Hoboken, N.J., October 27, 2020 – Police Departments and Criminal Justice agencies are sitting on mountains of evidence, but the proprietary and siloed nature of this data makes it difficult to leverage the data to its fullest potential. To address this challenge, NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) today announced that it is launching the Evidencentral Marketplace, the first open, digital evidence management ecosystem of technology vendors designed to make it simpler, faster and more cost effective for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice agencies to bring evidence together, to accelerate case building, unearth hidden evidence and address evidence disclosure challenges.
Through the Evidencentral Marketplace, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice agencies gain access to a wide variety of best-of-breed technology solutions critical to the investigation process, all pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-certified to work with Evidencentral – NICE’s end-to-end digital transformation platform, which includes the NICE Investigate and NICE Inform solutions. Agencies spanning the entire Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice spectrum ultimately benefit from streamlined collection, analysis and sharing of digital evidence, and digital transformation of manual processes. Agencies also benefit from Evidencentral Marketplace’s ecosystem of integrated solutions through accelerated time-to-value, streamlined workflows and improved efficiency, and lower costs.
Technology partners that join the marketplace can enhance the value of their solutions by making it easier for agencies to leverage their data in concert with other forms of digital evidence to investigate, solve and prosecute crimes.
“Building on the success of Evidencentral, we’re now introducing this one-of-a-kind marketplace to capitalize on synergies between NICE and other market-leading technology companies in the Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice sectors,” said Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE. “NICE’s open, collaborative ecosystem approach to digital evidence management is markedly different from other one-size-fits-all approaches which tend to limit agencies to selecting a particular vendor’s suite of solutions, and manually performing investigative work in data silos.”
The Evidencentral Marketplace is open to a range of law enforcement technology partners. Marketplace categories include companies that provide RMS (Records Management Systems), CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch), Body Worn Video, CCTV, Interview Room Recording, Crime Scene Media, 911 Audio Recording, Forensic Analytics, Video Management and Analytics, and Court Case Management. Virtually any upstream or downstream application that creates or processes digital evidence is a potential candidate to join the Evidencentral Marketplace.
Benefits for Technology Partners
Technology partners participating in the Evidencentral Marketplace gain access to a wide range of tools and resources to integrate their solutions into Evidencentral. This enables their critical evidence data to be combined with data from other best-of-breed digital evidence solutions to help Law Enforcement automate investigations, accelerate case closure, and simplify evidence sharing with other criminal justice stakeholders. By enhancing the value of their solutions, technology partners can grow business opportunities and expand mindshare in the global Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice communities. Technology partners accepted into the marketplace will have access to integration development, testing and certification assistance leveraging skilled NICE technical resources. Additionally, NICE will offer a broad array of marketing opportunities ranging from co-branded webinars and presentations to lead generation/referral programs and sales training.
