WHO WE ARE
AND WHAT WE DO IS INSPIRED BY YOU.
Our mission is to improve response times and emergency outcomes by building technology that empowers first responders to work faster, smoother, and smarter.
Bryx was founded by David Thomas, a Rochester, NY native. Prior to starting Bryx, Dave worked at Intel Capital and spent years working in silicon valley. At Intel, he led numerous investments in companies with innovative technologies and experienced the impact of technological advancement across various industries. Inspired and motivated, he gathered a team of engineers from RIT to bring innovation to the public safety market.
In 2014, our small but powerful team launched our first public safety product, the Bryx 911 mobile application. One of our first customers who relied heavily on the app was Detroit Fire Department. At the time, Detroit was facing bankruptcy and preparing for the infamously known Devil’s Night—a night of widespread arson throughout Detroit. In response to a viral video showing Detroit firefighters being “alerted” by faxed documents tipping over soda cans, Dave reached out to the city and provided the Bryx 911 app for free. After experiencing and the speed and reliability of Bryx 911, the department quickly became the first of many customers of our second public safety product, the Bryx Station alerting system.
What started as a small team of engineers from RIT, Bryx has grown into a next-century technology company empowering first responders, reducing response times, and improving emergency outcomes across the globe.
The Bryx platform is a fully integrated, end-to-end, cloud-based platform designed to aid in emergency response. We use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies and cloud storage platforms to keep costs down and ensure maximum reliability and security. Our Bryx 911 mobile app and Bryx Station alerting system work seamlessly together to provide first responders with rich, real-time information and direct messaging tools.
