Garfield County, CO Chooses New World Systems' Public Safety Software Solution

TROY, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 17, 2006 -- New World Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-wide software solutions for the public sector, announced that the Garfield County Emergency Communications Authority signed a contract valued at approximately $1.4 million for its Microsoft Windows®-based Aegis®/MSP Public Safety software and services.

New World's integrated, multi-jurisdictional Aegis/MSP Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Law Enforcement Records Management, Fire Records Management, Mobile Computing, Aegis Justice Link, and Corrections Management, along with several additional modules, will provide the County with a totally integrated public safety solution. With the New World solution, the County's consolidated CAD center, 7 law enforcement agencies, 6 fire and EMS agencies and the DA's office will be able to share information across the County to improve community services, increase safety and automate daily processes.

"We currently have an antiquated system with islands of information and little integration across the County," said Garfield County 911 Director, Carl Stephens. "We chose New World for several reasons, but the key reason was that they had the most comprehensive package and it was written in-house with integration in mind. Crime doesn't stop at jurisdictional borders, and having an integrated public safety solution is critical to first responder and community safety. In addition, New World had excellent references including both the City of Rifle and Garfield County who currently use New World's Logos® Public Administration ERP suite."

Developed using proven Microsoft technology, including industry standard Windows Server and SQL Server database, the Aegis/MSP suite is a stable and flexible solution for any size public safety agency. The familiar Windows platform also reduces training, which will allow Garfield County to benefit from the integrated software quickly. "In addition to information sharing and improved productivity, we are looking to take advantage of CCIC (Colorado NCIC) integration, integrated Phase II compliance, paging and fire pre-plans," said Stephens. "These will have a real impact on our ability to protect the community."

The County had a unique funding approach to their project and used both public and private funds. "We would not have been able to purchase the solution nor realize the expected impact on the community without a Department of Local Affairs Grant and generous private funding. EnCana Oil and Gas, Williams Energy and Antero all saw the impact this solution could have on the community and provided significant funding," said Stephens.

According to Chief of Police Darryl Meisner, City of Rifle, "New World will permit all public safety agencies in Garfield County to more effectively and efficiently serve their communities in spite of unprecedented growth. Inter-agency cooperation is at an all time high and can only improve service to all of Garfield County."

New World's software will help the County's consolidated CAD center, 7 law enforcement agencies, 6 fire and EMS agencies and the DA's office, provide enhanced services to approximately 40,000 citizens in the county.
