HxGN OnCall delivers cost-effective solutions with simplified administration.

"With HxGN OnCall, cities of all sizes have access to the most advanced public safety technologies available," said Kalyn Sims, CTO of Hexagon's Safety & Infrastructure division.

HxGN OnCall eliminates this difficult decision because it is one portfolio of solutions that serves the needs of all agencies. No longer are leading-edge capabilities reserved for bigger cities with large budgets. Now, smaller communities can take advantage of state-of-the-art technologies and enjoy greater safety and security."
