BART System Management’s Coming!

Attention all BART users:

Emerg are about to release a new system management platform that will replace the current BART live feed. You will be given access to a range of great new features, whilst still having access to the same live feed that you know and love.

The update will happen tomorrow morning, the 6th of August where the live feed won’t be accessible for a short amount of time. If you stay checked into Facebook, we will be providing updates when access stops and also when the feed is back up again.

This system management update is a prelude to the huge update that’s set to be released for the BART app later this week, so make sure you check back here soon for details!

New BART – Sneak Peek

BART’s most exciting update since it’s inception is on it’s way.

What you can expect to see:

• Ability to be a member of multiple Groups
• Invite members to your group
• Individual notification settings for each capcode
• More control over member and group access
• New Menu structure for easier navigation

What this will mean for you:

• Multi-agency members such as those who are members of both the CFA & SES will be able to be part of both groups; with the ability to see messages, chat & availability for both groups.
• Administrators will have the ability to invite users already using BART in another group to their own group, and users will be able to request membership of existing groups.
• Clearly defined menu items which will make it easier for you to navigate the important features within BART.
• Simpler, less confusing, more accurate options within BART Administration, allowing users to specify exactly what capcodes and type of notifications each of their members see.

Our continued growth and increased exposure has led to the point where we’ve been able to implement these features, as always thank you for your support and keep it coming.

The much anticipated new version of BART for Windows Phone 8 has now arrived. It now includes all the features of the iOS & Android versions.

Due to the huge leap forward this App has undergone, the normal update process seems to be unreliable, please delete the old version from your phone and freshly install the new Version of BART to ensure it works correctly.
