Cloud platform allows Humberside FRS anytime, anywhere access for mobile teams

Infographics has announced that Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has moved to the FireWatch Cloud – a fully-managed service based on the Microsoft Azure platform.

The new FireWatch Cloud solution will provide a resilient architecture, flexible access to the FireWatch integrated fire service management platform from remote locations, and includes software upgrade services and other benefits.

Richard Jacques, ICT Data & Applications Manager at Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, said, “We are delighted to be working with Infographics on our move to the FireWatch cloud platform. Although this decision is not as a direct result of the current COVID-19 situation, it clearly reinforces the validity of our strategy and benefits of having resilient systems available from anywhere, at any time, with the ability to quickly adapt and scale as needed without reliance on corporate networks and systems.

“That, along with the breadth of features, integrated user experience, teams and workflows available with the FireWatch Cloud platform, will ensure we are in an even stronger position to support the operations of our Fire Services during these challenging times and thereafter.”

Russell Wood, Commercial Manager at Infographics, said, “We are delighted to announce Humberside Fire and Rescue as another new client of our FireWatch Cloud offering. This follows multiple other recent new FRS contracts, with more to follow in the coming weeks and months. The benefits of the specialist, connected FireWatch Fire Service Management platform in the Cloud are clear and compelling – providing our clients with the ‘big picture’ of their operations and helping them keep working as an integrated service – whatever their location or circumstances.”
