Samsung DeX (short for Desktop Experience) is radically changing the paradigm of in-vehicle computers used by law enforcement agencies. With DeX, officers can achieve the functionality of an in-vehicle computer by simply docking their Galaxy smartphone into a touchscreen monitor and rugged keyboard. Then, when the officer leaves the vehicle to attend a scene on foot, they take their smartphone with them and maintain connection to the computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and other critical information.
DeX-connected smartphones can also replace in-station computers, meaning a single device can now support an officer in the vehicle, in the field and in the station. This allows an officer to benefit from the sheer utility of a smartphone and have full access to department data, regardless of assignment or proximity to a patrol vehicle.
Here are nine ways that DeX improves operational efficiency and empowers public safety officers.
1. Fully Capable In-Vehicle Operations
2. Access to Core Agency Apps
3. Ergonomics Are Improved
4. Mobile-First Approach Means Officers Stay Connected
5. Replaces Desktop Computers for In-Station Work
6. Workflow Is Streamlined
7. Delivers Value and Flexibility
8. Mobile-Only Simplifies Device Management
9. Capabilities Continue to Expand
A large number of major public safety software providers are working closely with Samsung to take full advantage of the mobile-first approach and provide first responders with a mission-critical level of utility and functionality. This collaborative approach is quickly advancing the concept of a connected officer, allowing agencies to harness the power of today's mobile technology and build on that foundation as new capabilities evolve.
This infographic demonstrates how Samsung DeX brings a whole new layer of opportunity to agencies that want to provide a powerful force multiplier to their field personnel.
