Previstar’s Continual Preparedness System offers a standards-based incident lifecycle management solution – either as a comprehensive suite or as individual solution modules. Some of the salient features of the solution are listed below.

Notification System
Users can receive notifications within the system and to external email accounts or through SMS. Notifications can be received for events such as: Plan updates, tasks, resource tracking, direct messages, and automated notifications when critical information changes.
Microsoft Office Compatible
Users access their resources, personnel, and plans using a browser so data content is easily accessible on multiple devices and locations. Plans are viewed and edited in MS Word and resource data is exportable to MS Excel.
Modern User Login

Users login with an email address. This ensures easy account creation, password recovery (to an external email address), and notification delivery on multiple devices.

Compliance to Standards
CPS provides integration with National Incident Management System (NIMS) of US, giving user a up to date NIMS workflow, combined with intelligence and information management, integrated communications, and automated ICS work flow
Enhanced Security Features
Critical data is secured with one-way hashing (SHA 256 encryption) in the database. Password strength is configurable for user passwords. User access and data changes are logged within the database. Servers and data are hardened and data backed up to off-site storage.
Flexible Implementation

CPS can be provided as an on-site installed solution using client data-centers or as a hosted/SaaS solution at Previstar’s secure hosting facility. Previstar uses Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft SQL server.

Hierarchal Data Design

Data incorporated in a hierarchical manner where counties / municipalities / regions can manage their own incidents and invite others as the incident escalates.
