Global Relief Technologies Named May “Innovation Rocks!” Award Winner
PORTSMOUTH– Coordinating communication processes from Asia to Afghanistan has led to Global Relief Technologies (GRT) being named the “Innovation Rocks!” award winner by the New Hampshire Business Resource Center for the month of May.
The Portsmouth-based company, the brainchild of Michael Gray, a former U.S. Department of State official who once served as a refugee officer in Macedonia and Albania, assists emergency responders, humanitarian and reconstruction communities by facilitating the collection of critical data from remote locations via a secure, integrated solution that provides for more effective evaluation and response to crisis situations.
GRT’s products and services enable field service professionals located anywhere in the world to collect data, mapping and other mission critical information and transmit that information to headquarters for evaluation and action, all on a secure basis. GRT’s products have been used in relief efforts associated with Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita and are currently being used to map the extent of the avian flu in Southeast Asia.
“Ensuring the success of humanitarian efforts requires innovative thinking and the utilization of the latest technologies,” said New Hampshire Business Resource Center Director Roy Duddy. “Global Relief Technologies has set the standard for developing communications strategies that provide immediate response in critical situations. This is a company that is truly saving lives.”
