Wipro Infotech, a provider of IT and business transformation services, has developed an integrated police information system, which is an online application software. Currently the application is in a pilot stage.
According to the company, the online application software covers all the important activities related to the day-to-day functioning of the police departments including the back-end administrative processes of general administration, finance and stores, etc. The processes have been automated to ease the tasks of administration and record keeping, thereby bringing in operational efficiency throughout the police department, the company added.
Wipro Infotech said that the application has been developed on a flexible software-oriented-architecture, which allows it to be used in a centralized deployment mode as well as a de-centralized deployment mode. This architecture is expected to enable each police station to function independently and at the same time allows for data to flow to the divisional and headquarter levels at regular intervals, thereby achieving the benefits of a centralized system.
The application also has a citizen interface through which complaints can be raised and the status of an already lodged FIR can be tracked. The user interface can display content both in English and the local language.
