iTicketing is an application designed specifically for iPhone. This application allowed Arkansas Children’s Hospital Security Department to issue parking citations using a hospital issued iPhone. The application would capture GPS coordinates, and a secure badge based login would capture the officer’s information who was issuing the citation. The officer could also take and attach as many images as he or she needed to support the citation. This application replaced an older Windows CE based app and had the following advantages. Previously, the security officer would need to have:
- Microsoft CE based handheld running a custom CE based application
- A digital camera for taking images of cars
- A cell phone for communication with dispatch
This application used on an iPhone replaced all three of those with this one device. The project was completed in 4 months and is credited with immense time savings and equipment costs (the Windows CE devices cost was over $2500).
