EXTENDING YOUR SUNGARD APPLICATIONS TO MOBLE COMPUTING! (Course Code: TPA604)
Mobile Computing/Bar Coding interfaces for SunGard Applications provide municipalities with the tools needed to streamline operations, eliminate redundant recording / keying of information, increase accuracy and improve efficiency. Our QUICK® mobile interfaces utilize SOA.NET technology to enable workers to manage inventory, track assets, report fleet labor, track evidence and property or report activity against work orders. Best of all, they offer complete wireless freedom & flexibility. You can work in the office or warehouse over a wireless local area network (WLAN) or on the road over a wireless wide area network (WWAN)... You can even work out of range of any network in offline mode! Attend this session to learn how dozens of municipalities are reaping the benefits of mobile computing & bar coding!
LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITION (LPR) SOLUTIONS (Course Code: TPA602)
License Plate Recognition (LPR) systems provide significant productivity and safety improvements in comparison to traditional, manual license plate searches.
LAW ENFORCEMENT: While an officer patrols, license plates are captured and compared to plates found on federal and local hotlists. Each plate is automatically recorded and saved with the associated infrared plate image, corresponding OCR translation, color plate image, date and time stamp, GPS coordinate and relevant data from hotlist (in the event of a hit).
PARKING ENFORCEMENT: While a parking enforcement operator patrols parking lots, parking garages and street parked vehicles, license plates are captured and compared to parking permits and timed based parking zones to identify and generate violations as they are encountered.
