BlueLine Grid, a leading developer of critical communications technology, announced today the “Grid bot” for Cisco’s Spark platform. The new technology is a first-of-its-kind connector which links all other communication channels – such as SMS, email, Skype, Slack, and mass conference calling – all from within Cisco’s Spark collaboration platform.
The Grid bot is based on BlueLine Grid’s proprietary “Promontory” platform, named for the Utah summit where the golden spike connected the Transcontinental Railroad.
The technology is being marketed as a service extension to Cisco Spark. The initial use case involves connecting silos between government agencies and corporations to advance public safety and emergency communications.
In a joint statement, BlueLine Grid founders Jack Weiss and Dave Riker said, “BlueLine’ Grid’s Promontory technology provides first-of-its-kind interoperability between collaboration platforms, and we are proud that our first release is with our partners at Cisco. We are enthusiastic to expand Spark’s collaboration toolbox to include mass notification, conference calling, location tracking and cross-platform collaboration with communities outside of Spark.”
