The platform maintains data quality control metrics to support NG9-1-1 ESInet services and quality control requirements for PSAP systems (CAD, CAD Mapping, AVL, and other business systems), which is critical now that there is only one source of location data used in call routing and dispatch workflows. The application integrates location data validation functionality and advanced editing capabilities into a platform that is accessed anywhere with an internet connection.
