A quiet technology revolution in the UK has been changing the way that police officers on the beat and hospital nurses access and record information, using handheld electronic notebooks that bring large time and cost savings.
This revolution began as a University of Glasgow research programme and led to the creation of a successful spin-out company, Kelvin Connect. Acquired in 2011 by the UK’s largest provider of communications for emergency services, Kelvin Connect has grown to 30 staff.
Its Pronto systems are now in use by 10% of UK police forces and nursing staff in several UK hospitals.
