CHESTER - 9th March, 2004 - ISYS Search Software, a global supplier
of search software for businesses and public sector organisations, today
announced that the UK's largest police force, the Metropolitan Police,
has selected ISYS to provide search and retrieval functionality for its
investigators. The win means that the ISYS range of search software is
now used in 45 percent of UK Police organisations.
Australian-owned and headquartered in Sydney, ISYS Search Software first
tackled the UK Police market only 12 months ago, achieving its first sale
in June 2003, to Hertfordshire Police HQ. Since then over 20 other UK
police forces have purchased the award-winning ISYS software, including
the Greater Manchester Police, West Midlands Police, Merseyside Police
and Sussex Police.
Police organisations use ISYS to help find information that may appear
in a range of different reports, databases and other law enforcement resources.
Investigators can perform keyword searches to uncover any relevant information
and use features such as synonyms to find occurrences of similar words
or aliases. The software is also used during court proceedings, where
it enables prosecutors to quickly check facts and transcripts whilst a
trial is underway.
"We're delighted with the momentum we're getting from the UK law
enforcement market," said Ian Davies, founder and Managing Director
of ISYS. "We've had quite a lot of success in this area in both Australia
and the US, so it's great to be able to transport that to the UK. To achieve
45 percent penetration within a year is a great result, and we have a
number of other UK police forces who have said they'll buy, so we expect
to continue increasing our penetration."
