PenBay Solutions Invision Secure Supports Event Planning & Operations for Super Bowl XLVIII
Super Bowl XLVIII brought fans from across the country to the New York metro area, and while the game was the main event, there were hundreds of smaller events leading up to the game – everything from parties to press events.
While these attractions provided entertainment to visitors and residents alike, they introduced significant challenges for the public safety organizations in charge of protecting these millions of people. To address the scale and complexity of the challenges – including the process of coordinating state, local, federal and private agencies – FDNY worked with PenBay Solutions to roll out a new event management solution using InVision Secure software. InVision Secure, a map-based public safety platform that leverages Esri® ArcGIS® Online, was used to support planning and operations throughout the Super Bowl and the weeks leading up to it.
“PenBay Solutions is honored to receive this award with FDNY,” said Bill Barron, CEO of PenBay Solutions. “As an Esri Gold Partner, our primary purpose is to help our customers solve their strategic challenges – whether they be around portfolio planning; facility management, operations and security; or public safety.”
