TROY, MI--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - New World Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-wide software solutions for public safety, announces the launch of Aegis® Mobile Computing software release 8.0. This next generation of Mobile Computing leverages advanced Microsoft® technology to provide real-time access to multiple sources of information for officers in the field.

New World Systems partnered with customers from across the country to contribute to the design of this revolutionary software package to significantly improve the way law enforcement agencies leverage mobile computing technology.

"We've worked closely with New World's development team on a bi-monthly basis over the past year to provide real-world agency input to the software development process," said Sergeant Ron Clark of the San Leandro, Calif. Police Department, where a test deployment of Mobile 8.0 has been in use. "We have a real partnership with New World; having software developers on site to design Mobile 8.0 in a real-life environment has been crucial to creating this ground breaking mobile product. Everyone that uses it loves it. The interface is extremely easy to understand and use. Everything is designed to take advantage of the latest Windows® technology."

Mobile 8.0 key features include a completely new look and feel maximized for use with touch screens and other mobile hardware. Fast and intelligent search capabilities are optimized for the mobile environment to reduce information overload for the officer by organizing and consolidating responses from NCIC/NLETS, State, Local and other Global Justice based information sources.
