Danish software fledgling Imasoft is close to a market breakthrough with a product developed for police and prosecutors worldwide, reports financial daily newspaper Børsen. Imasoft has spent several years developing its CrimeSceneNet software, which can be used to document all aspects of a crime scene. The system is so effective that it can reportedly halve the time taken to process a criminal case.
Managing director of Imasoft Poul Bodeholt tells Børsen that he expects a commercial breakthrough in the first quarter with forecast revenues of 5 m (USD 1 m).
The focal point of CrimeSceneNet is a 360 degree photo of the crime scene where all components which are important to investigating the case can be connected to documents that form part of the investigation. The system has a user-friendly interface so beginners can use it with a minimum of training, and it comes with a wide range of options for displaying e.g. photos, documents, videos, audios, leads and evidence.
Imasoft software is based on Microsoft technology and the company recently participated in a Microsoft exhibition in Brussels for SMEs. Microsoft has also helped to open doors to authorities in France. Last year, the Danish IT billionaire Ib Kuneø acquired 50% of Imasoft through his company Consolidated.
"The collaboration with Microsoft has meant that we do not get any technical questions, and with Consolidated we have gained authority and greater reliability as a company," says Bodeholt.
CrimeSceneNet has been tested in Belgium, France and Miami, USA.
