Tuesday 30 June 2020 – Field management experts Codea have announced membership of TCCA, the representative organisation that brings together the global critical communications ecosystem. Founded in 2008 and based in Finland, Codea’s advanced software is in use by rescue services, hospitals and private ambulance companies for the navigation and handling of emergency missions.
Systems provided by Codea have been installed for more than 400 mobile units throughout Finland. The company is the market leader and industry standard in Finland, and already in daily use by thousands of professionals, covering some 25,000 missions on monthly basis.
“We at Codea are pleased to join the group of professionals regarding critical communications,” said Timi Härkönen, Codea Project Manager. “We are looking forward for upcoming encounters with the specialists in the field. We also hope that we can, as market-leaders in Finland, offer something in return, too.”
“Efficient access to and management of critical information is crucial to the success of emergency responses, and Codea’s range of applications is supporting the first responders in Finland to help deliver the best possible outcomes,” said TCCA Chief Executive Tony Gray. “We are delighted to welcome the Codea team to TCCA and expect our wider membership and partners to benefit from their experience and expertise.”
Finland has long been the world’s leading provider of digital services in the area of public security and critical communication. We at Codea have also based our operations on this know-how, and we continually adopt the latest technology in developing our own services.
Codea is also developing and delivering a Common Field Command System (KEJO) for all Finnish Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) authorities together with Patria and Portalify. KEJO will be used by the Finnish Police, Rescue Departments, Social and Health Care authors, the Frontier Guard, the Defence Forces, the Customs and other authorities possibly joining in at a later stage.
