The acquisition reaffirms Omnigo’s commitment to delivering software solutions that help public safety officers and security personnel to more efficiently perform their day-to-day activities, enhance safety and operational visibility and seamlessly maintain compliance.
IRT’s suite serves as a natural extension of Omnigo’s platform to help organizations pre-plan events, manage incidents in real-time and automate post-event incident command system (ICS) forms and submissions. IRT and Omnigo each serve a diverse range of end markets that are dedicated to community safety, inclusive of law enforcement, emergency management, higher education, gaming, healthcare and corporate enterprises. The companies share many overlapping customers, highlighting the power of the combined platform to improve operational efficiency, minimize risk and organize the entire safety and security management lifecycle, allowing institutions to focus on what they do best.
“With the addition of IRT’s loyal customer base, Omnigo now serves more than 2,700 organizations in more than 20 countries, who in turn serve multiple jurisdictions in the U.S., Canada and abroad,” said Richard DeFrancisco, Omnigo CEO. “We are positioned to help make a difference in our country’s future. We’re bringing together two very innovative companies that are passionate about public safety and security. Current and future customers can expect significant benefits as a result of this transaction.”
Rhodium provides a complete command and control solution allowing users to quickly consolidate information, coordinate assets and act accordingly. From day-to-day incidents to large scale, multi-agency responses, Rhodium is intuitive and scalable to any situation. Further, the platform automates the post-incident reporting process, inclusive of ICS forms, which are critical to customers’ maintaining compliance and funding.
“We are thrilled to join an amazing team who, like us, works extremely hard to transform the systems and processes that make our communities and citizens safer,” said Jarret Winkelman, president and CEO of IRT. “This is great news for our employees and our customers. Omnigo shares our philosophy and vision for the future of public safety and security, and we are excited to help expand their industry-leading solutions.”
Winkelman will now serve as the director of products at Omnigo.
