Computer Aided Dispatch Software
Advanced police dispatch software is a must for 911 call centers. That being said, the software should be easy to learn and even easier to use, so that dispatchers can perform their daily tasks unhindered.
PTS Platinum CAD meets that need with all that you’d expect and more from modern computer aided dispatch software.

Customization Is Key To Usability
Dispatchers’ main goal is to help keep their officers and the community as safe as possible. However, unwieldy and complicated software applications just stand in the way. Platinum CAD lays all important tools at the dispatcher’s fingertips; dispatching features are right there on the main screen and everything else is at most a few clicks away.
Don’t like things exactly how we’ve laid it out? Change it. Customize the window layouts, edit field labels, change the size and placement of fields and more.
Customization and options don’t just apply to aesthetics, however. Platinum CAD Computer Aided Dispatch software provides numerous options that help improve workflow.
For example, multiple dispatch methods are included. Drag and drop Events and Units between grids or on the integrated Bing map, type on the command line, or use a function key. And speaking of mapping, our optional AVL program integrates seamlessly into the CAD map for vehicle tracking and plotting.
Daily Tasks Don’t Need To Be So Tasking
Many people dread coming to work because they spend all day dealing with software that is much more convoluted than need be. However, Platinum CAD is easy to use. This is dispatch software for Users who don’t want complicated technology to get in their way.
For example, set up an unlimited number of resource rotation lists so that when a wrecker or ambulance is needed, it’s not necessary to try to figure who’s available or even on duty. Simply click to send the next one in line. And if for some reason the first unit in the list isn’t available, it’s easy to send it to the back of the line and click to send the next one.
Ask this question: will officers know what to do when they come upon a specific situation that has a history of causing trouble? With Platinum CAD, set up Standard Operating Procedures for every Event, Address, Person and Vehicle record in the database. That way, officers encountering those sticky situations have all the pertinent info to keep them safe right there in plain view.
With some police dispatch software, it can be difficult to find specific records in the database. But not with Platinum CAD. Create customized grid and Boolean data searches, then save and share them so that when that search is needed again, it will be an easy process that won’t drag the process down.
Communicate Like A Real Team
Visual and audible alerts notify of BOLOs, upcoming scheduled events, Shift PassOns and more. Send this or any other info to one or more officers using Platinum CAD’s own email system.
Multi-Compliant Police Dispatch Software
An agency’s dispatching needs will never be met if the software tools in use aren’t compliant with important standards, rules and regulations. PTS Solutions’ Platinum CAD is compliant with APCO, IACP, NIEM and CJIS, with SQL Server integration.
