Infographics today announced the launch of FireWatch v.7.8, delivering an intuitive, Web-based user experience, new solution modules, and a range of major features that meet specialist fire and rescue needs.
The launch is the culmination of a complete UX redesign to provide a fresh look and feel, and includes a raft of new capabilities that make the market-leading leading solution more intuitive, and expand on its existing platform for the integrated management of people, assets and business processes within the fire service.
Key highlights in FireWatch 7.8 include:
• Connecting planning, prevention and response systems with next-generation FireWatch functions
• A role-based approach to displaying focussed, live organisation status information
• Real-time Senior Management Team visibility of performance in line with IRMP
• A dashboard and KPI-driven user experience, with individual, manager, department and service-wide views and tasks
• A ‘Shift Marketplace’ to advertise and fulfil resource and skill deficits
• FRS-wide resource planning, with new ‘crewing analysis’ mode in the Availability Map
• Dynamic organisation charting, modelling and establishment analysis
Russell Wood, Commercial Manager at Infographics, said:
“This latest release is a significant milestone in our product development, joining up the prevention, planning and emergency response functions, and delivering highly specialist tools to help customers achieve compliance targets set by HMICFRS.
“We’ve redesigned the look and feel completely to provide a modern Web interface, navigated through actionable dashboards and live, role-based KPI trends, and we are already supporting clients with Azure cloud hosting – which we expect to grow in popularity with this latest version.”
FireWatch supports and integrates the management of fire and rescue services, covering senior management, human resources, availability, intelligent response, training and development, prevention and protection, hydrants, assets and fleet, health and safety, and workforce self-service.
Used by around 20 UK fire and rescue services, it is the market-leading resource planning and management software for this specialist area.
