ResponseReady is Calian’s proprietary exercise design and control software. It enables effective management of all aspects of an exercise regardless of size, complexity, or geographic location.
It is used to build and manage basic tabletop exercises to large-scale, complex, multi-jurisdictional, multi-agency exercises, and essentially acts as a control center to house the injects, manage the timing and provide visual live indication of exercise status. As it is cloud-based, it also allows distributed exercise controllers to share a common operational status.
The built-in communications tools make it easy to make changes on the fly. The software enables us to add complexity to the exercise no matter the scale, resulting in a more realistic exercise environment. The exercise participant portal provides behind the scenes exercise control tools.
ResponseReady has the capacity to provide interactive social media input for senior management, response personnel and communications experts within your organization. The ability to provide real time two-way social media interaction is increasingly an essential element of all exercises. This is seamlessly integrated with the other components of ResponseReady.
Finally, ResponseReady can generate instant reports and returns based on the feedback from the exercise participants using is survey tool Live Poll. The questionnaire is built to reflect the objectives of the exercise and gather data on specific metrics selected by the client for each exercise.
