pTools has announced the deployment of pTools Content Management Software (CMS) for the new enterprise Intranet for Lincolnshire Police Force in the UK. The project provides an essential upgrade to the existing Lincolnshire Police intranet and is designed to deliver current legislation and procedural guidelines to officers across the force.
pTools enterprise content management software is the leading independent CMS vendor for police force Internet, intranet and extranet systems running Microsoft SharePoint and is used by a number of UK forces including Derbyshire and Strathclyde Police.
The Lincolnshire Police Force believes the new pTools Intranet will provide:
- Significant improvements in current news and key management updates for all officers and staff;
- Quick access to electronic forms and police systems;
- Force-wide access to current legislation, procedural guides and other vital information;
- a streamlined publishing process with fully integrated security and audit trail.
Commenting on the new Intranet solution, James Drennan, IT Configuration Manager, Lincolnshire Police, said: “The pTools CMS delivers a significant upgrade to our intranet infrastructure and the .Net platform provides more robust integration with our existing police systems.”
Graham Lord, Website Development Officer, Lincolnshire Police added: “Our pTools intranet solution delivers a vital communications tool for Lincolnshire Police. It allows our officers and staff to be kept informed of current issues and easily access resources and police systems they use on a daily basis.”
Lincolnshire Police Force staff in IT and Communications worked with pTools to define the key requirements and to gain the necessary knowledge and training needed to deploy the new system with ease internally.
Speaking about the project, Managing Director of pTools Software, Tom Skinner, said: "We've been working with Police Force customers for a number of years to deliver content management solutions that match the content security and compliance needs of today’s police service. The Intranet for Lincolnshire Police is the latest development and demonstrates not only the strength of our software but also the ease with which IT professionals in the Force can deploy a successful solution."
