Iconic & tall buildings

Elevate your defence:
Demand the highest levels
in safety and security

Synapse will help to safeguard human lives, protect valuable assets and manage any type of critical event in the building by implementing the highest level of command, control and communication.

Where iconic buildings define skylines, the significance of safety and security cannot be overstated. These locations can house large populations of people and ensuring their safety is paramount.

In a critical event that impacts safety, security and building operations, the ability to accurately communicate actions and decisions is of highest importance. Trusting the software that commands and manages operational resilience is not merely an option but a necessity.


Is your location prepared
for an unpredictable World?

The digitalisation and unification of critical event management is mission critical, driving compliance and efficiency in the prevention, detection, response and recovery of an incident.

Unified data is your key to
strategic success

A unified data source provides a 'single pane of glass' and enables the prioritisation of all safety and security events. This ensures proactive risk management and mitigation, reducing the likelihood of emergencies and their potential impact. Neglecting safety and security data provides increased vulnerabilities, and, in worst cases, catastrophic consequences.
