Why nSide?

The University of Miami’s’ Emergency Management Director, Scott Burnotes had a vision of being able to view all 250 buildings on UM’s campus and all emergency/critical assets from the privacy of his office.

nSide was the answer to Scott’s vision. In addition, nSide’s ease of use, and ease of collecting new and updated data is so easy, his staff was able to handle this work themselves. Scott and his staff were able to be trained in less than 2 hours. Then they were off an running. The nSide team loaded all the floor plans from pdfs for all buildings and all floors so Scott’s team could visit each building and capture all the data at their pace.

“I had been thinking about this type of solution (nSide) for a long time, and here it is! The fact that it’s so easy to use, learn and collect data, makes this perfect for the University of Miami. I see nSide having a huge positive impact on our abilities to better protect our students and respond to all types of emergencies!”
