Mobile Innovations President Gary Bauer has announced his company’s Bronze Sponsorship for the upcoming BlackBerry World Conference to be held at the Marriott World Centre in Orlando this April 30th to May 3rd. Rubbing shoulders with vendors such as HP, Information Week, Ingram Micro as well as many of the worlds biggest mobile carriers, the company intends to build on its performance as a 2011 winner of the Wireless Achievement Award for innovation in the public sector. At last year’s event the company won the coveted award as recognition for its outstanding mobile law enforcement work for the Chatham Kent Police Service.
Rather than presenting at a regular booth, Mobile Innovations will be demonstrating its suite of game-changing apps for mobile law enforcement from a Dodge Charger Police Enforcer, parked (legally of course) on the show floor. Seamlessly integrated for BES users who run BlackBerry smartphones, the apps are now available for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 tablets as well as well as other BlackBerry platforms. “Our apps all run on BlackBerry smartphones, and now we offer the same functionality for BlackBerry PlayBook tablets,” explains Bauer. “So we’re ahead of the curve in anticipation of having our apps running on BB10 just as soon as the new devices become available.”
Mobile Innovations apps will be demonstrated live in-vehicle by veteran Chatham Kent Police Services (CKPS) Constable Ken Koke – an long-time user of the apps. “We have been using Mobile Innovations apps for over five years now,” says Koke. “And I can’t say enough good things about them. They make our job easier, safer and faster by turning our cruisers into police stations on wheels.” Koke will be joined in the cruiser by Bauer and Paul Grierson, VP Business Development for D&R Electronics, the company that has partnered with Mobile Innovations to provide upfits for all police vehicles including mounts, lights and sirens as well as many other on-board IT components for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet in-vehicle platform.
The growing list of apps used by CKPS and over fifty other law enforcement agencies in North America and Europe allows secure 2-factor access to criminal and Records Management databases, license scanning and error-free eTicket issuing and printing. Officers can also access their BeatBlog, Vehicle Inspection Forms, Business Activity reporting and more. Mobile Innovations’ proprietary suite of solutions for secure tablets and smartphones is boosting productivity, increasing operational efficiencies and overcoming current budget challenges facing police services everywhere.
On Government Day, and during regular sessions, Constable Koke and CKPS IT specialists Anita Scott and Quentin Sprik will be presenting on behalf of their agency and Mobile Innovations, with Bauer in attendance to field questions from the audience. Their Public Services sector seminar will provide government personnel and law enforcement officials with the opportunity to hear firsthand about compelling on-the-beat user experiences with Mobile Innovation applications for the BlackBerry solution.
