SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- TriTech Software Systems proudly announces the successful implementation of its 9-1-1 call handling solution at the Hamilton County 9-1-1 Emergency Communications District in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Hamilton County 9-1-1, the primary public safety answering point (PSAP) for one of the largest, most innovative counties in Tennessee, partnered with TriTech Software Systems for a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) call handling solution. The management team at Hamilton County 9-1-1 attributes the seamless transition of TriTech 911 to the system's ease of use, the highly effective implementation and training team, and the quick resolution of issues by TriTech's Customer Service organization.

Key Facts:

  • With the primary goal of implementing an NG9-1-1 proven system, Hamilton County 9-1-1 selected TriTech's 9-1-1 call handling solution after a thorough and competitive procurement process. Hamilton County Telecommunicators overwhelmingly favored TriTech 911 for its ease of use which also made for quicker and smoother user adoption. TriTech 911 enables the end users to have easy access to key reference numbers and additional information to expedite and process inbound 9-1-1 calls quickly.
  • TriTech's implementation team worked diligently to deliver TriTech 911 on time and within budget. The team members worked in sync to ensure that Hamilton County's technical staff had the requisite knowledge and ability to support their new NG9-1-1 solution.
  • With established connectivity to statewide Emergency Services Internet Protocol Networks (ESInets) and call delivery using Session Internet Protocol (SIP), TriTech 911 supports connectivity to both traditional CAMA trunks and Next Generation ESInets. Agencies utilizing TriTech 911 benefit from the flexibility of multiple deployment options, single-site non-Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) to multisite ACD, designed to meet an array of operational and budget requirements. As part of TriTech's Inform public safety suite, implementation of TriTech 911 is the first step towards a unified call management solution. TriTech provides a Next Generation PSAP solution combining the functions of 911 with CAD for a more efficient workflow.
