Tyler, TX, May 1, 2020: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for alternative means of funding for Public Safety agencies. The Genesis Group today announced the launch of their Grant Assistance Program, offering free grant services for those agencies. Genesis has partnered with Lexipol, a leading provider of policy and training solutions for fire and rescue, corrections, and law enforcement to deliver these services. The Genesis Grant Assistance Program provides support to find and apply for grants with the help of expert coaching throughout the entire process.
“We understand that navigating through the grant application process is challenging and time-consuming and that our customers might not have the resources to dedicate to finding grant money in the current environment,” says Jim Nipp, President of The Genesis Group. “We’re pleased to provide these agencies with the option to lean on Genesis for free grant assistance services during these trying times.”
Since we launched our monthly series of webinars, our mission has always been to provide our valued customers with “in demand” content that brings awareness to, increases usage of, and most importantly maintains a high return on investment from the GenWatch3 software. With that said, we are going to cancel our December session in order to review what worked and what can improve so we kick off 2020 strong!
Thank you for your participation and support of these webinars over the past year. From the entire Genesis Family to yours, we hope you have a happy and healthy holiday season!Read more
There is so much the GenWatch3 software can do, it’s no wonder some functionality might fall under the radar. We will cover a few of these “underutilized” enhancements; some of which can integrate with existing applications to share information with other applications and/or the radio system. These features might even reduce the need for application upgrades. Please join us so we can introduce you to these small, yet mighty, solutions!
Did you know GenWatch3 offers multiple data management options for Member Agencies? Whether information is filtered on an agency’s behalf, or the preference is to manage, monitor and report on the data themselves, GenWatch3 provides the flexibility all organizations desire. It’s just one of the many values our software provides to our customers! Please join us on October 11th to learn more, and we might even throw in a little something for our Over the Air (OTA) users as well.

Your organization just upgraded your GenWatch3 ATIA software, and now has access to iVista. The only problem is, you aren’t sure what iVista is or how it can be used to monitor and manage your radio network. Well…you are not alone, which is why the topic for May’s Sync Call is completely centered around our iVista browser-delivered solution. We will focus on all elements of the software including its Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Dashboard, Map Displays and Reporting capabilities.

Smith County, Texas — The Smith County Commissioners Court on August 14, approved new dispatch software that could be a “game changer” for emergency responders.
Chad Richey, product manager for Genesis PULSE, said it is a web-based, decision support software for emergency call centers. The program is designed to simplify the dispatch process, meaning faster response times for citizens who need assistance.
“It is a difference maker for 9-1-1 personnel and emergency response,” he said.
Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders from all over the East Texas area came together to support the 2017 East Texas Regional Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #51 Blue Santa Shopping Spree. Area police officers nominated children they had met in the community who were underprivileged, child victims, or witnesses to crimes to participate in the Blue Santa program. Over 100 children were paired with a Police Officer and were given a $100 Walmart gift card to shop for anything they wanted. It’s a humbling experience when you hear an officer tell a child they have $100 to spend on anything they want and the child leads them by the hand to the food aisle.
Genesis has built a business for 25+ years by putting First Responders first. We are so proud to support the ETFOP as they are truly putting their hearts into serving our community, making it not just a safer place to live but a better community to live in.
