OTTAWA, June 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amika Mobile® is pleased to announce that the US Veteran’s Administration (VA) has approved the Amika® Mobility Server (AMS) platform for critical and emergency communication within its Technical Reference Model (TRM) software evaluation process. In addition, Amika Mobile has also just been certified as an International Women-Owned Business by WeConnect International.
“The TRM Approval from the VA is excellent recognition for Amika Mobile’s unique products in crisis management as we push the boundary to save lives. The AMS ability to initiate Lockdowns on the first detection of gunshot, according to First Responders, is the key method to saving lives in active shooter situations. Keeping people tracked and informed as the crisis unfolds is also critical as they shelter in place, and this is where our 2-way communications on every mobile device be it a phone, tablet, or desktop, is already saving lives,” said Amika Mobile® Co-Founder/CEO Sue Abu-Hakima.
Amika Mobile continues to push the boundary of innovation in crisis communications and has pioneered technology that addresses two gaps in safety and security. First, AMS automatically discovers wireline or mobile devices by location − especially important for sports arenas, entertainment venues, airports and campuses where stakeholders and visitors must be given clear instructions based on where they are when an emergency strikes. Second, AMS automatically detects and intelligently manages dynamic sensor events triggered from disparate physical security systems mapping locations as the critical situations unfold. Such dynamic events include gunshot detected, forced door entry, static or mobile Panic, card access under duress, detected motion from cameras, fire panel events, etc. AMS automatically delivers identified events to appropriate security teams at command centers or while mobile. Amika Mobile® has delivered such ground breaking solutions to customers for 10 years.
MarketsandMarkets forecasts the Incident and Emergency Management Market to grow from USD 80.10 Billion in 2015 to USD 101.33 Billion in 2020. This growth is driven by many factors including increase in workplace violence, terrorism, natural disasters and heightened awareness of the need for critical and emergency communication during a crisis.
“Our WeConnect certification provides us with additional exposure and access to safety and security buyers from leading domestic and multinational corporations committed to global inclusive sourcing,” added Amika Mobile’s CEO.
Amika Mobile will demonstrate its award winning AMS products at the WBENC 2017 booth #1348 in Las Vegas June 21st, National Sports Safety & Stadium Security Conference booth #307 July 11-12 in Orlando, as well as ASIS 2017 booth #507 in Dallas, Texas.
