RA'ANANA, Israel, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that ProRail, the government
agency responsible for rail infrastructure in the Netherlands, is deploying
NICE Situator to help identify, verify and manage security, safety, and
operations in real time. The solution will also be instrumental in post-event
investigation, analysis and the ongoing evaluation of event handling. NICE is
partnering with Geodan, an expert in GIS and crisis management systems, to
implement this project.
From a single, centralized control room, ProRail will be able to manage tens
of thousands of incidents a year across the Netherland's rail systems,
including on-track malfunctions, fire incidents and other crisis situations.
With NICE Situator's automated and semi-automated tools, together with
predefined response plans, security operators will be able to rapidly and
effectively respond to unfolding events as they occur. This is expected to
enable ProRail to substantially decrease operational downtime caused by
accidents. Hundreds of ProRail employees from across the organization will
play a role in the operation of the system and will benefit from improved
communication, collaboration, and information sharing.
With the ability to identify, verify and respond to events in real time, the
NICE-Geodan solution will enable ProRail to mitigate risk and improve
operations. Since the solution can integrate with existing and new systems,
ProRail is able to leverage its current infrastructure and enjoy a lower total
cost of ownership.
"We are proud to be teaming up with market leader NICE Systems to provide
ProRail with this comprehensive solution, which has been uniquely customized
to address its specific needs," said Henri van Mil, Director at Geodan. "We
also recognize the value that this solution could bring for seaports,
airports, government bodies, and other local organizations that are
responsible for managing critical assets and infrastructure."
"Handling incidents faster and more efficiently is a high priority within the
rail sector, as our ultimate goal is to provide our customers with safe and
reliable transport.The joint solution offered by NICE and Geodan allows us to
unify and centralize operations," said Hans Smits, Director of Incident
Management at ProRail. "This means that we can provide all stakeholders with a
single picture of the situation, quickly inform relevant parties, and make the
right decisions faster."
"The ProRail deployment highlights the many facets of our advanced situation
management technology, including its ability to help organizations respond
quicker and more efficiently to unfolding incidents," said Yaron Tchwella,
President of the NICE Security Group. "The scope and complexity of this
project is also a testament to our leadership in the European security market,
particularly in the public transit sector.
