RapidDeploy, a cloud-based computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and analytics platform, last week announced the completion of a $29 million Series B funding round led by Morpheus Ventures with participation from Ericsson Ventures, Samsung Next Ventures, and others. 

RapidDeploy will use the capital to fund go-to-market improvements and research and development. “RapidDeploy has entered a stage of hypergrowth, and with the trust of major companies in public safety and telecommunications like Samsung and Ericsson we are well-positioned to assist public safety officials across the country as they transform their 911 centers,” said Steve Raucher, CEO and co-founder of RapidDeploy. 

“Over the last two years, we have fulfilled statewide contracts in Arizona, California, and Kansas, while implementing our platform in over 650 911 Centers across America. This investment allows us to continue our trajectory and make data-driven Unified Critical Response the industry standard.”  

Since the National Emergency Number Association set its initial goals for Next-Gen 911 services in 2001, states have slowly adopted a new system of emergency services IP networks, software services and data management processes connected directly to equipment in the public safety answering points. RapidDeploy’s products, including RadiusPlus, Eclipse Analytics and Nimbus CAD, represent a major step forward for local, regional and state governments. 

“The future of emergency services is in data, which creates a faster, more responsive 911 center,” said Mark Dyne, Founding Partner at Morpheus Ventures, who just recently joined the RapidDeploy Board of Directors. “We believe that the platform RapidDeploy has built provides the necessary breadth of capabilities that make the dream of Next-Gen 911 service a reality for rural and metropolitan communities across the nation and are excited to be investing in this future with Steve and his team.”
