LexisNexis® Announces Strategic Relationship with iyeTek to Launch
LexisNexis® eCrash Solution
October 18, 2011 — Law enforcement agencies benefit from automated distribution of automobile crash reports online
LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced a strategic relationship with iyeTek, a leading software development company that creates mobile and handheld software solutions for law enforcement agencies. LexisNexis has developed a unique automobile crash report management solution that provides electronic capture, distribution and analysis of automobile crash information called LexisNexis® eCrash.
"LexisNexis eCrash represents the combined effort of our two companies, providing law enforcement agencies with capabilities to improve public safety and streamline the workflow process as it relates to the collection and distribution of crash reports," said Bill Madison, senior vice president and general manager, Insurance, LexisNexis. "The relationship leverages the core competency of LexisNexis' IT infrastructure along with iyeTek's innovative software designed specifically for the Public Safety sector, providing a no-cost solution to law enforcement that will free up valuable resources at a time when every budget is being scrutinized for cost savings. By making this information more readily available to the market, this initiative is a benefit for all interested parties."
"State and local governments continue to face significant budgetary constraints," said Rishi Sood, Research VP, Gartner. These organizations are prioritizing IT solutions that can deliver cost containment, cost voidance, revenue maximization, or revenue generation. Moreover, state and local government CXOs are seeking newer technology solutions that can streamline government service delivery, effectively reducing the cost of government operations and making programs more effective."
"Fulfilling crash report requests can be both time-consuming and costly at a time when local agency and government resources are limited. Using LexisNexis eCrash, law enforcement agencies can offer electronic distribution of crash reports through a secure online website without agency IT involvement," said Salman Anwar, managing partner, iyeTek. "Involved parties can quickly and efficiently order and retrieve their crash reports, improving their insurance claims experience."
LexisNexis eCrash captures the information easily via electronic collection options or can utilize digitized options from LexisNexis for agencies who are not currently utilizing electronic methods. It then provides officers with an exchange of information card to supply to involved parties and automatically reports to state and other agencies. Additionally, LexisNexis eCrash gives law enforcement agencies the ability to:
- Simplify crash report data entry, storage, access and distribution, while maintaining existing revenue streams
- Eliminate manual handling, save time, reduce clerk costs and increase administrative efficiency
- Improve service to the public by allowing involved parties to purchase reports online, 24/7
- Free up agency staff to handle more important duties, dramatically decreasing walk-in and mail report requests, and eliminating the agency's need to input crash data
- Improve agency's investigative strength by providing easy access to their accident/crash reports and those of other participating agencies
LexisNexis is participating in the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference & Expo, held in Chicago, October 22-26, 2011. Experts will demo LexisNexis eCrash for law enforcement agencies on the exhibit floor at Booth #1617.
