A new member for TCCA
May 2022: A critical messaging specialist has announced its membership of TCCA, the global representative organisation for the critical communications ecosystem chaired by CRJ Advisory Panel Member, Mladen Vratonjic
Based in Finland, Secapp develops and manages the eponymous Secapp critical communications and alerting Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, designed for use in emergency and disaster situations.
“We have designed Secapp with the emphasis on reliability and security – both essential foundations of critical communications,” says Timo Harju, Head of Partnerships, Secapp. “The rapid dissemination of information in a crisis situation is essential, and in joining TCCA we look forward to becoming further integrated into the critical communications ecosystem that supports first responders and critical users around the world.”
Secapp is designed for improving safety, managing infrastructure and processes, as well as keeping people informed. It works by combining all commercial communications channels (apps, SMS, automated calls, email) and authority communication (TETRA) channels into one solution, enabling the broadcast of mass notifications, alerts to individuals and teams, and the collection and sharing of critical data.
“Secure messaging technology is increasingly in demand to help individuals and communities in a crisis situation, to maintain essential services and to ensure critical information is accessible,” notes Kevin Graham, TCCA Chief Executive. “As well as first responders, organisations such as hospitals, public authorities and key industries must be kept informed so they can operate as normally as possible to help mitigate the crisis. Secapp has had success in many sectors, and we are pleased to welcome the company as a new TCCA member.”
On behalf of its members, TCCA represents all standard mobile critical communications technologies and complementary applications. Our members are drawn from end users, operators and industry across the globe. We believe in and promote the principle of open and competitive markets worldwide through the use of open standards and harmonised spectrum. We drive the development of common global mobile standards for critical broadband and maintain and enhance the TETRAProfessional Mobile Radio (PMR) standard.
