Motorola Solutions Presents Innovation Showcase to Enhance Safety and Trust at Africa Tech Festival 2022
Integrated, mission-critical ecosystem to take centre stage at South Africa’s largest technology summit
CAPE TOWN, South Africa – Nov. 8, 2022 - Motorola Solutions will demonstrate how its integrated ecosystem of technologies can help first responders in Sub-Saharan Africa to stay focused on the front line while enabling public safety agencies to build greater trust within the communities they serve.
The past two years have underscored the incredible challenges faced by emergency services and military organisations as they grapple with a rapidly changing safety and security landscape, new threats and a growing need to modernise their operations.
Uwe Niske, Motorola Solutions’ head of sales for Sub-Saharan Africa, said that the adoption of advanced technology combined with strong community engagement will help the region to realise its future vision for safety and prosperity.
“Public expectations about the use of technology to provide safety have never been greater, but agencies and government organisations still need to strike the right balance between using technology to keep people safe whilst also protecting their privacy,” Niske said.
“With access to technologies that provide resilient communication and convert data into actionable insights, public safety agencies can enhance responsiveness, improve services and gain more time for public engagement. Ultimately, this helps to build greater trust within the communities they serve.”
