Eagle*Advantage RMS/JMS Officially Released

Our Eagle development team continually works to improve what’s already a robust and reliable solution.  To that end we’ve released the latest version of Eagle*Advantage RMS/JMS, which is the foundation of our product line.  Version contains several new enhancements to the software, including a daily activity log for tracking common agency tasks.  However, the main features we added in this release are report approval queues for supervisors and commanding officers and the messaging module that powers the process.

Message Center is a system-wide notification tool that provides users with the ability to view and manage their own messages upon login.  It automatically generates notification messages and delivers them to individual users based on event triggers in the system.  For example, notifications may be triggered when a report is ready for a supervisor’s approval, or when a reporting officer needs to make changes to a report.  Individuals can also use Message Center to send intra-office memos to other Eagle users or to message groups created by the system administrator.  We’re upbeat about the new module; we think customers will find it to be very useful for helping to handle their work flows.

Richmond Hill Police Department, Ga., Picks Integrated Law Enforcement Applications from EAS

EAS is honored to announce that after a thorough review of software vendors and products, Richmond Hill Police Department picked a combination of solutions from us.  We recently replaced their existing Live Scan software and connected the system to our state IPS server.  The agency has now gone live with our Records Management System and in-car Mobile solution as well.  The integrated nature of the products and our willingness to add requested features were key factors in their decision.  Before the installation began, we worked closely with Richmond Hill to spec out and develop several enhancements to the RMS, including many items on their must-have list and some that were already in our engineering pipeline.

Later in the year we’ll be adding even more of the agency’s requested features to the software, and we’ll be implementing Eagle*NET at the PD which will enable their officers to seamlessly exchange reports, warrants, and other vital information with Bryan County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies.  We’ll also be incorporating ez911 Computer Aided Dispatch functionality into Eagle*Mobile.  This upcoming module will allow Richmond Hill PD to take advantage of silent dispatch and other capabilities of our partner’s ezCAD system which is in use at Bryan County E911 – all from a single mobile application.

Millen Police Department, Ga., Becomes EAS Live Scan Customer

We’re pleased to say that Millen Police Department is now an EAS Live Scan customer.  We installed their new Live Scan and trained the agency on its use last week.  The PD chose a non-cabinet Eagle*Print system which includes a compact 10-print fingerprint scanner and a stand-alone USB foot pedal which provides convenient foot control over the print-capture process.

Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, Tenn., Procures Eagle*Print Palm System

We just completed the installation of a brand new Live Scan at Sumner County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee.  The new system is perfect for a jail environment; the hardware consists of a high-quality palm scanner, an industrial monitor and keyboard, and a ruggedized steel cabinet which houses the remaining components.  We’re confident that the new Live Scan, powered by our feature-rich Eagle*Print software, will be a valued addition to the agency’s existing system which will be re-purposed for dedicated use by their Warrants Department.

Bryan County Sheriff’s Office, Ga., Reinstates RMS and Adds JMS

We’re glad to report that Bryan County Sheriff’s Office, a past RMS customer, has reinstated the Eagle*Advantage RMS and added our JMS as well.  Complete and cost-effective solutions in their own right, the combination of the RMS and JMS together is even better.  The tight integration between the suites offers many advantages over operating completely separate programs for records and jail management.  Some highlights of the recently completed project include fresh installs of the latest versions of our software onto a brand new server, the implementation of a remote application solution to connect a satellite office to the main database, and interfaces to the agency’s current EAS Live Scan, CAD suite, and commissary system.  In addition, the data conversion service we offer will enable the sheriff’s office to retain all of the relevant information they gathered and processed while using their legacy JMS software.

Eagle*Print Live Scans Obtained by Sheriff’s Office and Probate Court in Emanuel County, Ga.

We’d like to welcome two new Live Scan customers: Emanuel County Sheriff’s Office and Emanuel County Probate Court.  Each agency now has a brand new Eagle*Print system complete with a fingerprint scanner, computer, monitor, keyboard, battery backup, network switch, and printer.  We were able to adapt an older uncommon style of cabinet at the sheriff’s office to hold their new components, which will primarily be used for submitting Criminal prints.  We installed the equipment at the probate court as a counter top system, which will primarily be used for processing Applicant prints.  Both Live Scan systems are taking advantage of our Internet Protocol Solution (IPS) to securely transmit and receive records over the Internet.  Signing up for EAGLE*IPS eliminated the need for the agencies to maintain a costly dedicated VPN connection to the Georgia AFIS.

Webster County Sheriff’s Office, Ga., Expands Capabilities with RMS/JMS and Mobile Products

A Live Scan customer for many years, Webster County Sheriff’s Office has now added several additional hardware and software products provided by EAS.  The agency upgraded to the Eagle*Advantage RMS/JMS suite, gaining a multitude of enhancements in the process.  The sheriff’s office also implemented a full Eagle*Mobile in-car solution running on ruggedized laptops and mobile printers.  The mobile solution provides features such as GPS-based mapping, E-ticketing, NCIC/GCIC search, and RMS integration including Incident Reporting, Accident Reporting, and Field Interview.  All together, these new products have measurably expanded and modernized the agency’s public safety capabilities.

Fairburn Police Department, Ga., Chooses Eagle*Print Applicant Live Scan

We’re excited to add Fairburn Police Department as a customer and proud that they chose an Eagle*Print system as their first Live Scan.  The solution we provided features a desktop computer, fingerprint scanner, multi-pedal foot switch, widescreen monitor, and laser printer.  It will mainly be used by the police department to process fingerprints and background checks for applicant purposes such as the issuance of gun permits and liquor licenses.  However, like any of our Live Scans operated by a law enforcement agency, the system can be used for other purposes, including the certification of their own officers and the processing of criminal suspects if the need arises.

Haralson County Sheriff’s Office, Ga., Switches Back to EAS as Solutions Provider

We’re delighted to announce that Haralson County Sheriff’s Office has switched back to our RMS/JMS and Live Scan solutions.  Like other recent customers, the sheriff’s office decided to return for some of the advantages we offer over our closest competitors, including our responsive and proactive technical support and on-site service.  To make the transition back to our products as smooth and cost effective as possible, we were able to utilize most of the agency’s existing hardware such as their server, Live Scan cabinet, and fingerprint scanner.
