Winnipeg, MB, Canada, Nov 29, 2023 - A technician who provides IT support to Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) 9-1-1 call centre has been named technician of the year by an international telecommunications company.
Last month, Robert Kubisch was given the award by NICE Systems. Every year, the company honours people who work in public safety emergency communications.
"It’s a real honour to receive this award. I’m really grateful for the nomination," said Kubisch, a Public Safety Answering Point Information System Specialist at an award ceremony in October.
Kubisch is responsible for the maintenance, support, and operation of all information systems and technology needed in 9-1-1 and public safety services within the WPS.
"People like Robert allow us to take calls from people in life or death situations. It’s a critical service for residents, and technicians help keep it all running smoothly," said Insp. Gord Spado, who oversees the communications centre.
Colleagues say Kubisch goes above and beyond.
"It’s common for Robert to also put the members of the communication centre first. Robert always vocalizes compassion for his colleagues, recognizing their difficult jobs, and going out of his way to ensure technology supports them in their work," Kubisch’s colleague Stacey Cann said in her award nomination.
"I'm so happy to see him recognized in this fashion," she added.

Virtual Phone Numbers (DID) and Business VoIP Phone Service
Whether a customer is running a Call Center business, an IVR system to take phone orders or a voice mail service bureau, he still needs inbound lines and access numbers (DIDs). These lines and DIDs give customers the ability to call in and use the service. Traditionally, these lines and DIDs were obtained through the local telephone company (i.e. Verizon, AT&T or Time Warner) and a company could only purchase numbers with area codes in the region the system resided. With VoIP, this has changed.
