IDV Solutions adds Alerting to Twitter Visualization for Visual Command Center®

Upgraded feature lets organizations get alerts for tweets about events and threats near their assets

Lansing, MI — September 29, 2014

IDV Solutions, LLC today announced the release of an upgraded Twitter visualization module for its market-leading enterprise risk visualization (ERV) software platform, Visual Command Center®. 

The new Twitter Visualization and Alerting module combines the real-time nature of social media with the power of geospatial visualization to provide early warning to organizations of potential threats to its people or operations. 

“Twitter is now where news breaks first, so it’s important to give our customers a tool for extracting information that’s important to them from the mass of tweets,” said Ian Clemens, Chief Technology Officer at IDV Solutions. “The upgraded module lets organizations tap Twitter for immediate information on a threat, giving them more time to take action to protect employees, assets and business continuity.”

The new module continuously monitors for any number and combination of words or phrases posted within a configurable distance from employees or facilities.  Alert notifications are displayed in Visual Command Center and can also be delivered via e-mail or mass notification systems.

Once alerted to a potential threat, Visual Command Center’s powerful visualization, filtering, and query tools support users as they assess the threat and act to mitigate risk. Visual Command Center unites activity and events from multiple data sources—including Web feeds, social media, travel tracking, and physical security systems—into one platform for risk awareness and response. It visualizes potential risks, including breaking news, weather, and natural disasters, on an interactive map and timeline, along with in-house data like asset locations, floor plans, and physical safety systems.

Twitter Visualization and Alerting is available as an add-on to Visual Command Center version 3.1 or later for both existing and new clients.  For more information, visit
