Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Launches Incident Command System Application

Huntsville, Alabama, June 13, 2017 – Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has launched Intergraph® Planning & Response, an application for managing major incidents and events. The system integrates and coordinates resources, procedures and communications during large-scale emergencies, natural disasters, festivals, sporting events and more. It supports individual or multiple agencies and works across jurisdictions and tiers of command.

Formerly a regional Hexagon product, Intergraph Planning & Response has been updated with new features, including a mobile app, and is now globally available. Unveiled at HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s international conference, Intergraph Planning & Response comprehensively fulfills incident command system (ICS) requirements. It harnesses the collective capabilities of diverse responders and provides a single source of information throughout the entire life cycle for safe, efficient and effective operations.

Unlike applications that only support specific capabilities or stages of major incident and event management, Intergraph Planning & Response is a single, unified solution for all agencies, needs and stages of operation. It supports single or unified incident command: on-scene, in tactical operations centers and at emergency operations centers.

Intergraph Planning & Response enables a highly diverse group of public and private-sector agencies, which may rarely work together, to operate as a coherent team with common purpose and direction. It provides overarching command, coordination and oversight without changing the systems and processes responders rely on in their day-to-day operations. 

“The scale and complexity of major incidents and events set them apart from routine incident management. Incident command system standards and protocols provide a framework for overcoming these challenges, but agencies also need comprehensive tools to put ICS into action as efficiently as possible,” said Steve Marz, vice president of product management, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Intergraph Planning & Response provides a complete application for managing the entire life cycle of operations, from planning through response and recovery.”

A web-based application, it can be hosted remotely at secure facilities or in the cloud, which promotes resilience. Users access the system via the web, which enables universal access and supports disconnected operation. A mobile app provides access to tasks, maps and messages on tablets and smartphones.

A common operating picture, organization chart and line of command, strategic objectives and action lists are integral to the system’s operation and can be adapted on the fly in response to changing needs. Intergraph Planning & Response features an interface to Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) and can be integrated with other external systems.

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