Using Tablet PC, wireless and web-based applications for Code Enforcement
Code enforcement, a rigid paperwork and time intensive government compliance process, is undergoing major streamlining with city and county officers as well as authorized administrators soon having the ability to schedule, track and monitor the life cycle of all inspections directly from the field using a Tablet PC, wireless connection and web browser.

INKforce is a suite of automated government software tools, recently put into the field by the City of Lauderhill in Broward County, Florida.

CGA's Data Technologies and Development team created the code enforcement application using ArcIMS, ArcSDE and SQL/Oracle and web technologies as the main platform to deliver an inspection process using realtime GIS (Geographic Information Systems) enabled data. Armed with a Panasonic Toughbook Tablet PC and a wireless connection, code enforcement officers while in the field can access schedules and directions, property and complaint histories, city and county ordinance specifications and can secure signatures and issue compliance notices on the spot or automatically initiate a certified mailing to the property owner.

The company says the base cost of INKforce is US$25,000 for the first five licenses, which includes software plus 40 hours of training. Customization, a GIS module application and service updates would be additional. Standardised software modules are available.
