The ChallengeBasel, Switzerland, faced the great challenge of hosting the 2016 UEFA Europa League final, which attracted nearly 38,000 enthusiastic soccer fans to the city. Preparing for and coordinating public safety operations during such an event requires a large number of personnel, specialized equipment, and complex processes.
To ensure public safety and smooth workflows before, during, and after the match and related festivities, the Basel-Stadt Cantonal Police decided to upgrade its major event management capabilities. The agency needed a comprehensive solution for planning potential scenarios, centralizing all event details, and sharing information with its dispatch system.

With the solution, the cantonal police prepared for the event by taking into account different planning scenarios and anticipating various decisions and measures. This drastically simplified personnel and unit planning, alleviating the burden of operational leadership throughout the event.
