Riverside makes IRT investment

The Riverside Company, a global private equity firm focused on the smaller end of the middle market, has invested in Incident Response Technologies, Inc (IRT), makers of the Rhodium Incident Management Suite, a provider of incident management solutions in North America. 

The investment is an add-on to Omnigo Software, a provider of public safety, incident and security management solutions for law enforcement, education, healthcare, public safety and other enterprises.

IRT’s software suite serves as a natural extension of Omnigo’s platform to help organisations pre-plan events, manage incidents in real-time and automate post-event incident command system (ICS) forms and submissions. IRT and Omnigo each serve a diverse range of end markets that are dedicated to community safety. The companies share a large number of overlapping customers, highlighting the power of the combined platform to improve operational efficiency, minimise risk and organise the entire safety and security management lifecycle, allowing institutions to focus on what they do best.

“We are excited to partner with the IRT team to enhance Omnigo’s mission-critical software capabilities,” says Riverside Managing Partner Loren Schlachet. “The partnership provides an attractive opportunity to create an integrated pre-planning, dispatch, incident management and records management system that will enable even more customers to seamlessly manage their entire safety infrastructure.”
