Embarking on its fourth year of business, Valkyrie empowers organizations of all sizes and industries to optimize efficiency and inform complex decisions through custom machine learning solutions. Valkyrie has worked with a wide range of organizations that span sectors from finance, healthcare, transportation, defense and intelligence. Notably in the second quarter, the company partnered with Global Medical Response (GMR), an emergency medical response company that provides critical transportation assistance for urgent medical situations. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Valkyrie has combined public and internal data to create a custom, rolling 10-day forecast for GMR’s crew and team members to provide informed and real-time insight on executive-level decisions.
“During this unprecedented worldwide event, with rapidly evolving data and information, GMR needed a trusted, agile and connected partner to keep our entire organization informed and prepared to develop appropriate preparation and response strategies for the communities we serve,” said GMR CEO Randy Owen. “Valkyrie’s unique capabilities and custom solutions have equipped our team with advanced abilities to predictively measure critical customer needs, ensuring we can respond at a moment’s notice. These tools inform resource allocation projections for equipment and crew that display not only regions that are experiencing spikes in emergency calls, but also demographics and populations at risk.”
