One of the benefits of newer Voice Recording and Digital Evidence Management solutions is the ability to share resources across various Emergency Communication Centers, even across counties or regions.
Regionalized Recording can ensure:
- High reliability
- No single point of failure
- Appropriately sized solutions that can grow/be reduced as needed
- Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
- Lower overall IT expenditures
Hosted offerings allow multiple agencies to reduce costs by sharing a single a Voice Recording or Digital Evidence Management solution, while enabling only authorized access to each agency's content. This means that although it is more cost effective and easier to share information sources, strict agency controls are enacted to ensure chain of command is followed. Additionally, individual locations can choose to buy additional applications within their suite of products, without having to change the existing layout of shared resources.
