We enjoyed a seamless cut-over to Intergraphs computer aided dispatch system, said Captain Mike Shockley, Athens-Clarke County Police Department. Intergraph's multi-jurisdictional, multi-agency capabilities allowed our jurisdiction to partner with the University of Georgia Police Department as a spoke on our hub. Thanks to Intergraph's public safety software, Athens-Clarke County, the home of the University of Georgia, will have a safer community and student environment. As we move towards the final implementation phases of Intergraphs records management system that is slated to go live this summer, we look forward to the same level of excellent service and support.

It was ahead of its time when we first partnered with Intergraph and we feel they are still a leader in the industry. Now being used for both emergency dispatch of police and fire, it has proven its worth time and time again.
