CriticalArc announced today that its second annual SafeZone EMEA End User Conference will take place this week at Edinburgh Conference Centre, Heriot-Watt University (7 to 8 March). This year’s event – which acts as a SafeZone steering group and is unique within the sector – will bring together users from across the UK with other industry professionals to share their ideas and experiences, to further strengthen the existing SafeZone user community, and to help provide new insights to guide future product developments.
CriticalArc’s two co-founders, Glenn Farrant, CEO and Jahmai Lay, CTO will also join the conference to update delegates directly on current and planned SafeZone developments, to facilitate workshops and group discussions, and to get more detailed end-user feedback.
The headline sponsor for this year’s conference is Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. Aruba has recently signed a technology partnership with CriticalArc to integrate its Meridian location services platform with SafeZone. This powerful new combination will enable SafeZone to offer pinpoint location accuracy within even the most challenging multi-story buildings and to allow faster and more efficient incident responses, targeted messaging and real-time visualisation of assets.
“CriticalArc is constantly striving to enhance SafeZone’s offering and looking for technical partners who can complement our solution. The new partnership with HPE Aruba will enable us to offer much more detailed, real-time mapping within buildings to improve our safety and security capability, and will further strengthen our market leadership position,” said Darren Chalmers-Stevens, CriticalArc EMEA managing director.
