Adivid Technologies: Making Police Force Tech-savvy

CIO Vendor Police departments in India have traditionally been slow adopters of technology. It is primarily because of the age old bureaucratic practices and legacy systems, which are still being used in police departments. Although, with the advent of new technologies, many operational procedures of policing are becoming paperless, there is an urgent need for transforming policing with a holistic and objective oriented approach, rather than digitizing individual processes. Hence, police departments are looking for innovative technology solutions that can be integrated with their conventional systems and simplify their daily operations, rather than complicating it with incomprehensible technology implementation.

Adivid Technologies, based in Nashik, Maharashtra, is providing police departments with such a platform called Third I and other solutions. Having spent more than three years working extensively with Police Departments, Adivid team has identified the existing challenges and opportunities. As per its experience, a majority of Police force is involved in reporting, paperwork, collecting data through multiple channels, maintaining and retrieving it. Though it is an essential practice, it involves a lot of monotonous effort to compile hundreds of reports on a daily basis, ultimately leading to lesser number of personnel on field, for their core service to detect and prevent crimes.

Adivid team also delved deeper into another major aspect of policing which is Surveillance and Monitoring. The team found that in current scenario, Police Control Room dedicates 15-20 people to continuously coordinate and track the location of all the police station vehicles, beat marshals, Nirbhaya mobiles etc. over the wireless device on hourly basis and whenever any incident occurs, all the nearby vehicles are ordered to reach at the venue. The underlying problem with this method is unnecessary noise over wireless, no way to authenticate accurate location of vehicles or any other information, usage of rudimentary technologies with no way to customize.
With its Third I MIS (Management Information System) and other modules, Adivid Technologies has worked towards solving the redundancies in regular day-to-day proceedings of police departments, the Information & Technological gaps present, and the lack of Data Centralization & Analytics which subsequently hamper administration’s ability to make real time informed decisions. Currently, more than 9000+ Police Personnel across 4 cities and 4 districts and 15000+ citizen users are using Third I and other modules developed by Adivid Technologies. Powered by Automation and AI, Third I enables Information Management & Data Visualization and Improved Communication.

Explaining the viability of Adivid’s solutions, Kovid Sawla, CEO of the company says,” All our modules require very minimal infrastructure (only smartphone & desktop mostly); e.g. instead of RFID, or tracking device, we provide alternative such as QR Codes, Mobile Apps etc. Thus, our solutions are viable and feasible for Police Departments.” Adivid Technologies has incorporated multiple techniques and algorithms for various analytics, prediction and recommendation based on past crime data to generate various Charts, Statistics and assessment, generate heatmaps, identify Crime/Accident Hotspots, Patterns, Recommendations, auto alerts system etc. which can greatly help decision makers to take directed and insightful action.

Recently, Adivid Technologies has been selected for statewide deployment (Maharashtra) of its Data Analytics Module. “We are in a process of engaging in more than 75 percent of police proceedings. In a short span of time, we aim to make policing completely paperless and tech savvy.
