Choosing the rightevidence management solution?
We are already using another vendor’s application. Would our existing data move to ERIN?
Give us your data and we will convert it. We are specialists in this. As long as it’s in a standard format such as .csv files, or if you have the format for the data, we can move it to ERIN in a MS SQL database.
We need to track some special data for our cases. How would we do that with ERIN?
ERIN7 allows for full screen customization for various user types, such as Investigators or Administrators. You can easily add new fields, change the labels on existing fields, and even set the order of fields on the screen.
Do I have to use your hosted (cloud) model or can I use my own server?
Either one! We offer the same system both ways. While we feel our hosted SaaS system using MS Azure government offers the most secure option available, we understand your organization may have other requirements. We consult with you to help set the system up in the most efficient manner possible.
What hardware do I need?
There is no requirement for special hardware to access ERIN, just an internet connected device and web browser. For true productivity you will want to have a barcode scanner and a label printer. Any bar code scanner capable of reading Code128 bar codes will work with ERIN7. We recommend a scanner that can also read 2D bar codes including QR and PDF417, the latter of which is the type of bar code found on the back of US driver’s licenses.
What operating systems and web browsers do you support?
ERIN7 is a MS Windows, .NET Core application that is compatible with any modern browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari.
Will I be secure and compliant?
ERIN7 was designed for digital and physical evidence handling, right from the start, not bolted on later. Add in our secure chain of custody with our audit log that tracks everything done in the system by every user, and using MS Azure Government, it becomes one of the most secure and compliant systems available.
What about upgrades and support?
At ERIN Technology, we don’t charge for costly updates, add-ons, or other methods that take away from planned resources. All software modules are included and clients who are either on our hosted system or on maintenance at their site, have no restrictions or limits. Compare that to the cost of our competition!
Where is my data stored?
If you choose to use our hosted (cloud) version of ERIN7, your database and digital evidence will be encrypted and in one of the safest locations possible, Microsoft's Azure government cloud. "MS Azure Government is an isolated Azure Region designed to allow US government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. Multiple geographic regions allow you to remain resilient in the face of most failure modes, including natural disasters or system failures”.
