Advisor Spotlight: Douglas Scott
Kaseware is honored to have an incredible team of advisors. Our advisors are leaders in their field, hailing from military, corporate and non-profit sectors, with both substantial domestic and global experience. Today we want to highlight another one of our long-standing advisors, Douglas Scott.
Scott has over 40 years of extensive law enforcement experience including serving as the Chief of Police for Arlington, the City of Fairfax and Fairfax County in Northern Virginia, as well as serving as the Assistant Inspector General for Program Integrity for the US Department of Interior Office of Inspector General. We are thrilled to have him on board!
In Scott’s own words, “Several years ago I was given a demo of Kaseware and heard the story of Kaseware’s founders. I was impressed enough by the system that I agreed to serve on the Kaseware Advisory Board. My background as a career law enforcement officer and as a Chief of Police for three different departments has been helpful for the company to understand how Chiefs and Police Departments assess software systems.”
“I believe Kaseware offers tremendous utility. Most agencies have to purchase multiple systems to replicate what Kaseware offers. I am extremely impressed by the Kaseware team who have made multiple upgrades to the system since the first time I saw it demonstrated. I recently told a fellow Chief of Police that if it was available when my last department was getting ready to purchase a new RMS, I would have strongly recommended that we purchase Kaseware. That’s something that I would not say unless I was a true believer. I have never seen a system with the power and utility of Kaseware. I believe it’s head-and-shoulders above the products offered by current system competitors.”
