“We are excited to partner with Bain Capital as we continue to advance our mission of relentlessly improving the mission-critical technology of public safety to better inform incident response, and citizen and first responder safety,” said Tony Eales, President and CEO of TriTech Software Systems. “Bain Capital has a long history of supporting technology and software companies in accelerating their growth. Their commitment to our vision underscores the strength of our differentiated products and the potential to further extend the range of public safety solutions we offer to serve our customers.”
