Forensic Advantage® Systems Announces Upcoming Speaking Engagement at Microsoft’s Worldwide Public Safety Symposium


Midlothian, VA - March 17, 2011 - Forensic Advantage Systems, the global provider of laboratory information management systems will present industry case study to public safety and national security meeting attendees.


David Romig II president of Forensic Advantage Systems will present a client case study on crime laboratory backlog reduction through process automation at Microsoft’s Worldwide Public Safety Symposium which will be held March 22-24, 2011 at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond, Washington. The presentation will be delivered on Wednesday, March 23, 2011 from 1:00PM-1:30PM. The session will provide detailed information on the best practice methodologies and processes used for comparing and measuring the value of automating laboratory operations as compared to paper-based and other traditional methods.

The focus of the study is designed to present practical guidance and tools used to analyze the benefits of understanding the throughput of case loads, reduction of operational costs, increased visibility across lab disciplines and improved reporting capabilities. The quantitative values defined in the research culminate in the overarching goal of collecting accurate statistical data that can be applied to effective operational management as well as grants and other funding opportunities. Based largely on a case study from North Carolina’s State Bureau of Investigation the specific information includes the decision process, criteria setting, technology selection, implementation issues, and the effects upon the lab’s metrics. The data also highlights the importance of human innovation as it relates to system selection and use, ensuring data security, accuracy, and the engagement of all lab members, management and staff, who need to be aware of the critical issues that lead to making informed decisions from real time data. Key topics include:

•         Initial Reasons for Automation

•         Definition of Metrics

•         Goal Setting

•         Lower Pending Cases (Backlog)

•         Paper Elimination

•         Calculation of Metrics - Cost per Case

•         Reporting and Grant Applications from LIMS Data

•         Achievement of Goals - Return on Investment
