From within the GIS module, users can view and manage resource inventory, deployments, facilities, skilled personnel, incident locations and other critical information.
The mobile capabilities of the suite is designed for the needs of field personnel. The streamlined phone view works seamlessly on hand held devices and allows modification and review of plans on smartphones and tablets.
