AdvanceDispatch Adds Real-Time Traffic Intelligence

MedaPoint Inc. continues to add cutting-edge features to its AdvanceDispatch product technology

AUSTIN, Texas—The new Unit Recommendation feature leverages real-time traffic intelligence to provide an estimated travel time that is not just based on the distance from unit to scene, but also on current traffic conditions. For instance, when there's been a wreck on the interstate, one unit might be very close, but its response time might be impacted by the traffic created by the wreck. A unit that is farther away, but not impacted by the wreck--‐related traffic would make it to the scene in half the time. With this groundbreaking data, first responders are able to make critical decisions efficiently.

AdvanceDispatch is the first in the industry to offer this technology, setting it further apart from competitors. The application is built from EMS providers’ point of view, and MedaPoint continually improves the software by introducing features – such as the Unit Recommendation – that are based on input from its customers.

AdvanceDispatch is a web-based EMS dispatch software that requires only a web browser to operate. For more information on this feature, AdvanceDispatch, or MedaPoint’s other products, go to to learn more or contact a representative.
