Police in Whitefish, Montana Now Issuing Tickets with digiTICKET eCitation System
Saltus Technologies™, a leading provider of innovative eCitation systems for public safety, has announced that the Whitefish, Montana Police Department recently deployed the digiTICKET® electronic ticketing solution. digiTICKET allows police officers to use a handheld ticket writer to scan a driver license barcode and quickly generate municipal and county tickets. The system is designed to reduce officers’ time, eliminate data errors and reduce administrative costs. digiTICKET also interfaces with Whitefish’s New World Systems records management system (RMS) creating additional efficiency gains for the City by eliminating the need to re-key ticket data into the RMS.
Whitefish Assistant Chief of Police Mike Ferda said, “In the last two years we completed a new facility and new hardware and software implementation in all areas of the police administration function. By far, Saltus was the most user-friendly company we did business with. We are a small department only using seven handheld devices, but Customer Service has been exceptional and right on top of our needs. The implementation team understood their role and walked us through the process like veterans.”
Local and State agencies continue to face smaller budgets due to lower tax revenues. digiTICKET's proven ability to increase officer productivity and recover lost revenue is a critical force multiplier; for both small and large agencies. Additionally, digiTICKET’s configuration tools, straightforward user interface and open architecture makes it easy to implement and simplifies integration with existing RMS and court software packages.
Saltus Technologies is now deployed in eleven US states and has proven to be a key contributing factor in decreasing traffic accidents by over 10 percent while saving agencies time and money.
