May 25, 2004 By

ELGIN, Ill. -- The Department of Code Administration & Development Services for the city of Elgin, Ill., has chosen BIO-key International to provide real-time data access capabilities. Building inspectors and code enforcement officers will be using PocketBP and PocketCE developed by the company's Public Safety Division.

Elgin is a suburb of Chicago in Cook and Kane County, Ill., and has a population of nearly 100,000.

Building inspectors in the field will use wireless PDAs along with PocketBP (Building Permit) software to perform building inspections, issue permits and query databases by any combination of permit types, inspection type, dates, inspectors and locations.

Code enforcement officers, running PocketCE (Code Enforcement) on their wireless devices, will have real-time access to individual case files. They will be able to create and generate new case files, enter case violations and detail case actions and narratives from the field.
