Woking, Surrey 22nd April 2014 – Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are pleased to announced that after a competitive tender process, Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service have selected the Symphony Bluelight corporate gazetteer management system for the management of their Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase Premium data.
Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service have been using the precursor to AddressBase Premium, the NLPG, for five years and integrated it into many of their back office systems. With the phasing out of the NLPG and a desire to expand the integration into their control room setting using AddressBase Premium, they sought a new supplier that would enable them to achieve this expansion.
Symphony Bluelight, which is a range of gazetteer products designed specifically for use in the emergency services, compromises modules that will allow Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service to create, manage and enhance their address data, synchronise other systems using the UPRN (unique property reference number), and importantly to integrate AddressBase Premium into frontline and back office systems either through web services or automated exports.
This integration will be achieved using a combination of Symphony SinglePoint and Symphony Bluelight iExchange, and in addition to their Remsdaq Command and Control, integration will be initiated for their CFRMIS, IRS, Cognos and FSEC systems.
Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service also host a managed service for Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Authority and the Symphony Bluelight system will allow them to hold the two address datasets separately, but manage them through the one interface. The system will also enable the data to be integrated with Bedfordshire’s frontline and back office systems, which will include the Sophtlogic MIS, hydrant management system and their Internal Home Fire Safety Check System.
Speaking of the purchase, Katy Smith, Geo Spatial Intelligence Analyst at Cambridge Fire and Rescue Service said, “We are delighted to be working closely with Aligned Assets to transition from the NLPG to Address Base Premium. With the move to Symphony Bluelight, we will be able to expand and utilise Address Base Premium to its full potential in both our control and back office environments. The move will allow the service to streamline processes and release further cost savings, while allowing us to strengthen our working relationships with our partners.”
Managing Director of Aligned Assets, Andy Hird, concluded by saying, “When fully set up and all integrations are in place, the Symphony Bluelight system will provide both Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Services with the very latest in address data and gazetteer technology.”
