6 Reasons ProQA is Your Go-To Calltaking Software
Smart DLS Links
Emergency dispatchers can now save time and improve accuracy, in essence, become “smarter” when moving to vital Pre-Arrival Instructions. After PDIs, ProQA now highlights a logically suggested DLS Link to the most-appropriate PAI based on the information gathered.
Smart AI sections
ProQA now delivers even greater accuracy while saving time during Key Questioning. Relevant AI, definitions, and lists, are automatically selected and appear highlighted in pink at the top of the AI window. Emergency dispatchers can scan the pertinent AIs at a glance without scrolling and searching, moving more quickly to DLS—again working “smarter.” (Currently in Medical and Police)
