InterAct, formerly known as InterAct Public Safety Systems,[1] is a public safety software company based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Founded in 1975, InterAct is a major provider of public safety incident response software and public safety cloud technology. InterAct’s client base includes more than 1,450 clients in 44 states and across three continents.[2]

Products[edit]

InterAct products include computer aided dispatch, records management, mobile data, offender management, and the related technologies that support those functions. InterAct has pioneered developments in public safety cloud computing and data sharing.[3][4][5]

In 2012, InterAct announced the release of InterDEx, a next generation data sharing and agency interoperability platform.[6] This nationwide platform allows public safety professionals to communicate with each other and share data with other agencies in different jurisdictions.[7]

InterAct released SafeTown in 2012, an app that allows residents to track police and emergency responder activity in real-time and report suspicious activity.[8]

In 2013, the Mayor of Indianapolis, Greg Ballard, announced the city's rollout of SafeTown,[9] calling it "a great resource for people to stay informed and safe in Indianapolis."[10]

Partnerships[edit]

InterAct has partnered with Nlets, hosting their InterAct Records Management System (RMS) application in the Nlets data center.[11]
