Why Kaseware

When asked “Why Kaseware?” Higgins had the following response:

“When the opportunity came to be an advisor at Kaseware, it was an easy yes. How can you say no to a group of incredibly talented people from different backgrounds? The ability to work in this group while creating a safer and smarter work atmosphere for law enforcement as well as the business world is a gift you get once in a lifetime.

Kaseware is a game changer for the industry. It provides the ability for investigators to get real-time data analytics along with a deep reach social media scrub while compiling all of the information in a customized, easy to follow dashboard. What used to take weeks gets done in minutes.

In particular, the ability to assess information and create lead streams in minutes when it would have taken weeks or months is invaluable. Think in terms of driving an Indy car as opposed to a Model-T… no comparison in performance or safety.”
