CENTEGIX® Announces Strategic Partnership with GeoComm

by | Jun 19, 2024

ATLANTA —   CENTEGIX, the leader in incident response solutions, and  GeoComm , provider of locally authoritative indoor and outdoor Geographic Information Systems (GIS), announce their partnership to enhance school safety and enable mutual customers to share mapping data. This collaboration underscores both companies’ commitment to empowering customers with full ownership and control of their facility maps and associated mapping data.



“High-quality, dynamic maps are critical to almost every public safety application. Utilizing a mapping provider often requires a complete transition from one provider to another—a binary choice. GeoComm and CENTEGIX share the same philosophy that an organization should be able to easily and securely share their maps and mapping data across public safety applications and mapping platforms without concerns of vendor lock-in and unnecessary expense,” said Vince Zappa, Chief Product Officer of CENTEGIX.

Under this partnership, CENTEGIX and GeoComm can bidirectionally share their mapping data across their platforms on behalf of mutual customers. This will include crucial details such as structural and campus map data and asset information, ensuring that mapping information syncs to each platform and our mutual customers’ public safety applications.

“This strategic partnership not only reinforces our leadership in safety and emergency response but also aligns perfectly with our mission to provide schools, businesses, and communities with the best tools to ensure their safety,” said Bill McCullough, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of GeoComm. “By collaborating with CENTEGIX, we are setting new standards in the industry for how organizations should handle data, prioritizing customer autonomy and operational effectiveness.”

GeoComm empowers organizations and emergency responders with actionable location intelligence consisting of GIS maps and technology, including detailed indoor maps, to aid in reducing response times. Most recently, GeoComm, an Esri Platinum Partner in the Esri Partner Network, has completed creating indoor maps and providing GIS applications to over 1,400 K-12 schools across the state of Iowa.
