How Verint NowForce is helping tackle coronavirus pandemic

Secured by Design member company Verint Systems is assisting governments and health and emergency services teams as they tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

As organisations across the globe are forced to contend with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, nothing has become more important than ensuring the safety, health, and well-being of employees and the public. The unfolding situation brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has also accelerated global intelligence needs, demanding technology solutions that can be deployed immediately and provide the insight required to address the dynamic environment.

Verint NowForce, a powerful and secure cloud-based solution designed for incident management and response, has been successfully implemented in a multi-region area to support the containment of the coronavirus pandemic.

NowForce is assisting governments and health and emergency services teams with two-way communication tools, live maps, and increased intelligence that provide visibility and insight to better coordinate actions in real-time. Mission-critical personnel are therefore able to gain situational awareness, communicate directly with impacted individuals, and collect the information needed to appropriately handle the situation.
