PLEASANTON, CA (October 26, 2011) – Tiburon today offered hearty congratulations to its client in Arlington County, Virginia for their key role in the National Capital Region (NCR) CAD to CAD Exchange which was recently awarded a 2011 Best of NIEM Award. The Exchange currently consists of fire departments in Arlington County, Virginia, the City of Alexandria and Fairfax County, Virginia. Arlington County uses Tiburon’s TotalCommand CAD software including the CAD to CAD capability offered for the product which was enhanced as a part of Tiburon and Arlington County’s participation in this project. Among the many benefits of the Exchange is a reduction in average response time – particularly with EMS calls – of 90-120 seconds.
Speaking of the project, the CAD Systems Manager at Arlington County, Roger Waller, remarked “It's amazing what can be accomplished by a group of dedicated people - from different agencies and vendors - whose primary goal is the success of a project having this kind impact on the industry, and who were not at all focused on who should get credit. This project truly showed, and continues to show, the power of collaboration.”
“Arlington County is to be congratulated for their part in this forward-looking and now award winning project,” commented Michael Bealmear, Tiburon’s CEO. “Tiburon has been a longtime supporter of data sharing and CAD interoperability since our earliest involvement in the IJIS Institute and our subsequent support of the related NIEM standard. A project like this depends on the collaboration and cooperation of many public and private entities and we’re glad to have played our part.”
