We are very proud to announce that the Civil Contingencies Secretariat within the Cabinet Office have today awarded Airbox the contract to maintain and develop the ResilienceDirect™ emergency planning and response platform.
ResilienceDirect™ is the UK’s secure web-based platform for all Category 1 and 2 responders, government departments and other key organisations in the UK resilience community. The service is free-to-use and allows users to share information during emergency responses, planning and exercises. Airbox’s portfolio of applications allows field operatives on land, sea and air to collaborate visually, sharing information through a simple, map-based interface.
The synergy between the two organisations was a key factor for the Cabinet Office when awarding the contract to Airbox. We both use dedicated software to enhance the sharing of information, allowing responders to be better informed, safer and more effective.
William Moore, CEO of Airbox Systems said: “We are excited about the possibilities brought by this new partnership with ResilienceDirect™. The team at the Cabinet Office and Ordnance Survey have created a fantastic platform used widely in the community. In the next phase we plan to engage with the end users to understand their wants and needs as we aim to increase platform usage, making it as relevant and useful to the community as we can.“
Luana Avagliano, Head of ResilienceDirect™ added “We were very impressed with Airbox’s tender submission and their dedication to our community. The synergy between our two organisations will prove paramount as we strive to take the platform forward to deliver an enhanced service. Over the coming weeks and months we will be working with our existing partners and Airbox to ensure a smooth transition of the service.”
