Geac Responds to Call for Software Assistance

Geac Public Safety Inc. has won a $1.9 million contract from the Illinois State Highway Toll Authority to provide software to send police, maintenance and emergency vehicles out on calls throughout the toll highway system.

Under the contract, Geac Public Safety also will provide systems integration services for the set up of the computer-aided dispatch system, including hardware, software, interfaces and training, the company said April 12.

The software solution includes dispatch mapping and modifications to streamline the requirements of toll highway services.

The system will be designed in conjunction with the Toll Authority's Traffic Incident Management System being developed for its Traffic Operations Center.

The Geac software applications will run on IBM RS/6000 F80 servers, according to the company.

Geac Public Safety of Tampa, Fla., which specializes in public-safety software applications for law enforcement and fire and rescue departments, is a division of Geac Computer Corp. Ltd. of Toronto.

Geac Computer Corp. had more than 5,000 employees and sales of $668 million in 2000, according to Hoover's Online of Austin, Texas.
