Clue – the world-leading investigation and intelligence software company – first started to work with Chorus Intelligence in 2021 on the Home Office Accelerated Capability Environment’s Economic Crime Campaign. The objective of the campaign was to coordinate a better understanding of the challenges and activities across government and the private sectors to enable industries to address problems and identify opportunities to develop. The campaign scenario-based environment explores existing technologies and how they could be ‘integrated and deployed to deliver rapid, cost-effective impact, focusing on the real challenges seen by investigators.’ Following the success of the campaign, the natural next step was to further develop the integration between the technology platforms.
The two providers will connect via an Application Programming Interface (API) that will allow the seamless, secure, transfer of data and intelligence. The collaborative development to improve systems interoperability will benefit law enforcement and other sectors with Clue supplying investigation, case management, and intelligence software and Chorus supplying data collection and analysis software. Integration and interoperability are vitally important in digital investigations with many different systems used to provide the edge to stay ahead of criminals. Data is often held in many different systems so joining them up and allowing the exchange of data between them saves time and ensures efficient working. It can also give confidence to analysts and investigators that they have explored all the data available to them, from a single location and using a single sign-on.
The integration will allow analysts to speed up the digital investigation process and equip them with the tools to stay ahead of criminal activities. Clue and Chorus work with most police forces and major agencies in the UK. The collaboration is set to bring new joined up capability and far more efficient investigations to thousands of analysts and investigators.
