The Holiday Inn National Conference Center in East Windsor was the venue for the Intelligence Module User Group Meeting, convened for the third time this past February 11. CSI holds user group meetings for users of specific modules to help them gain a better understanding of their InfoShare™ products and to meet and network with other InfoShare™ users in similar job situations. These meetings are equally important to our company, as they provide us the opportunity to get fresh ideas from the “power users” on how they use InfoShare™ and possible new enhancements we should consider to furthers support our customers and improve their use of our products.
At this latest Intelligence Module meeting, CSI welcomed representatives from the Intelligence Units of various agencies, including the Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Salem and Union County Prosecutors’ Offices as well as representatives from the Trenton Police Department, Gloucester Township Police Department, New Jersey State Police and the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI).
CSI Executive Vice President Rich Norcross led off the meeting by welcoming and introducing the attendees. CSI presentations included a discussion of Global ALPR (Automated License Plate Recognition) technology by CSI VP and CIO Chris Rein and one on Purging and Validation Processes by CSI VP Josh Ottenberg, Esq. CSI Account Executive Frank Clayton presented some of the exciting new features of the InfoShare™ Intelligence 3.0 upgrade, many a result of previous user group discussions and recommendations. The New Jersey State Police offered a presentation focusing on Statewide Intelligence Gathering, led by NJSP Lt. Greg Demeter.
CSI received very positive feedback following the February 11 meeting. “Several users told me they really liked the forum of getting everyone in the room, putting names with faces and networking. They also liked what we had to show and the discussions that opened up from there,” said CSI’s Frank Clayton. CSI thanks all who attended and contributed to some of the very interesting and informative discussions we had that day. If you get an opportunity to attend one of our upcoming user group meetings, we hope you will attend and present your ideas to us and your fellow users.
