DURAsuite

Posted Mon, 01/19/2009 - 15:48 by admin

DURAsuite is an application suite specifically designed to manage "mission critical" and "life critical" messages and alarms.

Typically used in areas where reliability and robustness are mandatory like hospitals, agedcare facilities, industrial operations and prisons, DURAsuite is deployed in over 400 sites throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.

DURAsuite is a set of software modules that manages the receipt, display, distribution, escalation and logging of critical alarms and messages. DURAsuite can in essence receive alarms and messages from any source and deliver that information as a text message to any destination.

DURAsuite is Java based and operates on a Linux powered Ascom appliance known as as an Open Java Server (OJS). With a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of over 20 years the Ascom OJS platform provides exemplary stability and reliability.

DURAsuite is developed and fully supported from Australia. With a dedicated development team of eight and an ambitious product roadmap, DURAsuite is a highly innovative and customer focused application that is continually improving.

DURAsuite is designed with simplicity in mind...

Simple to install
Using DURAsuite means that installation and maintenance service operations can easily deploy and maintain high levels of end-user functionality that would be complex and require very detailed specialist knowledge with traditional applications.

Simple to use
DURAsuite enables customers to provide greater levels of protection to their staff and gain greater workplace efficiencies with very intuitive and simple to use Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs).

DURAsuite is comprised of approximately 10 modules that perform various parts of the message/alarm receipt, display, distribution, escalation and logging process. They are...

DURAevent
DURAevent is at the heart of the DURAsuite application. DURAevent is what is known as an event handler, which is an engine that controls all the alarms and messages as per pre-defined business rules.

DURAalarm
Is an internet browser based GUI for displaying the location and detail of mobile duress, fixed duress, dry contacts and management system generated alarms. DURAalarm works in conjunction with DURAevent to optimise the alarm response process.

DURAtest
Is an internet browser based GUI that enables users to regularly test the Personal Alarm functionality of their Ascom handheld unit.

DURAroute
Is a module traditionally used in prisons and corrective facilities to measure the time taken by staff to travel between specific points in a fixed route. DURAroute will raise an alarm automatically if there are any discrepancies in the time taken to get between the specific points or any changes to the sequence of the route.
