Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Partners with TomTom to Optimize Emergency Response in the Asia-Pacific Region

Huntsville, Alabama, April 13, 2016 – Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure will provide map and traffic data from TomTom as part of Hexagon’s public safety solutions in the Asia-Pacific region. Through a licensing agreement with TomTom Global Content B.V., Hexagon will include TomTom’s full mapping and traffic content with Hexagon’s industry-leading incident management software, Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD), to help optimize emergency response performance in a dozen countries, including Australia, India and South Korea.

TomTom’s global road network database integrates turn-by-turn directions and road data, including signage, intersections and congestions, in real time. This results in more up-to-date and precise address points, street networks and routing. Hexagon’s I/CAD features complete, integrated capabilities for call handling and dispatching, intelligent mapping, field communications, data reporting and analysis and application integration — providing a common operating picture for intelligent response. Combining I/CAD with TomTom’s data can help increase dispatching accuracy and reduce response times to incidents and emergencies in the countries served under the agreement.

“We look forward to leveraging our partnership with TomTom to benefit dispatchers and first responders and drive additional value within our public safety solutions, raising both the performance and productivity of public safety and security agencies throughout the Asia-Pacific region,” said Mike Creevey, country manager, Australia, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure.

As an official reseller of TomTom’s content under the agreement, Hexagon can advertise, distribute and promote TomTom’s map and traffic data, which is fully integrated into I/CAD, in Australia, Brunei, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

“We are excited that Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has selected TomTom to help provide real-time maps and traffic data for Hexagon’s leading I/CAD software,” said Phil Allen, general manager, licensing, South East Asia and Oceania, TomTom, “We are confident that TomTom’s content will contribute to improved response times during critical situations.”

TomTom is a global leader in navigation and mapping products. The company’s global map database covers more than 46 million kilometers and more than 4 billion people worldwide and features full navigable coverage for 135 countries. TomTom’s map-based components include map content, online map-based services, real-time traffic and navigation software.

The global leader in public safety and security solutions, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps protect 1 in 12 people worldwide. By improving the quality, accuracy and availability of critical information, Hexagon’s integrated solutions increase public safety and security performance and productivity, while reducing the total cost of ownership for mission-critical IT investments.
