icomedias has presented HybridForms for mobile policing together with Microsoft Germany at the GPEC 2016. In addition to the booth of Microsoft with the interactive large-format screen  Microsoft Surface Hub, HybridForms was also represented at the Mercedes-Benz booth in the new E-Class.

HybridForms – Mobile Business Forms for Police

HybridForms was shown in a mixed scenario with two devices and as well as online and offline:

  • Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Smartphone for quick mobile data capture
  • Microsoft Surface Tablet for more complex procederes and authentic biometric signatures with the digitizer – paper on glass

A particular innovation was showing HybridForms Police on the big integrated display of the instrument paneling in the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class with Continuum dock for smartphones, for full PC experience in the car with big screen content and bluetooth keyboard or mouse. No additional devices or displays are needed any more in the car.

The key benefit and security advantage: The police officer plugs in his personal device, completes the data in HybridForms – and when work is finished he simply disconnects his device and does not leave any data trails in the car.

Note to the following images: All photos are genuine and have not been manipulated. HybridForms was running on real equipment with full server backend and live synchronization.
