After our CPO, Peter Quintas, navigated through a few startups, he became part of a group that acquired a public safety technology company. After spending a few years working on that project, he rejoined the space nearly a dozen years later, knowing that law enforcement and first responders were underserved due to aging technology and legacy vendors. He and his co-founder, Nick Stohlman, realized public safety deserved better.
The pairing of Peter and Nick’s experience was the perfect backdrop for bringing forth necessary modernization within public safety. They formed a friendship, mission, and business and remain determined never to stop until the task is complete.
Our platform evolved into what it is today with a collaborative approach with those who understand it best; our public safety partners. We partnered with four large agencies of varying types (state, county, local, and campus) to ensure our system could withstand serving all types. Coincidentally this had much broader implications rooting back to our country’s founding. The 10th Amendment says that the federal government only has those powers delegated in the Constitution – if it isn’t listed, it belongs to the states or the people. This created a divergent and complex set of requirements to support the nuances of state and local laws that we firmly believe the SOMA Platform solves.
So we made it our mission to bring modernization in a more configurable, accessible, and cost-effective way.
