Why Never-Ending Emergencies are Driving a Need for Incident Management

By March 2, 2021Blog

The surprises never end. The unexpected has become the expected, like Texas having a winter weather emergency. What else will come our way? In short, it’s impossible to know. Although we can’t predict what tomorrow will bring, being prepared can ensure that you are ready for anything. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.” It’s why Incident Management has suddenly appeared as a priority on many operation’s radars. The race is on to magically create something to conquer sudden turmoil fast, but that’s not the way to produce a successful implementation or adoption by workplace peers and management teams.   

The fact is, emergency response management isn’t simply a thing that is quickly conjured into existence. It takes the right team, tools, and leadership to work in these uncertain times. It also takes time to put strategies in place when time isn’t a luxury you possess. Also, when an emergency blitzes in and decimates day-to-day plans, there is no “one-size-fits-all” response because no two scenarios are ever the same. Adaptability and scalability solutions are key for a rewarding situational incident management endgame.   

So, the big question is, how does this all come together? The essential need for a speedy response has shown that manual processes will not cut it. Reliable automation is necessary for aiding a fast turnaround during any event. Workforce and emergency management have both evolved past whiteboards, sticky notes, and manual phone calls that cause confusion, mistakes, and are demonstratable time-wasters. The future is here, and with it comes advanced ways to make sure you can respond as quickly as possible. Automating your systems can not only optimize your workforce but will also allow for uncompromised emergency management and record response times.    

Software companies like ARCOS have helped hundreds of businesses and thousands of individuals by automating processes and speeding up response and restoration intervals in any situation. Solutions like ARCOS CalloutCrew Manager, and Mobile Workbench terminate manual callouts during emergencies and daily operations, all while being able to track and manage crews remotely, even from your mobile device.

There is no better way than using proven technology to get the job done for you. Start by evening adaptability and the ability to scale crews or Incident Command Systems up or down to meet a current crisis’s requirements with solutions like ARCOS Incident ManagerARCOS has also helped companies bolster COVID-19 response.
