Saltus Technologies will integrate its digiTicket e-Citation Solution into PTS Solutions' public safety software to enable law enforcement personnel to quickly create electronic citations in the field and upload the information directly to an agency's PTS Records Management System (RMS), the companies announced.
The digiTicket system is capable of creating any ticket using an easily customized ticket format including traffic, parking, pedestrian, code enforcement, city, county, parish or state standard forms. The ticket can be signed electronically by the offender and printed in the field. The digiTicket software running on handheld computers or laptop computers automatically updates all officer, court and violation information upon secure login by each officer.
"We are extremely pleased to have Saltus Technologies as our new electronic ticketing partner," said Dave Fuqua, president of PTS. "Their digiTicket is one of the easiest to use products in the market. We look forward to bringing their technology to our clients."
PTS customers using digiTicket and Incident Solutions will spend considerably less time creating and importing tickets. The digiTicket system scans driver's licenses, state and military ids from all over the United States, Canada and Mexico. Citation issuance times are typically reduced by more than 50% and the import of citation data into the RMS happens with the click of a button.
"Getting your agency personnel off the road and back into a safe location is another benefit to this product," Fuqua said. "Improving officer safety is always a top priority."
Integrating the digiTicket e-Citation system with PTS RMS eliminates data input errors typically occurring with traditional methods. By automating the ticketing process in the field, errors related to incorrect or incomplete data on the tickets as well as issues with handwriting are eliminated, according to PTS.
The system also offers the benefit of capturing additional digital content such as pictures, GPS coordinates, voice notes, and electronic signatures. This information is available through an online management system where ticketing data can be reported on and tickets can be reproduced in PDF format.
