Lauren Innovations' NaviGate™ System to Provide the Basis for Collaborative Development to Deliver Learning and Incident Management Systems through IPC's InSite™
 
IPC International Corporation, the leading international provider of full-service security for public and private venues, including shopping centers, corporate campuses, entertainment venues and government facilities, has announced the creation of a collaborative relationship with Lauren Innovations, provider of the NaviGate Critical Information Management System.
 
IPC and Lauren Innovations have developed IPC's InSite, a web-based platform that will allow IPC to provide its clients with a robust Learning Management System (LMS) and a detailed Incident Management System (IMS) with visual pin mapping ability. The Learning Management System within IPC's InSite will also deliver IPC's advanced training to security officers, supervisors and employees. Navigate, available through Lauren Innovations, serves as the platform for a turnkey Emergency Management System that aids and enhances communication with emergency responders.
 
"IPC continues to invest in innovative technology solutions for our clients and their properties, supporting our mission of protecting people and places." said Russell C. Collett, Chief Operating Officer for IPC International. "The collaboration with Lauren Innovations presents a perfect opportunity for IPC to enhance our service delivery and continue to provide the highest level of security services for our clients. This unique and leading edge technology is not seen anywhere else in the industry."
 
The Learning Management System within IPC's InSite will allow IPC to deliver its advanced training programs and share vital security related information online via web-based access to its officers, supervisors, employees and clients, Collett added. The Incident Management System with pin mapping will strengthen its ability to identify incident trends and locations at each property and then share actionable intelligence with key players for security coordination, and planning purposes.
 
"We are delighted to work with IPC International on this collaborative effort", said Bennett Fierman, PhD and president of Lauren Innovations. "Given the learning and incident management capabilities of IPC's InSite, it is an ideal platform for the creation and expansion of value-added applications focused on IPC's core offerings of security, public safety and customer service. We are proud to work with a company that is a recognized industry leader."
