IT hardware maker HCL Infosystems on Monday partnered ESi Acquisitions to distribute the US-based firm’s crisis information management software (CIMS) in the country.

The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to co-operate for joint initiatives and the partnership is expected to create new market opportunities and contribute to the expansion of the crisis management solution market in the country, HCL Infosystems said in a statement.

“We believe that there is a tremendous opportunity for both the companies to pursue in providing WebEOC software and services to government and private corporations,” ESi Acquisition Director Paul Butler said.

Introduced in 1998, WebEOC is an Internet-enabled and locally-configurable incident and event management system.

Using it, authorised executives and emergency managers can communicate and collaborate in managing daily operations and support emergency management functions.

WebEOC is currently installed in over 750 organisations globally in various languages.

“The partnership will further strengthen our portfolio and together, we will be able to achieve robust success and create new benchmarks in the Indian market,” HCL Infosystems President (Enterprise Solutions) Neeraj Jaitley said.
