We’ve been doing this for 30 years at Xybix. Does that make me feel old? Why yes, yes it does. It also makes me feel wise because I’ve learned a lot about ergonomic sit-to-stand consoles and how they enhance the health, happiness and productivity of dispatchers, who are literally the first responders to calls for help. I’ve learned what’s important to 911 centers in terms of features, quality and service. And I know how much that all costs.
Ready to get Back in Black? If your tax base and funding took a hit during the pandemic—stalling much-needed projects—you may be in luck. The $1.9 trillion stimulus package passed in March includes $350 billion in pandemic recovery funds for state and local governments. According to the spending guidelines, upgrades to emergency dispatch center, command & control centers and healthcare environments likely qualify for these funds.
Xybix helped City of Cullman dispatchers introduce the promise of modern dispatch consoles to city leaders. The dispatchers can prove the consoles are worth the investment as plans for a new center has been discussed.
As a family business, Xybix is all about building relationships. Such was the case with Cullman, Alabama, and the emergency dispatch center’s need for a single console. With future growth plans on the horizon, the city was looking at a limited budget for an interim upgrade to accommodate additional call volumes and new equipment.
Remember way back in 2016 when the iPhone discontinued the headphone jack? “Wires are so over,” it seemed to pronounce to all of us busy untangling those white headphone wires. “Wireless is the future.”

“Because every day is Children’s Day!”
That’s what parents say when kids ask, “Why is there Mother’s Day and Father’s Day but no Children’s Day.”
Since 1970, we’ve also had Earth’s Day, every April 22, to demonstrate support for protecting the environment. The big question here is this: “Why isn’t every day Earth Day?” I mean, we all have to live here, Elon Musk nonwithstanding.
See how Xybix helped Lafayette Parish create the best environment, accommodate the best equipment and provide the best consoles for their greatest asset—the 911 operators who help keep their community safe.
