PPM 2000 and Guardly announce improved real-time data systems integration for monitoring and responding to active threats
PPM 2000 and Guardly today announced an updated integration between Perspective V.4.0 by PPM and Guardly Command that provides command center operators with more actionable data in the first few seconds of an emergency event and real-time communication tools that enhance information gathering from emergency callers by operators.
This improved situational awareness allows operators to make key decisions faster and more effectively, better manage resources and assets, and ultimately improve business resiliency and risk mitigation for their customers.
“The new addition to our V.4.0 release adds a level of integration that allows for complete interaction and true situational awareness from a Guardly-triggered inbound emergency alert,” says Brian McIlravey, CPP, Co-CEO of PPM. “Any notes added by command center personnel in either system during an event are automatically synced, so no matter what interface you are in, you have the most up-to-date information. This is the way command center apps are meant to work together.”
PPM and Guardly also announced today the release of their new whitepaper entitled “How Smartphones Enhance Real-Time Threat Assessment.” The whitepaper provides a primer for the evolution of smartphones, threat assessment, and how vendor systems can work together synergistically to provide enhanced value to end-users.

The integration between PPM and Guardly represents one of the first commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) integrations directly linking a leading Incident Management system with mobile safety apps designed for enterprise-wide distribution and scale. When configured for a customer, Guardly-initiated alerts trigger pre-categorized alerts in Perspective’s dispatching component for easy discovery, review, and action. Over the course of the incident, all data captured in the Guardly system—such as real-time GPS and indoor location updates, instant message communications, and private notes recorded by operators—will be synchronized with Perspective for future incident investigation and analysis.
“The value of our work relies on how beneficial our products and services are for our customers,” says Josh Sookman, Guardly founder and chief executive officer. “Our technology partnership with PPM enhances our capabilities for helping customers to protect those in their duty of care and recognize and respond to threats faster, and more appropriately. This common vision will also help our customers to maximize the value of their current investments in infrastructure.”
