Fujitsu developed a bespoke application for Fixed Charge Offence Processing and undertook the assessment and selection of the hand-held solution and Camera solution.

Fujitsu managed the bespoke development of a mobile application running on the hand-held device selected and integrated this with FCPS. Fujitsu also managed the customisation of the Camera Scanning Product solution and integrated this with FCPS. 

The technical solution is primarily based on Microsoft's .Net technology, utilising many of its advanced features including .Net Remoting, load balancing and ADO .Net. The back end database is Oracle 9i running on the Solaris platform.

Fujitsu integrated FCPS with the existing PULSE system which is based on VB6. Additionally, we incorporated and extended the Kerberos based security infrastructure as used by the existing PULSE system.

An Garda Síochána (AGS) is Ireland's national police service. Today, An Garda Síochána as the national police service exercises all police functions in the country. It provides the state security services and all criminal and traffic law enforcement functions.
