Pima County goes Mobile with Help from Spillman Technologies
LOGAN, UT, January 8, 2002–Pima County in Arizona signed a $359, 987 contract in September of 2000 to purchase Rover MDC from Spillman Technologies. Rover MDC is Spillman's mobile data computer application. The contract calls for the installation of Rover MDC in 100 patrol units.
Sgt. Byron Gwalpney of Pima County stated, We have used Spillman software since 1990 and we wanted to have a mobile application that integrates with our current system. Rover integrates seamlessly and is a big asset to Pima County. We have been using Rover for the last few months and it is amazing what type of information you have access to from right inside the patrol car. Our officers are able to get work done not only faster, but while they're still in the field. Rover has been a great addition to our current system.”
With Rover MDC, Pima County officers can query their state and agency databases for name, vehicle, property, and firearms information. Because Rover MDC uses wireless dispatch technology, officers can receive live dispatch calls from the Computer-Aided Dispatch screen and update their statuses without using a radio. Rover MDC's large fonts enable officers to easily view information even while the vehicle is moving.
