Ironside’s IronShield predictive policing platform gives police departments the tools and knowledge they need to anticipate criminal behavior and proactively prevent crime. It utilizes powerful predictive models tailored for each community’s unique geography, weather, and history right from the start through its core module for hot spot policing, producing intuitive visual map displays of where crime is most likely to occur thus arming officers with the facts they need to know with certainty when and where incidents are most likely to happen during their patrols and what activities or individuals to watch for.

IronFund takes the mystery out of the fundraising process and lets you know with certainty that every donation call you make will be productive. It goes beyond simply gathering data on prospective contributors, instead turning that data into powerful, actionable predictions that show you which of your prospects are most likely to donate. Once these predictive models are established, IronFund links their results back into your business intelligence environment to create a centralized reporting hub that tracks past, present, and future in a single location. This sets up a system that is continuously refining itself and bringing you more and more solid leads.
