Overall Satisfaction with PowerDMS

At our police department, we were struggling to manage forms and every officer had a different version of the form that they had saved or printed somewhere and there was no consistency. We also were using a printed policy and procedure manual which was not updated very often. The updates were printed and handed to each employee and we trusted them to remove the outdated policy and replace it, however not sure that got done. Now with the PowerDMS Solution, all employees (sworn and non-sworn), can easily search for any form, policy, contract, agreement, etc. and have full confidence they have the current version for increased consistency. We also use PowerDMS to document every employees training throughout the year and also through their career. Beyond that, we use PowerDMS to create courses, and assign certificates complete with tests and surveys on a variety of topics. I would highly recommend this product and am so glad that we found this company when we did. The onboarding process was very smooth and they held our hands as we developed "our" system. If you are on the fence, give this a try - you'll be glad that you did.
  • Forms Management - always one version that is current. Old version gets archived.
  • Policy Development - workflow approval processes built in
  • Training - Documentation of courses and required training hours
  • Easily search thousands of documents using simple keywords in the "Find Anything" box
  • Workflows and the ability to stop and restart an approval workflow.
  • Very easy to use program with good functionality.
  • Ease of use for all staff
  • Mobile App
  • Approval workflows for policy development
  • Ability to track all training and even has functionality for the officers to submit a training request directly to their supervisor for approval and it then proceeds up the chain of command.
  • We no longer print our policy manual.
  • Policies are always kept current. If there is an update or change made, it is available immediately for all.
  • Our officers have State mandated training requirements that we can easily manage, track and submit to the State to verify compliance.

This software is very well suited for law enforcement agencies of all sizes from 5 to 5000 officers. There is a mobile app that allows officers to quickly and easily search while out in the field or on a call. They can quickly review a policy, locate a form, pull up a map and much more using either the mobile app or the desktop application.

Using PowerDMS

  • Forms Management
  • Training
  • Policy Approval and Accountability
  • Maintain current agreements, contracts, and MOU's
  • Push out training that can easily be completed by the staff in their own time, automatically graded, and certificates automatically assigned upon successful completion.
I don't know what we would do without this program. It has greatly improved our efficiencies and even professionalism.
