Public Safety

ERP Advisors Group (EAG) is one of the top independent enterprise software advisory firms for Public Safety.

Fire and police organizations commonly employ more than just financial software to automate their processes. The most common applications we have assisted with include RMS, Patient Care Records, Incident Reporting, Crew Scheduling, Supply Chain Logistics, Fleet Management, Computer-Aided Dispatch, Human Capital Management, and Life Safety.

We have helped numerous organizations with requirements gathering, RFP creation, software selection, government purchasing process, board presentations, and implementation project management — ensuring municipality money is spent wisely.

There is no other software advisory firm in the country with the fire-specific RMS experience we have.

Implementation Project Management

After finalizing your public safety RMS software and services contracts, EAG stays with you to oversee your implementation until you successfully go live.  We will oversee integrations, data migration, change management, budgets, design and configuration, walkthroughs, training, testing, go-live cutover and will provide executive and project sponsor support throughout the duration of your project.

RMS Data Migration

We assist with all components of data migration: extraction, cleansing, transformation and loading into your new system to ensure you have complete confidence in the accuracy of your data at go live.

Why Public Safety Organizations Upgrade Their RMS Software

Surveys across all of our Public Safety clients reveal the most common reasons why they need new RMS to automate their business:

  • The administrative side of inspections deals with a lot of paper due to not having reliable electronic systems, resulting in extra work and taking extra time.
  • Tracking of purchases, inventory, assets, equipment, maintenance, and fleet is minimal and manually done, resulting in more errors and missing data.
  • Lack of efficient software and workflow around Incident Reports results in late reports that take extra time to get Incidents completed.
  • Truck checks are done manually and with paper and pen which is inefficient.
  • No central dashboard for incident updates, tracking, communication, & status.
  • Tracking and repairs, fuel cost and annual cost of apparatus is manually tracked, resulting in inaccurate data.
  • RMS does not link with Hospitals delaying information getting to the hospitals and sometimes causing there to be missing information
  • Many processes are setup based on how they do things, not based on best practices, resulting in work arounds to get things done.
  • Organizations do not have access to mobile devices (toughbooks or tablets) on all apparatus, delaying report entry.
  • Scheduling & tracking of Inspections and inspectors is a cumbersome process with no automated features.
  • Budget output analytics are inaccurate. Poor tracking for facilities & equipment maintenance and repair.
ERP Advisors brought in professionals that were able to help us manage and work through an implementation of a pretty significant software change and act like a member of our team and like I said before can bridge that gap between our internal team and the vendor's implementation team and they did that very very well.

We negotiate tens millions of dollars of deals every year for our clients.  We provide contracts review on all terms and conditions, including software and services and every agreement embedded throughout the contract.  Our clients receive price protection for many years to come on their purchase.  While we don't guarantee it in writing, we normally save our fees on this step alone.
