First installed for the Maine State Police in 1977, the FOX V system introduced core technology still in use to this day. Targeting UNIX systems, we introduced the OpenFox® system in 1994. Since then, the footprint of the OpenFox® system has grown to well over half the states of the union, a market presence unmatched by any other single organization in the history of the industry.

We are an engineering firm at heart. We develop real-time mission-critical systems that are central to the success of law enforcement and public safety. Our focus is on developing systems that are reliable over the long-term and flexible to meet the needs and regulations of our customers.
We do not build our products on top of open source application platforms that won’t be supported 10 years down the road, or that will be dropped in favor of the next best thing. We build our own application platforms, and we build them with a core of robust and flexible technology.
Our average customer has been a customer for over 16 years, and we have only lost 1 customer over our history. Not only do our customers love us, but they are also the best and the brightest from the law enforcement and public safety community! Our customers include the Nlets President and 1st Vice-President, 6 out of 8 Nlets board members, and leaders on the Compact Council and NCIC Committees.

You will see the tangible impact of delivering software, get to meet the officers who benefit from the systems we develop, and meet our customers face-to-face when we host our annual User Conference here in the Chicago area.
