Mobile Technology Reduces Response Time And Increases Event Safety And Security

March 28, 2019

2018 IAEE Tech Committee Expo! Expo! Show Selection

EXPOCAD(r) by A.C.T. originated and supplies location-based products to the events industry. The Aurora, Illinois-based company provides tools for floor plan sales and operations management, online eMarketing, exhibit space contracting and payment, exhibitor eMarketing and sales, on-site electronic space assignments, general service contractors and safety, and security professionals.

Expocad developed ELI™ (Emergency Location Interactive), for the exhibitions industry to prepare for and respond quickly to emergencies or organizational issues onsite. The mobile application addresses the needs of first responders, show management, building personnel, and security teams to share where an incident is occurring immediately or to locate a security breach or concern.

ELI allows safety and security personnel to access information on an area of concern simultaneously. Location links help them respond faster and more accurately using any venue indoors or out, including loading docks, classrooms, hallways, parking lots, lobbies, or anywhere the event impacts.

An easy-to-use interface on the event map messages the appropriate individuals, such as security chief, show manager, or venue personnel.  Emergency location links pinpoint precisely where immediate attention is required, such as with an unknown or suspicious package, an active shooter, fire, medical emergency, or other hazards. ELI saves precious seconds or minutes in an emergency.
