SAGA is multiservice and can manage Police, Civil Defence and Ambulances, in multiservice on the same system. This can be made on workstation level or at incident type.
SAGA user interfaces are flexible and modular. They are defined outside the application, in a profile register. Profiles number is not limited and user interfaces can be adapted by systems engineer.
SAGA supports all types of fixed and mobile workstations: Multi-screens PC, laptops, PC tablets and Smartphones.

SAGA has several sizes of application servers. The biggest is able to support over 30’000 clients and can start 3’000 simultaneously.
SAGA can be virtualised and uses load balancing and software fault tolerance between the application servers. If one of them falls, all workstations will automatically be connected to other application servers, without any information loss.
SAGA application servers can be increased in real time. If more power is necessary, it is easy to add one or more servers, without disturbing operators. Load balancing will distribute them on available servers. It is the same for updates, which can be carried out in a sequential way, without disturbing users.
SAGA client is vector based. WPF and HTML5 allow adapting user interface size to reading capacities of each one.
SAGA is developed to satisfy all types of desired architecture: centralized, distributed and even cloud. Architecture is defined by network capacities, databases specificities and communication interfaces to be integrated.
