Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc. and Panasonic Computer Solutions Company today announced the availability of INKforce™ Code Enforcement Tracking (CET) solution for the Panasonic Toughbook® U1, the first rugged ultra mobile PC (UMPC) to integrate the new low power Intel® Atom™ processor. The U1 reinvents handheld computing by integrating robust features previously only available on a full size PC in a rugged UMPC form factor that can be used anywhere.
“INKforce software provides a turnkey web-based software solution for municipal code inspections,” said Kyp Walls, director of product management, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company. “The combination of the INKforce Code Enforcement Tracking solution and the rugged Toughbook U1 will enable reliable data access, helping to streamline government operations.”
The mission at INKforce is to put all the necessary tools into the hands of the mobile field worker to accomplish more without interruption or costly delays. Drastically different from the typical enterprise software with a "code module," INKforce CET was designed exclusively for municipal code compliance. With street-smart functionality that includes integrated GIS, a local tax roll interface, complete schedule routing, digital integration of the entire municipal code, and the industry's only signature capture capability, the mobile code officer becomes a complete mobile office able to work effectively all day in the field.
Transparent to the officer, all updates are pushed in real time to the home office where the new data is available for immediate collaboration. Covering all aspects of the code enforcement process from initial complaint to final disposition, INKforce software and reliable Panasonic Toughbook products create a powerful partnership.
Unlike most handhelds, the Toughbook CF-U1 operates on the full-function Windows® XP and Windows Vista® operating systems, giving users unprecedented remote access to feature-rich software applications in the field. The CF-U1 features a thumb-friendly and always-accessible backlit QWERTY keyboard that makes data input fast and easy. State-of-the-art Panasonic LCD technology enables sunlight viewability with low-power, white LED backlighting. Its fanless all-weather design also reduces noise, weight and eliminates points of failure; its twin, long-lasting, hot-swappable batteries enable battery replacement without disrupting operation; and its magnesium alloy chassis delivers protection from bumps and drops of up to 4 feet. The solid state drive contributes to reliability, while also expanding the CF-U1's operating temperature range.
INKforce Software's Code Enforcement Tracking (CET) is available as a site deployment or SaaS (Hosted) solution. Call INKforce for pricing details.
