BlackBerry is expanding the capability of its crisis communication software to enable government agencies and large organizations to account for their people in real-time. AtHoc Account automates personnel accountability and crisis communication processes by providing safety and availability status updates of people before, during and after an event – ultimately providing the information leaders need to make operational decisions.
With an integrated approach to personnel accountability, AtHoc Account combines inputs from managers about their team, call center operators, data streams from HR and travel systems, as well as self-reporting by individuals. It enables organizations to meet mandates for accounting for their people by consolidating safety information into a report that can be initiated at a variety of organizational levels: group, installation, facility, regional or enterprise-wide.
“In times of crisis, situations change quickly. Organizations need a way to get information to their people and understand in real-time how an incident is affecting its resources so they can make informed safety-critical decisions,” said Billy Ho, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Products and Solutions, BlackBerry. “AtHoc Account is a comprehensive solution that helps government agencies and enterprises comply with regulations and digitally transform their operations. It is another example of how BlackBerry is securing the Enterprise of Things by applying its deep experience, industry leadership and ongoing product innovation to addresses real-world needs.”
