Chief Information Officer (CIO), CCAP
In the late 1980s, and on behalf of the counties of Pennsylvania, CCAP worked with the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency to manage several grants that allowed for the development of three separate law-offender case management systems for county departments. Under this arrangement, identical information on the same offenders often existed in all three databases— Adult Probation, Jail, and District Attorneys. While it was an improvement to have this data available through technology, many law officials did not have access to all three systems and sometimes had to contact other departments for information. County personnel were also required to manually re-key data as they received it from other systems.
SIMPLIFYING DATA ACCESS
To resolve the situation, CCAP searched for an efficient method to bring all law offender data together into one system. By building such a system, CCAP hoped to eliminate manual paperwork while also simplifying data access and lowering the burden of departments having to help each other.
EASY DATA MAPPING
After identifying Microsoft Dynamics® CRM as the system for consolidating the offender information, CCAP then turned to Scribe as the solution for importing the data from the case management databases. The CCAP staff quickly discovered how easy it is to use Scribe for linking data elements from the various databases to Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Users see field names they are accustomed to when mapping the data, which makes the process run more smoothly.
