Command Solutions - Incident Command Software (ICS), is the world's most easy to use, cost effective and comprehensive incident command software, designed by the emergency services, for the emergency services.

In addition to fire brigades, police forces and ambulance services, ICS can also be used by airports, ports, civil defence forces, transport authorities, oil, gas, power and chemical operators.

Our ICS dramatically improves situational awareness, decision support and logging to the whole command chain through a live Common Operational Picture, ICS significantly strengthens collaboration between all personnel and agencies involved in each incident.

Its intuitive graphical user interface, which automatically records the history of all information entered by all incident participants accessing the software. ICS delivers a single electronic portal for all incident information – including;

Drag-and-drop Organisational Chart builder; See who is in attendance, build your chain of command (API allows connectivity to your existing MOBS, CAD, AVLS)

Tactical Planning Board; Build your strategy, tactical priorities and operational actions as a tree diagram. Re-prioritise in an instant by dragging and dropping.

Digital Whiteboard Planning Board; Drawyour overall plan, sector plans. Import Google Maps and Street View, then Annotate over them to convey what you need

Casualty Management; track and manage public and res-ponder safety

System Activity Log; capturing all activity performed by all users in real-time, review what information was available at any moment in the past using our unique ‘time shuttle’ (patent pending). Supports critical analysis by services operational assurance function.

Decision Log; record text, audio or video decisions

SOPs; Access and manage a library of your own standard operating procedures

Document Manager; Upload any file type, including scans of any paper information provided on scene

Map; See your risk data over google earth, search for an address, or upload any key location information, such as hydrants, CCTV camera locations, flood maps etc.

External Sources; Connect to other live information feeds, including CCTV, eye in the sky, IP cams, or Drone feeds, weather

ICS integration with your other software systems - Data can also be imported from other systems, such as control room mobs, and exported from within ICS to other information stores, such as the UK's National Resilience Extranet.

If communications are lost during an incident, the system can still be used to manage the incident. As soon as communications have been restored, the most up-to-date incident data is automatically shared across all other devices logged into the incident.

ICS also shares the same information with multiple users, but with the added benefit that each user can look at a different part of the Common Operational Picture at the same time, providing the view that is most appropriate to their task. There is no other incident command software that can deliver this level of support, to anyone who requires it no matter what size of incident.

Time Shuttle allows the user to slide a time bar backwards and forwards to load how incident information looked at a given point in time – particularly useful for Incident Commanders taking responsibility for an incident, during handover with the incumbent commander they can go back and review all information to understand how the current situation was reached.

Decision Support ICS provides a unique suite of decision support tools, unavailable in any other solution on the market - including Atmospheric Gas Release Modelling, Explosion Modelling, Thermal Radiation Modelling & Water Requirement Calculator and a host of others real world benefit operational support tools.

In addition;

ICS supports all Decision Action cycles through a soft workflow model of your choosing, by default this is set to correspond with UK Home Office Joint Decision Making (JDM) model. The software provides the user with a visual aide memoire on the main screen, each of the data points within the software’s modules can be set to be colour-coded to the relevant stage of an organisation’s response process.

ICS is an intuitive, easy to use graphical user interface, which requires little to no training to be able to use. The software is responsive, meaning it automatically scales for touch optimisation, allowing responders and commanders to interact with any module on any device, from hand-held device such as smartphones and tablets, through to touch enabled large screen, as well as your traditional workstation.

ICS is equally valuable for both routine response and for major events and incidents, as well as being entirely scalable to support multi-agency or multi-national response to natural disasters.

ICS recognises that sharing a Common Operational Picture does not mean that everyone needs to look at the same part of the software at the same time. The Command Support System™ enables commanders to view the incident data from their own perspective: a strategic commander can view data across the entire area of operation; an incident commander can choose to only view the response structure.

ICS is designed to prevent information overload, intuitively showing what information is most required depending how the user is interacting with the software’s screens. Key features can be switched on or off depending on what the user wishes to see, or determined by the permissions granted via your organisations IT administrators.

For organisations who must manage multiple incidents or events, or who may be faced with multi-location based incidents, there is ICS Strategic Overview built directly in to the software. This feature of the software’s architecture allows multiple incidents to exist in parallel at the same time - strategic commanders and control room staff can view all ongoing incidents across their organisational or geographical area of operation on a single screen, as well as a continually updated summary of all assets and personnel deployed across all active incidents.
