EPIC Apps leverage applications already used within the humanitarian community and integrates them into the programme to provide you with common, inter-agency tools.

EPIC Unified Communications integrates existing and new communications devices and services with other EPIC solutions enabling seamless communication and supporting safety among humanitarian workers. 

With EPIC, the world is at your fingertips. EPIC Interact enables you to integrate, display and engage with Portal information on various touch-screen devices. EPIC Interact also allows multiple users to operate the system and provide updates at the same time.
