12.5m Mi- ase,
Philadelphia, PA, 3 February 2009,
Business & Decision, the international Consulting and Systems Integration (CSI) Company,
specializing in Business Intelligence (BI), Customer Relationship Management
(CRM) and e-Business announces it has been awarded a $12.5m contract by the
Maryland Department of Public Safety & Correctional Services (DPSCS) to
implement its market leading, web-based, multi-agency case management solution,
Mi-Case to replace numerous information silos and legacy applications managing
‘offender case management’. Mi-Case will provide all DPSCS agencies with
accurate and timely access to integrated data captured throughout the lifecycle of
an offender from arrest, booking, pre-trial, incarceration, and through supervision.
It will also allow for information sharing with local law enforcement and other
criminal justice partners. Mi-Case will be used by all of DPSCS’ divisions to manage
the interaction with offenders in accordance with the State’s requirements of best
practice and to obtain management information and reports.
Ian Huckle, CEO Business & Decision UK (developers of Mi-Case) comments, “The
Maryland award affirms that the knowledge acquired and developed in the UK is
fully compatible with the needs of other countries, notably the US market. Mi-Case
revolutionizes the case management process, improving efficiency and quality, as
well as the effectiveness of follow-up care for offenders.”
The Mi-Case solution is a renowned and proven solution with over 30 deployments
in the UK, most of which are directly linked to the UK Home Office directives and
UK National Health Service (NHS) initiatives. The development of Mi-Case was
started seven years ago by Business & Decision. The solution is used to underpin a
multi- institutional approach to drug and alcohol abuse, local government, policing,
probation, healthcare and the court system. In Maryland, Mi-Case will be used
principally by DPSCS but can also be a single point of entry for offender data for
use by many of the State’s other criminal justice stakeholders. The solution is
renowned for its scalability and capacity to implement and enforce best practice
business rules of each particular client organization.
“There was a clear mandate to identify a solution to address the Department’s
needs and after detailed evaluation, Mi-Case was the choice over a variety of
competing products, based on the integration of the solution”, explains Robin
Kearon CEO, Business & Decision North America.
“As a joint initiative between the UK and USA, this success demonstrates the
ability of Business & Decision to cooperate on a worldwide basis to address large
scale projects. This contract places Business & Decision on an international level as
an integrator who can partner with the largest companies or administrations”, adds
Patrick Bensabat, CEO of Business & Decision Group.
