Public safety and security organizations need to achieve and maintain high levels of service, while managing the expectations of citizens, the mandates of public officials and regulators, and the impacts of new forms of technology, including AI, social media and mobile communications.
And public safety agencies need the right information at the right time to plan and deliver vital services. However, legacy technologies, shrinking budgets and staffing pressures, a lack of technical resources, and resistance to change create challenges for organizations. Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division can help. By improving the quality, accuracy, and availability of critical information, our integrated solutions increase performance and productivity, while reducing the total cost of ownership for mission-critical IT investments and the staff that use them.
All over the world, public safety agencies are undergoing a process of modernization, needing to radically rethink workflows by leveraging next-generation technologies. Organizations are challenged to digitally transform, build more trust and engagement with the communities they serve and retain and increase their skilled workforces – all while dealing with new pressures and increasing calls for service.
Agencies are no longer questioning if they should invest in digital technology, but how, by what method and with whom.
So, what does an agency need to be successful on its digital transformation journey?
Agencies should have an integrated, innovative and flexible ecosystem of digital capabilities to serve as a foundation, as well as a trusted, experienced partner with the right experts to guide them through modernization and transformation.
In these rapidly changing times, public safety agencies need more than just technology. They need a trusted partner with a proven platform they can count on when crises hit, demand spikes and times get tough. Their partner must have the experience to help them improve their services and digitally transform at their own pace.
Agencies need a technology provider with decades of experience – one that is not going to disappear after the sale. With more than 30 years of public safety experience, Hexagon is proud to partner with more than 420 active public safety customers in more than 40 countries.
Agencies need a technology provider with a modern, advanced and integrated public safety platform. Hexagon is proud to offer a flexible platform that is built for the user, available on-premises or in the cloud, delivers next-gen capabilities and provides innovative AI technologies.
Agencies need a technology provider that is also a partner and advisor – one they can count on when times get tough and doesn’t need to be replaced every few years. We believe a true partnership enables agencies to be successful by providing unique client enablement tools combined with our consultative, relationship-driven approach.
Agencies need a technology provider with experts – people who not only understand the specific challenges of the public safety industry, but also the unique needs of each customer. Hexagon’s people understand our work is more than technology; it’s about developing relationships and solutions that will be in place for years to come and helping agencies meet their goals and protect their communities.
