Rotterdam, September 17th, 2020 – Response Simulator and INTER Forward Solutions – two leading companies in innovative solutions are excited to announce a strategic partnership to maximise training potential in a (CCTV) Control Room. The new alliance will provide safety and security professionals with immersive learning possibilities and preparedness in an efficient manner.


INTER’s Control Room solution is at the heart of a critical organisational process, providing video surveillance, fire control, and access control for safety and security operators. Based on the complete and accurate information and communication tools, operators can make the right decisions faster and more efficiently idangerous situations where seconds count. INTER’s partnership with the virtual training platform Response Simulator will allow users to better identify unexpected and complex situations before these situations happen in real life. After conducting training in the virtual worldoperators will be able to enhance their skills and carry out their daily work with more confidence. Using Response Simulator, operators can train for:

  • Enhancing situational awareness
  • Developing emergency decision making (EDM)
  • Building a common operational picture
  • Command and control coordination
  • And more…

Response Simulator’s user-friendly and immersive virtual training platform combined with INTER’s optimised security solution will benefit customers of both companies and set high training standards for personnel of safety and security organisations. The result of this strategic partnership is a powerful joint solution that maximises users’ training capabilities and brings these key benefits:

  • Operators improve their response to various unexpected scenarios
  • New control room operators will become fully operational much quicker
  • Establish high quality and consistency in behavioural safety procedures and competency evaluation

The solution will be available via our partner INTERperfectly compatible with all existing INTER workstations. By connecting Response Simulator to the network of the existing hardware, users will be able to switch from live control view to virtual training in no time.
