Greater Manchester Police transforming Modern Policing through Digital

Learn how HCL helped Greater Manchester Police (GMP) transform Modern Policing through a Digital Mobile Platform

An increasing number of businesses are starting to adopt the platform business model and digital strategies in order to remain competitive and HCL is helping organizations Design, Engineer and Sustain the Complex Business Critical Platforms.

Greater Manchester Police has successfully implemented a mobile solution that realized significant efficiency savings, improved officer morale and service to the public and enabled the force to focus on policing, freeing it up from having to return to the station to update computer records.

This session will cover how the IS transformation program helped GMP enable better and more timely decision making in a flatter organization, where police officers have more autonomy so that they can be closer to the community while managing risks. While legacy systems and processes, bound by desktop applications and radio communication, had created a suboptimal environment for officers, innovative technology through a mobile platform has enabled frontline officers to tackle operational and financial challenges with real-time access to information while on the move, on the first contact at incidents. The session will also highlight how the award-winnin technology-assisted GMP inserving its communities during the Coronavirus pandemic.
