April 28, 2015 -- The Australian & New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference, held on the Gold Coast 4th - 5th May 2015, is the ideal opportunity for managers and decision-makers to learn more about a powerful new emergency management platform called Gruntify ( www.gruntify.com).
Being able to respond to natural disasters quickly and efficiently is the core aim of any emergency management team. Enter Gruntify – an effective tool to aid faster data collection in the field and faster coordination of responses.
Its data capture app harnesses the power of crowdsourcing and the cloud. The app allows agency staff as well members of public to very quickly send reports containing location, image and other important details in real-time to a web-based dashboard.
From this platform – a visual, web-based workflow engine similar to Twitter – the disaster management team can:
- Identify the most urgent issues
- Identify problem hotspots
- Schedule responses
- Track the progress of a particular response
- Provide real-time notifications to all those involved
The collection of this real-time data during and after a disaster means that detailed assessments and allocation of resources can be made in just minutes.
Learn all about Gruntify from its inventor, Igor Stjepanovic, at GIS People's partner’s booth (Arcus IT Solutions) at the Australian & New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference, or visit www.gruntify.com to request a demo.
