HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --New Zealand Police are
deploying smartphones and tablets featuring Intergraph^® technology to more
than 6,000 frontline officers. In announcing the initiative, Prime Minister
John Key said the mobile technologies would help police "access vital
information that will help them prevent crime, catch criminals and protect New
Linked to Intergraph's industry-leading computer-aided dispatch software
(I/CAD), Intergraph's new Mobile Responder app will help New Zealand field
officers use smartphones to access critical information required for more
informed decision-making. Based on an initial pilot project, New Zealand
Police estimate the mobile technologies will enable officers to spend more
time in the field, reduce significant amounts of paperwork and increase
productivity by 30 minutes per shift, amounting to 520,000 hours each year or
$304.8 million (NZD) in productivity savings over 12 years.
New Zealand Police will also further deploy Intergraph's GeoMedia® Smart
Client software. GeoMedia Smart Client integrates data from police
communications centers into near real-time interactive maps, displaying
information required by officers on and off field. The system stores current
and historic event reports and acts as a key planning and decision-making
tool. Intergraph developed the GeoMedia Smart Client-enabled solution in
collaboration with the Communications Centres Intelligence Unit (CCIU) at
Police National Headquarters, Wellington.
"This further enhances our highly valued and strategic partnership with
Intergraph and we look forward to working more closely together with them as
an integral member of our new Mobile Development Centre," said Stephen
Crombie, chief information officer for the New Zealand Police.
"Public safety agencies need real-time information in the field to make
smarter decisions that save lives," said John Graham, president of Intergraph
Security, Government & Infrastructure. "Through the use of our CAD, mobile and
mapping technologies, we're proud to support this forward-thinking effort by
New Zealand Police."
