Criminal justice software specialist STL Technologies is further strengthening its established partnership with Microsoft by developing its latest application using the .NET framework to support UK police forces’ drive for efficiency savings, better governance and easier IT administration.

LiBiS.NET, STL’s evidential drink-drive testing product, is already used widely by UK police forces. The company is now extending LiBiS.NET so that it is faster, more secure, flexible and readily accessible.

STL developed and tested two concepts in Java and .NET, then selected the Microsoft platform because the proof of concept delivered a better user experience, notably through .NET’s user interface capabilities. The .NET framework enables STL to be more flexible in form creation, ensuring LiBiS.NET easily keeps pace with legislation changes.

Richard Perkins, sales and marketing director at STL Technologies, said: “We’re proud to be a longstanding Microsoft Gold Partner and are working closely with Microsoft to ensure that UK police forces can leverage any enterprise licence agreements that they enjoy.

“We’re convinced that offering new applications such as LiBiS.NET will deliver the improved value that police forces need, now and in the future.”

Andrew Hawkins, Worldwide Public Safety Solutions, Microsoft, added: “Criminal justice systems around the world face the same challenges as other public sector and private organisations. Solutions that simplify processes and ensure accuracy, such as LiBiS.NET, provide law enforcement officials with tools that can deliver substantial cost-savings and efficiencies.

“Trusted partners such as STL Technologies help police forces implement the right technologies to support operational effectiveness and we look forward to supporting STL more closely with our expertise and reputation for delivery of value through technology innovation.”

LiBiS.NET is a unique software package that facilitates compliance with the Department for Transport’s (DfT) drink-drive guidelines, ensuring that a robust case is presented in court. Easy to operate with a clear user interface that guides officers through evidential procedure, LiBiS.NET uses help text, user prompts and warnings to ensure procedural compliance and minimise the risk of error. LiBiS.NET interfaces to evidential breath-testing devices and custody software, helping to streamline process by reducing double keying and ensuring accurate data transfer.

Established 45 years ago, STL Technologies is a leading Microsoft Dynamics customer relationship management (CRM) expert, delivering valued ICT business solutions to the public and private sectors. The Suffolk-based company has designed, developed and implemented custody and case file build applications for some of the UK’s largest police forces.
