Omnis Group has 35 police forces on its client list and IPSO successfully delivered the Home
Office pilot of the huge £2.6 billion Airwave Project to place all emergency services on a new digital trunked radio system. Stuart Fillingham, who headed the team introducing Airwave at Lancashire Constabulary, commented: "We needed a real-time planning tool that could attach and control documents and their templates and which was applicable to a multi-project environment. Some thought that we were asking for the moon but only with such a system in place, could we efficiently oversee all our projects. We opted for IPSO because it is a seamlessly integrated multiple project, real-time system that combines project planning, to-do lists and document management. It offers increased speed of response for project approvals and resolving delays. IPSO allows for reporting the assignment and completion of tasks at management, team and individual levels. Users are able to interrogate their own to-do lists from any computer, which tells them what they have to do and by when.
