Public safety agencies in Sheboygan County, Wisc., will begin using Spillman software to focus resources where they are needed most, according to the company.
Spillman will allow investigators to access crucial information required to make effective decisions, which they weren't able to do with their previous software system, according to Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department Inspector Glenn Berg.
"Spillman will greatly enhance our abilities compared to what we had previously," according to Berg. "This will allow us to be more efficient and effective as opposed to doing just random patrols."
Spillman's CompStat Dashboard module will enable the agencies to spot trends and make informed decisions by utilizing information gathered in the Spillman database. The agencies also purchased Spillman's records, mobile, corrections, fire/EMS, and resources solutions.
The agencies adopted Spillman after evaluating 10 public safety software vendors. The user-friendly software and Spillman's policy of providing customers with frequent product enhancements at no additional cost distinguished Spillman from its competitors, according to Berg.
"We wanted a vendor that would be involved in continuing research and development," according to Berg. "We were looking for a long-term partner with Sheboygan County."
The Spillman system will be shared by Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department, Sheboygan Police Department, Kohler Police Department, Sheboygan Falls Police Department, Plymouth Police Department, Elkhart Lake Police Department, and Sheboygan Fire Department.
The agencies are scheduled to go live with their Spillman system this month. An additional 23 volunteer fire departments and an ambulance service may also share the software in the future.
