The Richardson Police Department and GlobeRanger Corporation Launch Intelligent Asset Management System
RICHARDSON, Texas, Oct. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Richardson Police Department (RPD) and GlobeRanger Corporation announced today that the RPD’s intelligent asset management system is now in service. The system powered by GlobeRanger’s GR AWARE(TM) application provides the RPD real-time visibility of their critical asset inventory, increased control over these assets, improved reporting capabilities, database accuracy and advanced alerting capabilities. The automation, the ease of use and process improvements the system offers, is expected to deliver a strong return on the RPD’s investment in a very short time.
The solution runs on GlobeRanger’s iMotion(TM) platform which enables data capture from current and the next generation of devices (barcode readers, RFID and sensors to name a few). Inventory can now be electronically scanned and cataloged. This allows the organization to move away from paper records and time consuming manual entries while simultaneously increasing accuracy. Enhancing the tracking of assets ranging from weapons and uniforms to radars and cell phones is crucial to effectively managing and securing resources of the Department.
Commenting on the project, Chief of Police, Jimmy Spivey, said: “We are very pleased with GlobeRanger’s solution and services. We expect the system will improve our overall inventory control process. This initiative supports our commitment to leverage technology as we strive to deliver the optimal service to our citizens.”
“This deployment brings me special satisfaction because our technology and innovation can now bring benefit to an enterprise in our own home base, the City of Richardson,” said George Brody, President and CEO of GlobeRanger Corporation. “We have had a long standing commitment to our community and look forward to working with the RPD and the city as they harness the maximum benefit from this investment.”
GlobeRanger has operational customers and established partners both domestically and internationally, in diverse markets such as the U.S. Government, Aerospace, Logistics, Automotive, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical and others. Today GlobeRanger’s solutions manage over 20,000 devices deployed worldwide in more than 345 distinct facilities.
