MPA Niche (Canada / US)

The power of Niche RMS on Android, iOS, Windows and BlackBerry.

Key objectives are to make a Use Case driven experience, with 2Factor authentication and PKI certificate based login available on all major mobile platforms, all at the same time. We support multiple EMM/MDM tools, and work with Entrust and Thales (formerly Gemalto, and before that, Safenet).

2Factor Authentication can be any combination of two of the following three: Fingerprint readers / Strong network passwords / hardware tokens and PKI Certificate based logon can be completed with PIVD certificates, either within the application or at the Android Keystore / MDM container level.

This app combines Niche RMS access, CPIC, and MTO/PARIS, with GPS tagging and location lookup, device side history, a wide range of forms from Street Check 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.

The goal was to support all key mobile Use Cases functionality on a 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. 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. The ePNB is also able to accept notes, sketches, camera images and voice dictations.
