iPatrol (MPANiche UK)

The power of Niche RMS on Android Note4 with Airwatch. Deployed to over 5000 officers in South Wales Police and Gwent Police.

iPatrol was built by police, for police. Key objectives are a Use Case driven user experience available on the large form factor Note4 with Stylus for data entry. With Airwatch as the EMM platform, Airwatch SDK, and NetMotion for network connectivity. Meets Home Office security and privacy guidelines, with full Audit control.

This app combines Niche RMS access, PNC, Hopewiser gazetteer, SunGard ControlWorks and Steria Storm Command and Control, with GPS Tracking, device side history, a wide range of forms from Stop Search to Intel Submit, Witness Statement, and others, and an Electronic Pocket NoteBook, with the ability to work both on-line and to a more limited extent, Off-line, given the Welsh terrain and areas lacking cellular coverage.

With twice annual releases, first to a pilot group and then forcewide, an agile process meets a large scale deployment. The large screen smartphone format, optimizing the Officer Experience, minimizing keystrokes and touch, re-using Person, Vehicle, and Address search results for form completion and data input, along with smart activities like dialing phone numbers, looking up addresses and using device capabilities to perform satnav functions just flows. All locations can be filled with address lookups, or manually supplied, all device activities are saved to the ePNB, where they can be searched or used again, and added to, and accessed for several weeks on device, and for years on the server. The ePNB is also able to accept notes, sketches, camera images and voice dictations.
