A rapid response to accidents and other dangerous situations can be a matter of life or death.

Wacom technologies help accelerate the processes that support emergency service professionals.

Enable rapid emergency response


When you’re trying to save lives, every second counts. Emergency response command centers need ways of accelerating the relay of vital information to resources in the field. Wacom solutions for government and the public sector help by:

  • Enabling users to enter crucial data more quickly using a Wacom digital pen display.
  • Allowing staff to easily add electronic handwritten drawings and notes to help explain the specific details of emergency situations.
  • Ensuring reliability thanks to Wacom’s patented battery-free and wireless pen design, and scratch-resistant pen display surfaces.
  • Connecting the pen display to any existing computer system, so that it operates just like an external monitor.

Process Approvals

Powered by Wacom

It’s often the internal approval of decisions that slow processes down, not the processes themselves.

Wacom technologies help remove approval bottlenecks.

Accelerate process approval


Paper-based processes that require in-person approvals slow down citizen service delivery. Using Wacom solutions for the public sector helps mitigate this by:

  • Enabling government staff to complete forms faster digitally.
  • Removing the cost of paper management, storage and secure disposal from the process chain.
  • Ensuring staff can work using the same applications they have always used.
  • Making it easy, fast and comfortable to complete repetitive document-oriented tasks.
