MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 30, 2016) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ Solutions", "VIQ" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VQS), a global expert providing a cybersecurity protected technology and service platform for digital evidence capture and content management, is pleased to announce that VIQ Dataworxs, in partnership with reseller Edi-Cord WPS, has been awarded a digital capture and workflow contract with an Ontario, Canada, police force.
"Law enforcement agencies continue to be leaders in the rapid adaptation of new digital platforms that strengthen cybersecurity and improve operational effectiveness through the increased utilization of their digital assets," said Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Solutions. "With our established global pedigree in these key technologies, the VIQ footprint in modern law enforcement continues to grow."
Over 40 law enforcement and public safety agencies around the world currently use the secure VIQ law enforcement digital capture and management platform.
The customer will use secured interactive telephone recording technology to capture officers' field reports, which will then be automatically routed through a city-wide digital workflow. The sophisticated workflow capabilities enable the customer to streamline their reporting procedures and reduce the amount of paperwork required for officers and staff.
"By digitizing their incident capture procedures, the police force will reduce the amount of officer paperwork, providing an immediate boost to the police department's productivity," said Daryl Duda, VIQ Dataworxs Vice President of Sales and Business Development. "The VIQ Dataworxs advanced voice management system provides an automated backend workflow that increases authorized collaboration on digital files as it simultaneously increases data security."
The contract was won by VIQ Dataworxs reseller Edi-Cord WPS. Earlier in the year, Edi-Cord was awarded a similar capture and workflow contract with an Ontario hospital.
"Through AV partners like Edi-Cord, the VIQ Dataworxs footprint in mid-sized hospitals and law enforcement agencies continues to rapidly expand as these agencies modernize with new technology platforms that emphasize efficiency, automation, privacy and cybersecurity," added Mr. Paré.
