Spillman conference reveals software innovations, customer resources

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. – Sept. 20, 2010Four-hundred and thirty public safety personnel from 217 agencies across the country gathered in Salt Lake City today to receive hands-on training and preview the newest software solutions from Spillman Technologies.

Spillman kicked off its annual four-day Users Conference with several major new product and partnership announcements, including Spillman Touch™, an application that can be used with BlackBerry®, Palm® Pre™, iPhone® and Android smartphones, as well as with an iPad® or a desktop computer. Spillman Touch offers command staff, supervisors, patrol personnel, and detectives the ability to access records and images, view related alerts and warnings, search for real-time data, monitor dispatch information, and receive and update call assignments using a mobile device.

Spillman also unveiled a strategic alliance with Emergency Reporting (ER). Spillman’s new interface with ER’s industry-leading fire/EMS reporting and records management services allows fire departments to quickly complete fire and EMS reports, manage department events and tasks, and submit NFIRS data. Users can also transfer information from Spillman’s Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) module into ER’s software in real time. The system enables agencies to manage reporting, training, scheduling, inspections, and more from any Internet browser. Spillman also announced a new Fire Mobile product that caters to the unique needs of fire personnel, including a complete fire theme, map-centric views, larger touch-screen icons for gloved hands, and One Touch Status updates. Fire Mobile is expected to be available Q1 of 2011.

In addition, Spillman announced new CAD mapping integration with Pictometry, allowing customers to use aerial and oblique images of properties and structures in order to better identify property features such as entrances and fire escapes. The interface with Pictometry also gives users tools to measure distance, height, and surface area on and surrounding structures.

The conference will also highlight the Application Server, Spillman’s new Web-based control panel that gives users a simple way to manage multiple Web applications and administrative tools. Using the Application Server, customers can view information about system resources and software documentation, conduct server backups, and manage State Link settings and messages.
