Colchester, United Kingdom, January 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- With the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics taking place on their doorstep, MMC and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Europe Limited, have come together with Vocal (the creators of iModus) to form the Tower Place Messaging Group.
Ian Fatt of MMC and Stuart Holman, of Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Europe Limited identified the need for a local neighbourhood information exchange service between security organisations, “iModus seemed the obvious tool and Vocal couldn't have been more supportive. I believe this will prove to be an invaluable asset, not only during the Olympics, but as a security tool we will continue to utilise for a very long time, this will be our legacy,” commented Ian Fatt.
The overall aim of the group is to act as a local information exchange service about all events that may impact businesses in the EC3R geographic area. With the Olympic preliminary, pre-event and post event activities taking place over a period of more than two months, businesses operating in the London area will need to stay up to date in order to ensure business continuity throughout the Games.
The group shares information generated by the Olympic organisers – notably the information about travel generated by the Olympic Route Network and Paralympics Route Network (ORN/PRN) – to keep everyone in the group informed of incidents, disruptions and hold ups in the EC3 area.
“The flexibility of the iModus system allows us to channel a wide variety of information to carefully targeted recipients. It’s great when our clients see the potential and ask us for what they want – and, of course, we’re always delighted to help them,” comments Trevor Wheatley-Perry, Director of Vocal.
