ARMS offers several options for importing and exporting data. These modules can be used to exchange data from Court Systems, Student Information Systems, Incident Management Systems, Mapping Systems and other information systems. ARMS offers an open database, which allows for simple import/export of .csv or XML file types.
1.Information Exchange System (IES)
ARMS IES allows your agency to import data from other information systems. Our experience in moving data enabled us to design a very robust and generic module. With ARMS IES, your agency can easily import/ export information into ARMS on a recurring schedule from student information systems, court/judicial systems, jail management and other information management systems. The utility is a standalone application and is not installed as part of the ARMS suite.
The following are just a few of the fields that can be exchanged:
- Contact Information
- Restraining Orders
- Parking citations
- Parking permits
- Parking transactions
2. Global Justice XML.
Global Justice JXDM is an XML standard designed specifically for criminal justice information exchanges; providing law enforcement, public safety, prosecutors, public defenders and the judicial branch with a tool to effectively share data and information in a timely manner. Through the use of a common vocabulary, Global JXDM enables access from multiple sources and multiple applications. ARMS makes it possible for agencies to participate in any local, regional or national data share that accepts data using the Global Justice XML data model. Along with Global Justice XML (GJXML), we can import/export data using the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).
A few specific data shares that our customers contribute to include:
- FBI N-DEx
- Forensic Logic LEAP Network (formerly known as IBM CopLink)
- SWISS (MA specific)
- OLLEISN (OH specific)
The following are a few of the goals achieved by participating in data exchanges:
- Increasing global officer safety by sharing intelligence
- Reducing redundant data entry and avoiding human error during data entry
- Improving workflow of the overall criminal justice/student judicial system in the local community
3. ARMS Data Port
With the ARMS Data Port Process, your agency can import data from current or past RMS systems. When moving to ARMS, your agency has the option to export data in .csv or XML files from other systems and have your ARMS representative import that data into the appropriate fields in ARMS.
