Effective communication saves lives

For the last 20 years, the members of the Answersmith team have been committed to developing communication platforms that provide timely and carefully managed access to information from multiple sources. During this time, we’ve become specialists in handling communications from remote locations and synchronizing communication between the field and the central office. Our technology is also ideally suited for intra-team communication, especially under field conditions.

The company is led by Alexander Caskey, formerly with Microsoft Research, Wildfire, and Cisco. He heads a team with strong expertise in database design, mobile telephony, user interface design, speech recognition, and natural language processing.

As a former international volunteer (Brazil, Mexico, Honduras) and a software architect, he saw the promise of technology in helping to facilitate communications in emergency relief situations where effective crisis response depends providing the right information to the right people at the right time.

"Only through open information sharing and dialogue at all levels can challenges be overcome, trust gained and epidemics as devastating as Ebola be stopped."
