As a non-profit organisation with a community purpose BIG has been for years developing smart tools to provide first responders in the heat of the moment with accurate and to the point information. The update of the Kaleidos Phone, the launch of the Kaleidos Mobile and the initiation of Kaleidos Online demonstrate that BIG is highly wagering on the new media.
