We have been working on many new exciting things here at Genesis PULSE that we want to share with you!
This week, PULSE Product Manager Chad Richey is a featured presenter at the Waze Connected Citizens Program Summit at Google HQ in Paris. Chad was invited by Waze CCP to demonstrate how Genesis PULSE® with Waze integration significantly reduces response times for emergency vehicles.
Data reveals that 70 percent of the time crashes are reported by Waze users an average of 4.5 minutes before they are called into emergency response centers through 911.
A little over two years ago, Genesis PULSE® was released — a software tool for decision support and situational awareness for emergency call centers. Within a very short amount of time, call centers across the United States were using our program to enhance their dispatch processes, reduce response times, and completely innovate their after-action reviews.
Our newest customer, Champion EMS, based in Longview, TX chose Genesis PULSE for its decision-support features for dispatch, its Replay and Reporting features for supervisory and administrative personnel, and the added benefits of our exclusive Waze integration. The value of the PULSE solution became immediately visible. Read more
Genesis PULSE welcomes Champion EMS of Longview, TX as a new customer. Champion EMS operates ground and air medical services across twelve counties in East Texas. Like many Genesis PULSE customers, Champion EMS was in search of an all-in-one solution to supplement their computer-aided dispatch software. They chose PULSE for its decision-support features for dispatch to the Replay and Reporting features for supervisory and administrative personnel and the added benefits of our exclusive Waze integration.
Genesis PULSE features
Using Genesis PULSE™ with Waze integration, 911 call centers can easily pinpoint traffic events, such as construction, congestion or accidents. Using this data, dispatchers can send emergency units along faster routes, avoiding delays.
Today, Genesis is pleased to announce Genesis PULSE is launching a new in-vehicle mobile app with Waze integration. It provides first responders not only with current road conditions, but real-time, turn-by-turn navigation. All of the features of Waze and Genesis PULSE — combined in one powerful mobile interface.
Google’s amazing new self-driving cars may be the coming wave of the future, but sadly, they will not eliminate traffic issues. Fortunately, the Waze traffic app (owned by Google) is already on the front lines, fighting traffic one “Wazer” at a time. “Robots will still need to know the best route. We have a nice juicy role,” says Di-Ann Eisnor, vice president of platform and partnerships for Waze.
[October 6, 2015] Tyler, Texas — The Genesis Group today announced a data-sharing partnership with their emergency call center software, PULSE (http://genesispulse.com) and Waze (http://www.waze.com), the real-time crowdsourced navigation app powered by the world’s largest community of drivers. Designed as a two-way data share of traffic accidents, traffic congestion, and road closures, the Connected Citizens Program promotes greater efficiency, increased situational awareness for emergency personnel, deeper insights and safer roads for citizens in communities where the Genesis PULSE software is in use. This is the first integration worldwide for Waze into a public safety communications product.
