Louisiana Sheriff Streamlines The Traffic Citation Process With Apple iPad, Socket Mobile Barcode Scanner, And Zerion Software's iFormBuilder Data Collection Platform
SAAS Mobile Ticketing/Citation System Saves Time, Reduces Data Entry Errors, and Improves Efficiency for Law Enforcement
NEWARK, CA (MARKETWIRE) - Socket Mobile, Inc. SCKT -2.97% , an innovative provider of mobile productivity solutions, today announced that Zerion Software, creators of the award-winning iFormBuilder data collection platform, has standardized on the Socket Bluetooth 2D Cordless Hand Scanner (CHS) 7Xi for its mobile ticketing/citation project.
The eTicketing solution allows law enforcement officers to enter citation data directly on an Apple iPad(R), iPhone(R), or iPod touch(R) while interacting with drivers, eliminating the need to return to the car and thus, saving time. To reduce data entry errors, driver's license and vehicle information can be collected using the Socket CHS 7Xi barcode scanner. The final citation is printed on a Zebra mobile printer and is then sent to a centralized server or stored for later transfer when using offline.
"We have 40 officers currently using this platform and are very pleased with the results," said Troy Hidalgo, technology director at St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office, located in Southeast Louisiana, 30 miles west of New Orleans. "In addition to eTicketing, we also use this application for security rounds. Upon arrival, we scan the 2D barcode on the building, which documents the time we were there and sends a report to the building owner. The Socket CHS 7Xi has made inputting data quick and easy, thus further saving us time, reducing errors, and ultimately, increasing revenue."
"Our eTicketing solution is just one example of how iFormBuilder empowers forward thinking managers to solve business problems," said Sze Wong, chief executive officer of Zerion Software. "In the past, an enterprise project such as this would have required an IT team, necessitating full corporate buy-in and involvement from numerous other departments. iFormBuilder automates this process, allowing anyone who can write a simple script to use our existing infrastructure to create their solution. We call this 'The Smart Enterprise.'"
"iFormBuilder allows a breadth of possibilities by allowing anyone to leverage the cloud infrastructure provided by Zerion and apply their requirements and needs to produce a solution," said Mike Gifford, executive vice president at Socket Mobile. "We're already seeing deployments using Zerion's SAAS offering, and we expect to see many more Smart Enterprise solutions using the iFormBuilder platform. We are extremely pleased that Zerion Software has chosen the Socket CHS barcode scanners as their recommended scanner of choice for Apple iOS devices."
