- Living without good technology can be difficult. Especially when you're trying to manage and keep very important records.
That's why the Vilas County Sheriff's Department made more than $52,000 in upgrades. The new server houses more than 99% of the Sheriff's Office's records. After 5 years, the old server needed to go.
"After that it starts costing you in maintenance. So it was time for us to upgrade., and in order for us to move forward with the new enhancements of Spillman 6.2, we needed to upgrade our software and our hardware," says Chris Kamps, Systems Administrator.
The server is also used by EMS, fire departments, and the county jail. The hardest part was the time it took to install and transfer old data. But once it was done, the department started seeing the benefits.
"...All the enhancements that it's going to give us. There is some learning curves. We'll go through the training and I'm really excited," said Camps.
Implementing the new server is still in its beginning stages. But the department already created two new jobs to work with the new system.
