Accusoft Product Supports Imagery Concepts with m.i.l.k. Digital ID Software for Missing Children
Accusoft's ImagXpress SDK helps with the recovery of missing children
TAMPA, Fla. – January 22, 2013 – Accusoft, the leading provider of document, content and imaging solutions, today announces they will continue to support Imagery Concepts by providing the latest version of ImagXpress for use in their m.i.l.k.®, or Managing Information on Lost Kids, Digital ID software.
Imagery Concepts developed the m.i.l.k.® Digital ID software at the request of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and is the first recorded digital ID designed to aid in the recovery of a missing child. It provides parents and caregivers a convenient location to store a digital photo and identification information regarding their child. This vital data is stored in the privacy of the user's computer.
Since 2007, Accusoft has provided an integral component of the m.i.l.k. Digital ID. With the assistance of the ImagXpress imaging toolkit, parents can scan a copy of their child’s photo into their m.i.l.k. Digital ID. Thousands of parents have created a m.i.l.k. Digital ID for their children using the ImagXpress SDK.
Rob Rector, Vice President of Imagery Concepts states, "Our experience with Accusoft has been tremendous. ImagXpress has several pre-built key features that were needed for our software and its controls were easy to integrate. Our development team found that ImagXpress tools are very descriptive and intuitive. Our programmer's projects were greatly simplified due to Accusoft's numerous demos and ready-to-use samples. Accusoft's support team is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We plan on utilizing Accusoft development kits on all of our future imaging projects."
Law enforcement states that in a missing child situation, rapidly distributing a current photo can be the difference between a fast recovery and a prolonged search. Should a person become lost or missing, with just a click, their m.i.l.k. Digital ID can be printed or sent via email to the proper authorities and if necessary forwarded to NCMEC. If the proper criteria are met, the local authorities will initiate an Amber Alert. In the event of a national search, this photo and identification information can be broadcast to over 17,600 police departments and the vast database of NCMEC Poster Partner Program members. The m.i.l.k. Digital ID provides this critical information in an easy to distribute digital format and has been labeled "the first step in the Amber Alert®."
