MARVLIS User Group

For the last three years, BCS has held an annual gathering for MARVLIS Users in conjunction with the Pinnacle EMS conference. The first meeting was held in Colorado Springs during 2012 and was attended by representatives from several agencies employing the technology. Each of them was given the opportunity to share their experiences with the software suite and provide suggestions for improvements to the software as it continues to evolve. The next year’s meeting was held at the Omni Plantation on Amelia Island in Florida. Since that venue was much closer to the BCS offices in South Carolina, it allowed for more participation from the MARVLIS development and support staff. They were able to report on the progress from previous input in addition to having more extensive interaction with clients and others interested in implementing MARVLIS. The most recent event was held this past summer in Phoenix.  This gathering changed the format somewhat from a traditional meeting to a more informal sharing over dinner and drinks. Regardless of how the communication happens, BCS is keenly interested in the ideas and experiences users have with MARVLIS as a tool to improve their EMS performance. Visit this page again for plans on our next event to be held in the summer of 2015.

BCS believes strongly in the notion that EMS performance is not based solely on any software product, but understands the vital role MARVLIS plays in the overall dynamics that do measure and improve performance. It is that belief in the value of sharing thoughts and ideas around the largely set of topics that contribute to success that lead to their support of this website and the entire High Performance EMS community building efforts.  The success of BCS is directly tied to the success of each and every customer. By making the whole community stronger and better informed, we all succeed.

    Will Marvlis run on iPads/iPhones and droid smart phones? We are a volunteer FD and EMS service and the county we are in operates on MARVLIS. We work with the county but do not have the MARVLIS system.

    Yes, the MARVLIS Client for use in vehicles currently runs on either Windows or iOS devices. Android is on the roadmap for future development so it is coming but not available yet. If the county already has the servers set up, connecting additional vehicles from other county services would be a minimal cost. Contact me at dloberger@bcs-gis.com for more details.
