CentralSquare Acquires Tellus to Form Single Virtual Dispatch System
Friday 24 May 2019

24 May 2019 - Florida, US-based public safety and public administration software provider CentralSquare has acquired Utah US-based Tellus Safety Solutions, LLC, connecting multiple computer-aided dispatch systems used by emergency responders, the company said.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
CentralSquare already works with over 5,000 public safety agencies. To accelerate the building of a single, virtual, nationwide 911 dispatch system, current CentralSquare clients will immediately get complimentary access to real-time situational awareness across jurisdictions cutting emergency response time by up to two minutes per incident and potentially enabling first responders to save nearly 125,000 lives nationwide.
With this acquisition, CentralSquare is promoting public safety without borders by building a single, virtual dispatch system across North America where multiple agencies on disparate 911 software solutions can operate and communicate with each other as if they are on a single system thereby reducing response time and saving lives.
CentralSquare was formed by the merger of Superion, TriTech along with Zuercher, and the public sector and healthcare business of Aptean.
The company is an industry leader in public safety and public administration software, serving over 7,650 organisations from the largest metropolitan city to counties and towns of every size across North America.
Tellus, is a standards-based information-sharing technology that connects and integrates with most independent CAD systems.
By joining CAD systems together, dispatchers can correctly identify closest-available resources and coordinate emergency response across many agencies and jurisdictions.
