Products and Information
SmartBridge Enterprise is a comprehensive client-server dispatch, AVL and health and safety solution. AVL for Direct Connect and 3rd party integration, multiple map data providers, health and safety for lone workers, in an enterprise grade architecture.
Smartbridge Enterprise is designed for simplicity of operation, hiding a highly complex interface with the radio's and operational triggers. Using IP/Serial interfaces it is possible to have multiple radio's on different networks all connected and available to a dispatcher. In the case of MPT and DMR a single radio can be set to change networks simply based on the field radio the dispatcher is trying to call. SmartBridge Enterprise includes full audio comms, as well as health and safety welfare management, AVL, Messaging, use of SDM's for simplifying operational requirements, and a full audit log of actions for H&S audit reporting.
SmartBridge Enterprise supports multiple AVL feeds whether GPS reports from the radio, or 3rd party AVL feed based on cellular, linked to the radio user. All vehicle locations (even non-radio) can be shown on the map and tracked with historic overlays.
Now more than ever with serious obligations on managers and directors for Health and Safety reporting, having a complete audit log of communications is a critical part of compliance.
SmartBridge builds on the pedigree of integrating operational requirements, not just setting up a call or sending a message, with the overall goals of efficient operations, as well as efficient communications.

A complete call and message log. Calls and messages in/out and missed calls. Simply "flick" up and down the call log to find the call, and tap to call or message.
