PR Newswire

MONTREAL, Aug. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Next Generation Spatial Solutions Inc., a designer and developer of NG9-1-1 productivity software for Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP), is releasing version 3.21 of its flagship products. As part of its continuous improvement and refining process, NextGSS has implemented fifteen new features and enhancements across its PSAP Multi-Generation product line.

Through its comprehensive Application Program Interfaces (APIs), NextGSS family of products can interface with all Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Call Taking and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems available on the market today. Once integrated with NextGSS, PSAP's call takers, dispatcher and first responders have access to unique location and display services. While the MultiGen Location ServicesTM (MGLS) provides as you type sub-second response to dispatchable location queries, interior, intersections, similar civic locations and much more, the MultiGen Display ServicesTM (MGDS) product provides PSAP's personnel with the ability to reduce the number of monitors required at each workstation. MGDS has been conceived to combine tabular and geospatial information on a single screen for incidents, calls, units, geo-fence alarms, social media feeds, live weather and traffic.

''Over the years, the most frequent comment that has been shared with us by PSAPs' personnel is the challenge of keeping GIS data up to date. More precisely, this comment referred to maps and searchable data issues. In the case of maps, the issue could be as simple as adding new streets, while the searchable data issue for example could be a new house address in a new neighborhood. Complementing PSAP's maps is already an inherent function of our MGDS product through our integrated maps view interface, which provides a wide variety of alternatives with: Esri ArcGis Online, Google, Bing and HERE. Since keeping the GIS data up to date is a critical task for all GIS PSAPs' team, we came to the conclusion that we could help again by creating an extended online search option when there is no inhouse GIS searchable data readily available. This new feature is providing access to external geocoding services such as the ones offered by Esri and Google as a back-up GIS searchable data source option. We see tremendous benefits for call takers, dispatcher and first responders alike. In our humble opinion, it is all about giving access to the best GIS information available at any given time, ensuring that first responders are provided with all existing information to make timely decisions. We are very proud to announce that the extended online search option has been included in version 3.21.'' Said Karim Maghraby, NextGSS President.
