Offline usage

Work at remote sites

KMD PlassData DVI makes it possible to register data on a computer, tablet or mobile phone even at remote disaster sites without internet connection.

Standardized data exchange

Easy data exchange with other databases

KMD PlassData DVI makes it fast and easy to exchange data between different databases via XML or PDF files.

Work in your preferred language

KMD PlassData DVI allows DVI teams to work together with ease, even if they do not speak the same language.

Additional benefits

Fully integrated with INTERPOL DVI 2018 forms

KMD PlassData DVI is the only commercially available DVI system which is fully integrated with INTERPOL’s DVI forms. A case in the system consists of form fields similar – but not identical – to the paper-based INTERPOL DVI forms as we have added computer functionality not available to the paper-based system. Because screen pages replicate the printed INTERPOL DVI forms users are not in doubt about where to register data in KMD PlassData DVI. Therefore, users who only update data in KMD PlassData DVI just need a limited number of training sessions before they are conversant with the software.

Remote and On-Site Support

We offer second level support
(online/e-mail/phone) to our
customers.
We also offer two kinds of
on-site support:
1. Emergency on-site support provided
at a disaster site
2. Technical on-site support
independent of a disaster. In this case
our experts will assist the authorities to
ensure they are technically prepared
to handle the large amount of information
on missing persons and unidentified
bodies received in the aftermath of a
disaster.

Continuous development

We continuously develop KMD PlassData DVI in close collaboration with INTERPOL and DVI teams all over the world. This way we ensure that the needs of our customers and the INTERPOL standards are met.
