PoliceBox has today launched its partner programme with Insight UK.

By partnering with Insight, PoliceBox will now be available to purchase through one of the UK’s biggest solutions providers. Insight is a major partner to the UK public sector, and a trusted technology provider to many police forces across the UK. Through partnering with Insight, PoliceBox will broaden its reach in UK policing significantly, where the use of PoliceBox and its associated SaaS platform will help to accelerate the digitisation of police forces.

Simon Hall, CEO and co-founder of PoliceBox states “In order to react more readily to the demand for PoliceBox, we are excited to launch this partnership with Insight UK. This will make PoliceBox more accessible to forces, by enabling them to acquire PoliceBox through a trusted partner which already has an existing relationship with most Forces.

Since the majority of PoliceBox enquiries are made by force’s looking at their broader digital transformation strategy, shifting towards a partner model made sense for us. Where forces are already investing in digital and mobile policing, PoliceBox can seamlessly provide the mobile component, with a next-generation, cloud-first and mobile-first proposition which is ready to integrate into existing national digital systems.”

Ian Mortimer, Head of Public Sector, adds: “Insight has built a reputation within the public sector as a trusted technology solutions provider, guiding organisations along their digital transformation journey.

“This partnership with PoliceBox underlines our commitment to helping organisations modernise and transform, by providing access to solutions across Digital Innovation, Cloud & Data Centre Transformation, Connected Workforce and Supply Chain Optimisation.”

 

Significant opportunity

Many forces use first- or second-generation mobile police applications which tend to be bespoke, “clunky”, difficult to adapt to new ways of working – and costly. The demand for a “next-generation” frontline digital mobility platform, which requires minimal investment in on-premise equipment and is charged for on a SaaS pay per, user per month basis, is strong. PoliceBox enables frontline officers to complete the majority of their duties from within one, intuitive app, in a cloud-based platform which is more readily interoperable with existing police systems. It is also more affordable than incumbent solutions – halving the operational cost, and significantly reducing integration costs to Force systems. PoliceBox provides the quickest and most flexible way for the frontline to bring the station with them, by putting many of the services previously only accessible at the station into the palm of their hands.
