Nationwide Fire Sprinklers can now manage their devices remotely and receive alerts with a bespoke CGI solution.

Nationwide Fire Sprinklers (NFS) provides installation and servicing of sprinkler systems throughout the UK and Ireland. Embedded in every new system is a SIM card that maintains constant communication with head office.

This ground-breaking service was originally managed using smartphones, but as more and more systems were added that quickly became unmanageable, and CGI was called in to develop a web-based management platform.

The system developed by CGI manages all communication with the sprinklers and presents it in an easy-to-use browser interface with all devices shown on a map.

If any sprinkler is activated, an alarm is sounded at head office and tenant, landlord and NFS emergency engineers are all sent an instant text message.
