October 2011:. Another modernization contract was awarded by IBM to Oxford to support one of the largest police departments in the country in their requirements for modernization of a crime and emergency management system.
Rational HATS was used to resolve the challenges of a cryptic, less than user-intuitive functionality of an older 3270 interface. Oxford’s delivery with HATS demonstrated the ability to provide additional real-time information that was not previously possible. The new HATS interface solution radically improves information availability and activity tracking in designated precincts and police units, more easily performs historical searches from its crime base, and automatically refreshes complex queries while tracking the real-time status of incidents in progress.
