La Défense –September 10th, 2020
Intersec is proud to announce it is named the winner of a bronze Stevie® Award in the Business Technology Solution category in the 17th Annual International Business Awards® today with its GeoSafe solution.
Geosafe is a solution that provides public authorities with instant geolocated communications & population movement analysis. It offers a multi-modal Public Warning System enabling governments to deal with mass alerting via Location-based SMS as well as Cell Broadcast. By combining these mobile alerting technologies, GeoSafe provides local authorities and public safety agencies with an effective emergency communication flow to increase population reach in case of alert or disaster.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small - are eligible to submit nominations. The 2020 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories.
With over 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry, competition was fierce and GeoSafe, once again, stood out, as we can read from the judges:
- “Very valuable service for public officials. Every second saved is valuable and Intersec is helping the public sector with a much-needed solution.”
- “By June 2022, the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) Article 110 requires
all EU countries to operate a public warning system that can send geo-targeted emergency alerts to all mobile phone users located in the affected area during a natural or man-made disaster. GeoSafe is a great product that combines both Cell Broadcast and Location-Based SMS as a public warning system. SMS bases warning system is especially helpful where a small population and no natural disaster is involved as it allows 2-way communication. CB is like a ‘digital siren’, the fastest and most reliable way to send a message during a rapid onset emergency. GeoSafe fulfills requirements under EECC Article 110.”
- “Intersec's Geosafe Public Warning System is an effective way for governments to broadcast messages based on the location of the people. It's definitely one of the solutions for the EU's requirement for PWS.”
Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.
