Genasys and Evertel Strengthen Protective Communications with Enhanced Agency Collaboration
SAN DIEGO, CA – October 4, 2023 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in protective communications systems and solutions, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Evertel Technologies, the leading cross-agency collaboration platform for public safety.
“As the complexity, intensity, and frequency of disasters increase, mass notification is no longer adequate. Protective communications must be a stronger, strategic pillar that incorporates planning and collaboration across first responder agencies while also efficiently relaying that information to the affected community” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys Inc. “Evertel’s solution set is complementary to the Genasys Protect platform as it expands proactive planning and real-time collaboration to accelerate emergency response time and improve execution.”
“The Evertel team is excited to join forces with Genasys” said Chief (Ret.) Jeff Halstead, President & co-founder of Evertel. “The synergy between our teams, product alignment and customer focused operating principles make our companies very complementary to drive adoption of compliant communication practices in mission critical operations.”
Planning, collaboration, and communication are key aspects of inter and intra agency partnership to mitigate and respond to an emergency. With the combined Genasys Protect and Evertel solution set, our customers will benefit from an extensive toolset for the entire lifecycle of an incident. Operating as a virtual Emergency Operations Center (EOC), the combined platform will be an extension of the tools that first responders use daily to drive response efficiency. Advanced post action analytics offered on the platform make it possible to enhance planning for the next incident. The partnership of Genasys Protect and Evertel is creating a new era of compliant collaboration and communication redundancy.
