Imports data from county AS/400 system to speed interview process, and tracks drug test results and offender photos. Uses Crystal Reports for report generation. A new addition is a 'lite' version that runs on laptops and exchanges data with the main system to allow parole officers to conduct interviews out of the office.

Uses Tharo's EasyLabel ActiveX to print labels on Zebra barcode printers and Crystal Reports to print system status reports. Performs scheduled daily data updates from Oracle-based ERP system. This application is Citrix server based.

Also created a utility to watch the MOM error log in real-time to troubleshoot problems. Created an app I call REPORTER which is a data-driven dynamic menu application to front-end Crystal Reports. Users log in to the app and get menu choices of reports based on those that have been assigned by the administrator.
