Preparing for the Future of Public Safety: Think Cloud

Agencies used to purchase separate systems like CAD, Digital Evidence, eWarrants, eCitations etc. Then IT departments would need to setup Servers, Backup and Networks to make these run. Users would then train in all these programs and still have to enter data multiple times.

A TRUE Public Safety CLOUD changes all this.

There is a single system, where data is entered only once. Users train easily and since there are no servers or IT infrastructure, costs are greatly reduced.

Solution: ONE Single Cloud Platform

True efficiency and streamlined operations are possible when agencies use a single platform that can handle all departments using simplified Cloud technology.

Below are some key advantages of Cloud:

  • Real-time Data Sharing: With Cloud-based systems, first responders have immediate access to the intel needed to prevent, respond to, manage, and analyze situations in real-time. With platforms like 365™, data entered into one app – like RMS, for example – is immediately shared across CAD, JMS, etc.  Data can be securely accessed from phones, PCs, or MDTs. True Cloud platforms can also be used when offline or out of network range.
  • Better data security: Cloud based systems offer better data security measures than non-cloud-based systems and decrease the risk of cyber-attacks. Cloud platforms adhere to strict FBI-CJIS requirements for their physical servers, networks, and employee security and have world-class security experts to manage these systems.
  • Rapid deployment: Faster, smoother implementations are another benefit of Cloud. Cloud Systems can be implemented in weeks rather than the months or years it often takes to roll-out other software.
  • Reduce operational costs: There are significantly higher costs associated with CAD/RMS/etc. systems that are not cloud based. The initial setup alone for these systems can cost around $800,000 for a small agency of 50 officers. Even the annual support and maintenance contract for this kind of setup will cost around $100,000. It’s an unnecessarily huge investment for technology that is typically outdated in 2-5 years.

Cloud based systems are more affordable with little to no upfront investment required. Agencies opting for cloud-based systems also get the latest updates and better data security at no extra cost.

Ready to start leveraging the power of Cloud?

365™ is the end-to-end Cloud platform for Law Enforcement Agencies. It brings together cloud and smart devices with the power of AI to simplify reporting, protect officers, and help prevent & solve crime. Plus, the software uses common sense so that no data ever has to be entered twice, not even passwords.
