The problem

Keeping law enforcement devices on the straight and narrow was posing a problem for the New Zealand Police.

Due to the nature of law enforcement, all equipment used to assess legal tolerances in New Zealand must be regularly calibrated for accuracy, while ensuring every individual device is accounted for at all times.

The speed testing devices are complex in number, type, and technology. They include laser guns, radar, speed cameras and static speed test sites, passive and evidential breathalysers, and weighing scales.

It was also critical to ensure an ISO 17025 quality process was followed, recorded and auditable.

The solution

Company-X solved centralised and fully automated all required tasks and data-points with software purpose-designed and built for the calibration laboratories. This removed manual processes and made it easy to monitor and track calibration data like location and status.

The software package included physical location and ownership of devices, status alerts, maintenance reporting and repair history, and aligned with legislation to produce a Certificate of Accuracy for each legally calibrated device.

Without heavy-weight analysis and program specification, we were able to deliver speed to market along with significant cost savings.

The verdict

New Zealand Police Calibration Services was extremely happy with our iterative rapid prototyping approach and the speed with which we delivered the final application.
