While ELERTS is well known for our work with innovative transits in North America – including Atlanta’s MARTA, Boston’s MBTA, Dallas’ DART, Sacramento’s SACRT, San Francisco’s BART, Toronto’s TTC and many more – protecting transits is not all that we do! We also provide mobile crowdsourcing safety solutions that help protect schools, corporations and healthcare facilities. And now, we are extending our See Something Say Something solution to help airport security have thousands of more eyes and ears watching for trouble. As part of that mission, we are proud to announce our membership in Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA), recognized as the authoritative voice of airports worldwide. ACI-NA airport members enplane 95 percent of all domestic and virtually all the international airline passenger and air cargo traffic in North America.
As an ACI member, ELERTS joins the impressive number of businesses that provide products and services to all segments of the air transportation industry. Through the exchange of information and business opportunities, ELERTS is making its solution and expertise available to the ACI-NA and its airport members.
At ELERTS, our mission is to make it easy to crowdsource incident reporting for safety and security concerns. As we all know, terrorist attacks and lesser crimes can happen anywhere there are large crowds – on buses and trains, in airports and schools, corporate workplaces and concerts, even seemingly benign events like the Boston Marathon. The fact of the matter is that part of the problem – large crowds – is also a key part of the ideal solution: crowdsourcing. ELERTS is focused on enabling crowds to become a part of public safety by putting easy-to-use incident reporting apps in the hands of citizens and employees. Now, that includes helping to protect the public traveling through one of the thousands of airports each day. We look forward to furthering ACI-NA’s mission to advocate policies and provide services that strengthen the ability of airports to serve their passengers, customers and communities.
