APS provides agencies the flexibility to deploy an Electronic Ticketing and Forms™ solution on handheld devices, and the mobile computers installed in their patrol vehicles. When most agencies begin considering an Electronic Ticketing and Forms™ initiative, they typically start evaluating solutions that operate on handheld/PDA devices. However, for the many law enforcement agencies that have installed (or are going to install) mobile computers/laptops in their patrol vehicles, deploying an electronic ticketing/forms system on the mobile computers is a much more cost effective and easy-to-use solution.
The following is an overview of the options agencies have when deploying a mobile computer and/or handheld solution. Detailed information on the applications offered by APS is available within the Mobile Solutions and Handheld Solutions sections of this website. In addition, the “Electronic Ticketing: How to Deploy the Right Solution for your Agency” white paper can be download at the bottom of this page.
