Local Government, the police and fire service are all under increasing pressure to make operational cost savings and at the same time maximise revenue streams.
Therefore, investments that deliver long-term savings are of paramount importance. For example, the police service can effectively use RFID technology to track and tag evidence. It takes on average 7 visits to close an incident, and the chances of information and evidence being compromised increases the longer a case is open. RFID on board the vehicle is a smart solution. The ET1 Tablet can analyse driver behaviour. Forms can be completed online, saving a paper trail that would deplete half the Amazon!
Research suggests that the ROI on a £2K investment for kitting out a police vehicle is a saving of 10K a few short years down the line. Statistics have shown that one breathalyzer is lost every day. They cost in the region of £650 per unit. If these units are tagged losses will decrease significantly. Similarly, in the area of Defence, tracking of assets has huge potential. Networking for schools can provide a whole host of benefits to learning. Many areas of local government from Waste disposal to social housing have opportunities to revolutionise the way they operate. Motorola have a trusted adviser status in Government, and were the suppliers of the radio and airwave communications for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
