Denver Fire Department to use TDS Recon Pocket PC
Denver Fire Department bought 70 rugged TDS Recon handheld computers to use in its fire safety inspection process. They expect to achieve significant savings in time, effort and money.

The Recon, which runs Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PCs, will help the department eliminate several time-consuming steps in the inspection process.

Currently inspectors must generate hard-copy inspection report forms, hand-write inspection data on the forms in the field, and then pass the forms to a data-entry worker, who enters the information into a central computer. Using the Recon, the inspectors will be able to download their schedules, enter inspection data directly to the handheld in the field, and transfer it directly to the central computer at the end of the day. The new process will eliminate multiple steps, save paper and prevent costly data-entry errors.

"We plan to use the Recon for 5,000 inspections this year, and 20,000 inspections per year thereafter," said Mike Stutz, information technology manager for the Denver Fire Department. "We expect that will save us the equivalent of 4,000 data-entry hours each year -- a significant savings in this era of tight budgets."
