Police intranet made easier

"Calling all Cars"

The Redmond, Wash., Police Department has chosen software that will allow

police to quickly post information on an intranet without assistance from

information technology staff.

The intranet will replace a system where information was first mailed

or distributed by hand and then posted on a bulletin board. The information

would be later converted manually into HTML for the intranet.

Xpedio Content Publisher, from IntraNet Solutions Inc., automatically

converts documents, files or pictures submitted by officers and administrators.

The documents are then immediately published on the intranet, where field

officers can access the files using a laptop computer and a wireless connection.

The system also can be used to post information on the Internet.
