NQRY™ specialises in next generation investigative tools and effective case management solutions for law enforcement and public safety organisations. The software has been shaped from concept to creation by end users, with an emphasis on modern, easy to use and adaptable designs.
NQRY was established to commercialise, deliver and support technologies developed within the Integrated Law Enforcement stream of the Data to Decisions CRC. This stream focused on technologies and tools to provide investigators, prosecutors and analysts the ability to collate and assess data and conduct investigations more efficiently and with access to diverse data.
The result? NQRY delivers systems built from the ground up to meet the practical, real world
needs of investigators and analysts, while drawing on innovative research in intelligent search,
visualisation and data analytics.
Built with Investigators for Investigators.
CaseWalls™ is a digital record management system centred around cases, investigations and information gathering - which prioritises intuitive, user-centric design and ease of adoption by new users. CaseWalls™ was developed from the outset in close collaboration with investigators and analysts - to assist agencies in the gathering of information from a range of sources and file types, to assist in the management and tasking of personnel, improve documentation of case decisions and outcomes, and organise evidence for prosecutions.
With intended use by public safety agencies, the software design facilitates secure information sharing within teams working across cases. CaseWalls™ enables users to collect and curate information faster than conventional and legacy processes and systems, while also providing users with powerful search and discovery functions and efficient, tailorable visualisations.
Investigators have become accustomed to simple and intuitive, yet powerful user experiences through modern day search engines and social media platforms. CaseWalls™ is focused on providing the same level of user experience so that investigators feel comfortable and familiar with the software.
Exportable digital briefs can be generated quickly and easily based on investigation content that has been tagged for a brief. This efficiency speeds up the process of conviction. CaseWalls™ also provides support for disclosure management.
By using a centralised portal, CaseWalls™ provides easy search and discovery functionality which is streamlined and efficient, ensuring any information is not overlooked.
CaseWalls™ allows investigators to pursue lines of enquiry that are tied to obtaining relevant evidence on the offence and person of interest they are relevant to.
NQRY has worked collaboratively with public safety organisations to develop an Enterprise Search tool with a focus on a fast, reliable and intuitive search capability. A key challenge for security and public safety agencies is their data stores are comprised of multiple legacy and modern systems that silo information - making information discovery a time consuming and very manual process. There is also a need to make sense of a variety of unstructured data and make it available for analysts and investigators.
This led to the release of NQRY Enterprise Search, able to ingest from a range of customisable and organisation-wide data sources including email, file systems, SharePoint and entity stores – and with extensive, dynamic volumes of data. The search solution provides a simple and familiar “one box search” interface together with advanced search and filtering, and all with device-independent access. The search tool is scalable to meet performance demands for large organisations.
NQRY develops custom connectors for other data stores – including third party sources, and has designed the search tool as a flexible platform for ongoing evolution and future enhancement and customisation.
The Search Portal supports both simple (“one box”) and complex querying functions. The portal is accessible through any modern web browser, including mobile devices, and is backwards compatible with legacy browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.
Users can search through all data – not only document metadata, but also the text inside documents. This includes compound document types. NQRY provides all the complex search parameters expected of a modern tool – including Boolean searches, fuzzy matches that ignore misspellings and find alternate spellings, and phonetic searches.
All search data is protected with record level security. Records in the search index are protected based on the users or roles that have permission to view the underlying data source. The search tool also provides full auditing logs for access to the tool, for search users and administrators.
Each organisation has a unique set of data and workflow requirements. NQRY’s investigative tools are built for flexibility and efficient customisation to individual needs. NQRY’s team will ensure the solution fits the customer's needs.
NQRY has capability and applied expertise in elements of data curation, entity resolution and search technology. This capability enables NQRY to offer Consulting Services in Search and Discovery and other elements of data analytics for the public safety and security communities.
NQRY™ leverages leading edge discovery and visualisation capabilities within its investigative tool kit, and continues to enhance the solutions through commercialisation of technologies first developed within the Data to Decisions CRC.
