GrandView Technology Unveils
Modernized Approach to Emergency Management
DENVER, October 16, 2017—Spearheading its efforts to modernize emergency management and homeland security, GrandView Technology launched its Snapshot product today at the Smart Cities Conference in Chicago.
Snapshots provide emergency managers, city planners, and other key stakeholders with comprehensive insight into community vulnerabilities. The first product offered by GrandView, each Snapshot identifies population vulnerability on a geographic basis for up to 12 disaster scenarios and is available for $490 per scenario Snapshot. Each Snapshot includes maps and data tables designed to be integrated directly in Threat Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRAs), emergency operations plans, and exercise documents.
GrandView is also soliciting beta testers for its Dynamic application that will equip emergency mangers with the information they need to effectively and efficiently mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. The Dynamic application, which the company is targeting to launch in January 2018, will offer real-time situational assessments, including forward-leaning decision support and comprehensive consequence projections using multiple data sources, a series of algorithms, and machine learning elements. It will be offered as a subscription service for $14,900 per year.
GrandView co-founder Sarah Tuneberg has worked in the emergency management field since hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005.
“I can’t tell you how many times I worked alongside emergency response leaders and elected officials who struggled to make time-pressured, life-saving decisions because they didn’t have the right information in a functional format,” Tuneberg said. “To conquer such problems, our web-based solution will translate and integrate huge amounts of data into user-friendly outputs that are accessible whenever and wherever they’re needed.”
Tuneberg and fellow co-founder Craig Kalick, GrandView’s Chief Technology Officer, may be found in the Startup City portion of the Smart Cities Summit’s Expo Floor during the conference, which runs through Tuesday at McCormick Place.
