The Advocate - Victim Management Software
"The Advocate" Victim Management Software began over five years ago when a Victim Advocate complained about changing letter format on an antiquated database. The advocates got together and directly influenced the design of the software. Our feedback during the development stage was received in the form of frustration and confusion. After several months of contouring the product, we could slowly see this frustration turn to acceptability.
The finished product, "The Advocate", has become an integral part of that office. We feel that within the past few years there have been many breakthroughs, but we also see in this program many more breakthroughs yet to be discovered.
Many states are implementing a Victim’s Bill of Rights. Oregon, in particular, has put forth Oregon Constitution Article 1 Sections 42, 43. An excerpt is listed below:
(a) The right to be present at and, upon specific request, to
be informed in advance of any critical stage of the proceedings held in open
court when the defendant will be present, and to be heard at the pretrial
release hearing and the sentencing or juvenile court delinquency disposition;
(b) The right, upon request, to obtain information about the convictions, sentence, imprisonment, criminal history and future release from physical custody of the criminal defendant or convicted criminal equivalent information regarding the alleged youth offender or youth offender;
That's a tall order, and may be overwhelming for some offices. “The Advocate” database was designed from the ground up to make your advocates more efficient. With this program, your agency will rise to meet the requirements of victim notification and statistics reporting.
|Easy-to-operate graphical interface. Visual cues will alert the user to the possible duplicate entries, ultimately reducing time spent on data entry tasks.|
|Submit statistics without counting on fingers! When your personnel enter victim data and services provided, statistics for any time period can be calculated. This information can then be used for crime-trend analysis, grant writing and VOCA and SVAA reporting.|
|Headache-free licensing with an “unlimited client”
access. This means that there are no costly “per seat” charges. Your
package will include one server installation and a “user” package. You
may install and connect as many users within your office as needed.
