Wishing to take advantage of digital developments and smartphone capabilities to simplify and speed up time consuming processes, Cumbria Police approached Penrillian to develop an app to collect and submit data to the Home Office.
Within very challenging timescales to meet Home Office deadlines, Penrillian developed a branded mobile app for Mental Health Monitoring and Community Resolution forms.
The app is designed to be as user-friendly as possible and it features drop down lists and checkbox controls that allow critical data to be entered in real-time and uploaded to the Cumbria Constabulary database. The in-built quality checks ensure data input is accurate. In addition, by removing the process of transcribing handwritten forms into electronic format, a potential for error is completely avoided.
The real-time nature of data entry removes the need for officers to return to the station to input forms, saving valuable time.
