Executive Information Services (EIS) announced today that it has completed the installation of a new public safety Jail Management (JMS) and Law Records Management (RMS) system(s) for the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, South Carolina – and that the agency is in Live operations with both systems. The new system includes the EIS enterprise JMS and integrated RMS-2 system, with a wide collection of interfaces and data exchanges.
Charleston County is one of the fastest growing Counties in the State, and the Sheriff's Office is one of the largest full-service Sheriff's Offices in the State of South Carolina, and serves the third-most populous County. Since 1988 the agency has been led by Sheriff J. Al Cannon, Jr., and currently employs more than 900 professional providing law enforcement services. The Sheriffs office also operates the County jail, with inmate population rating of 1,917 inmates.
Faced with increasing reporting and administrative management requirements associated with daily operations, the Charleston County Sheriffs needed a software provider capable of meeting their existing requirements and providing an application that would adapt to the way they do business. The goal of the project was to achieve greater operational efficiencies and enhanced internal communications, resulting in better service to the citizens of Charleston County. The Charleston County Sheriffs opted to implement the fully integrated RMS-2 Records management system supporting integration with the EIS Jail Management System as a total solution. The EIS family of products is a fully developed suite of software applications designed for the specific needs of public safety agencies and offers an easy-to-use and comprehensive solution. The applications are built on modern Microsoft technology.

The new Records system is an N-Tired, service oriented application operating on a fully-distributed Microsoft Windows® network environment. Built on the latest Microsoft .NET technology, RMS-2 offers a seamless flow of information between applications that tie all agency information together.
EIS's reporting capabilities and WorkFlow Management solutions directly support the Sheriff’s daily operations and provided a solid basis to evaluate operations and perform response time and crime analysis. With "Records-in-the-Field" capabilities" deputies are provided access to the full suite of agency data from the field, and helps save time and eliminate redundant data entry. The new EIS RMS-2 is helping to consolidate data operations within the Sheriff’s Office and replaces capabilities previously provided through multiple applications products.
