The Resource Manager is a web-based resource monitoring solution that delivers resource visibility and tracking capabilities throughout all phases of all phases of any type of incident.
The system’s automated inventory workflow is based on National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS) processes and principles including FEMA’s resource management lifecycle. The solution helps to track inventory items and provides cost visibility throughout all phases of incidents and daily operations.
As natural or manmade incidents move from routine to extreme, layers of complexity emerge and uncertainty begins to rise. Affected areas grow from local to regional and multi-agency coordination of assets and responding personnel can become overwhelming. In these types of events, incident commanders are faced with non-stop incoming requirements – resource requests, inquiries, requests for action that arrive simultaneously in different formats such as email, phone, radio, etc. To manage this dynamic environment effectively, Previstar offers Resource Manager - a system with the right mix of capabilities, scalability, and flexibility to meet these operational complexities.

When combined with Incident Manager, the suite becomes an ideal solution for multi-agency coordination (MAC) systems, as well as preparedness and response agencies that want to achieve situational awareness, collaboration and standards-based incident management.
