Primary Marking Systems' Evidence Tracking with Information Solution Technologies or eTWIST ® 2009 [US Patent #8220711], is a barcoded Windows Mobile 6.x based software designed for unobtrusive tracking of Evidence. eTWIST® is perfect for Law Enforcement, Military, or Private Enterprise Applications needing Chain of Custody.
eTWIST® makes full use of Microsoft and Symbol/Motorola technoligies. It is designed in the latest .NET Compact Framework 3.5 and makes use of Microsoft's Compact SQL to store data along with Motorola's API library to access Barcode Scanning, Camera, GPS (Capturing location of pictures), and printing of barcode labels to a Zebra GX420T printer. With the Motorola MC55/MC75 devices you have many connection options such as USB, Bluetooth, Wireless, or Cellular. All data can be imported into our Backend system storing to MS SQL Server 2005/2008 or into any custom system you may already use with only minor work.
Improved accuracy and optimization of time in Law Enforcement is Primary Marking Systems' reasoning behind creating eTWIST®. Too often an officer is stuck behind a Desk Hand Entering data from the day into backend and reporting systems when they could be out patrolling the streets or following up on other cases or duties. The average Police Agency receives about 100 cases per week with 25 of those needing evidence tracking taking officers an average of 2 hours to input into backends or handwrite on reports.
eTWIST® allows that officer to collect, enter, and scan that evidence in the field. Using the MC55/MC75 handheld they can enter all data about a case- Case Information, Suspects, Victims, Evidence, and Remarks. They can enter all data, take pictures, scan barcode labels to tag evidence and print Evidence Room Labels all on-the-go. Everything is stored on the handheld that can then be imported to the backend in a matter of seconds. If they need to make changes or updates they can do it on the Handheld and re-import or do it right in the backend. You can have multiple Victims, Suspects, Evidence, and Remarks with a picture for each Suspect/Victim and multiple pictures of Evidence with the option to GPS Location Stamp the picture if available for even more accuracy than the location specified in the location fields.
