Insta DefSec to deliver the new emergency response center system for Åland

Insta Response™ has been selected as the new information system solution for Åland’s emergency response center (Alarm Center Åland). The system is expected to be introduced by 2020. Åda Ab organized the call for tenders at the request of Maria Hoikkala, Chief of Police, Police Authority of Åland.

The security and modern technology of Insta Response™ will start a new era in Alarm Center Åland enabling them to meet the requirements set for internationally advanced emergency response center operations and cooperation across many authorities. The Insta Response™ product family also forms the basis for the new ERICA system of the Finnish Emergency Response Centre Administration.

 “We have been in a great need for a new system for a long time,” says Karl Nordlund, supervisor of the Alarm Center Åland. “Insta Response streamlines the work of operators and makes it more efficient. In addition to functionality and availability requirements, the system meets our high information security, quality, and reliability requirements. We are very pleased.”

“Alarm Center Åland and the Finnish Emergency Response Centre Administration are very important customers to Insta. Success in the home market is a vital stepping stone for Insta Response's internalization.  The product's success and strong market position will guarantee a system with a long life cycle for all customers, including Alarm Center Åland,” says Jari Mielonen, Executive Vice President.

Insta Response has sparked much international interest in trade fairs and demo events. It will be introduced this week at the EENA conference in Slovenia and at the Critical Communications World conference in Berlin this May.
