Press Release Summary: Software Award Will Enhance Florida Public Safety While Reducing Waste, Paperwork, Saving Florida Tax Payers Over $50 Million
Press Release Body: Kalamazoo Michigan, Oct. 10, 2008 -- IyeTek LLC announced today an award of more than $5 million in licensing rights to Florida's sixty-seven counties. The award will result in automating and improving the quality of Florida's traffic citations and crash records statewide. The award marks the first of its kind offered by iyeTek and part of a nationwide $150 million technology improvement effort.
"This nation's system for processing traffic citations and crash reports cost taxpayers millions each week and waste time and resources as well", said Christopher Hood iyeTek's National Grant Manager. "High cost to taxpayers has been amplified in Florida by Amendment One and other pending budget cutbacks". The awards will help Florida continue to make communities safe by improving traffic enforcement and processing procedures. Florida's award will help reduce the number of dismissed traffic tickets based on clerical errors while reducing paper processing and data entry cost by over 80%. Award amounts are determined by the condition of each county's records, amount of funding requested, and the impact improvements will have on the availability of records submitted to the state crash system.
iyeTek's citation/crash software will integrate criminal history checks during traffic stops and use modern voice technology. Complete, accurate, and accessible records permit law enforcement officials to know if individuals questioned or detained have criminal histories. Voice features help officers remain focused on suspects instead of computer screens. Other features are signature and fingerprint capture, auto-population of driver information and a host of other patrol car automation features. iyeTek software reduces by 70% the time required for the typical traffic stop. Florida law enforcement agencies will also have nationwide data and information sharing features not typically available from patrol cars.
