How Visual Command Center Works

Leveraging a single, unified, and integrated view for managing and responding to enterprise risk, Visual Command Center enables enterprises to can gain situational awareness and risk resilience on an unprecedented scale. Through real-time threat intelligence, situational awareness, and integrated response and collaboration across the enterprise, security and risk professionals can better mitigate or eliminate the impact of critical events to their organization. These critical events can span across multiple use cases such as Life Safety & Security, Business Continuity, and Supply Chain Management.

Visual Command Center serves as the visualization and orchestration engine for the Everbridge Critical Event Management Platform streamlining the steps of Assess, Locate, Act, and Analyze, thereby enabling organizations to better manage operational risk.

How Visual Command Center Works

Operator Console

Visual Command Center brings together data about your organizational assets (employees, travelers, buildings, supply chain, etc.) and risk events (crime, terrorism, natural disasters, weather, health risks, activism, etc.) which it gets from public, proprietary and partner data sources into a highly visual common operating view.  Visual Command Center then correlates those risk events to your assets through its Intelligent Alerting™ to identify critical events that could threaten your organization.  Then using built-in assessment data and tools, you can quickly assess threats to determine the appropriate action to take and execute this action directly from the platform, thereby saving valuable time in execution.  This time saved can help mitigate or even eliminate the impact of that critical event.

Integrated Asset, Threat and Contextual Data from Multiple Sources

Visual Command Center includes risk intelligence data from over 100 different sources to provide a comprehensive view of risk.  Some of these types include:

  • Asset data from corporate Asset Management or HR Systems
  • Integration with Safety Connection providing travel data and access control and badging information to understand an employee’s dynamic location during a critical event
  • Weather and natural disaster data from sources including the National Weather Service, GDACS, USGS and more
  • Threat data from our 24×7 Global Intelligence Operations Center (GIOC)
  • Law enforcement and crime data from the Everbridge Nixle Network
  • Risk event data from trusted partners like International SOS, Dataminr, NC4, and Anvil
  • Traffic and traffic camera data
  • Weather radar and forecast data from The Weather Company
  • Ability to add KML/KMZ layers on-the-fly from trusted sources
  • Operator-entered risk events



Visual Command Center Channels are designed to deliver the right information to the right people during a critical event or when your organization needs to understand the current risk environment.  Channels can be broadcast on your command center video wall or on a mobile device or computer screen for stakeholders that are not in the command center or for organizations that have more of a “virtual” command center. Channels are organized into the following categories:

  • Aerial Map Channel
  • Alerts Channel (Summary and Detail)
  • Assets Channel
  • Grid Map Channel
  • Incident Communications Channel
  • Montage Channel
  • Peroptics Channel
  • Status Board Channel
