SunGard widens distribution of CAD suite
SunGard OSSI will roll out its public-safety software suite on a national basis. The product previously had been distributed on a limited basis in North Carolina. The suite makes it possible to share data between CAD systems and integrates records management and jail-management systems. The CAD-to-CAD data-sharing capability is particularly important for states that have a large number of public-safety agencies, such as California, said Andrew Smith of SunGard. “We’re seeing a much greater cooperative effort between agencies since 9/11,“ he said.
