Computer Projects of Illinois has been an Nlets strategic partner since 2004. Thanks to collaborative efforts between CPI and Nlets staff, dozens of CPI states are now able to support images. West Virginia recently gained the ability to share driver license photos with other states, and North Dakota recently began sending photos with Administrative Messages as part of the TIPS initiative.

What should states expect when they partner with CPI?

CPI's sole focus has been, and will continue to be, the law enforcement and criminal justice marketplace. CPI prides itself on the fact that all existing customers can be used as references.  This reputation stems from the fact that CPI focuses only on this market and expends all of its energies on the development, installation and maintenance of its software products.  CPI systems must always be 'state-of-the-art' and cost effective, as our customers expect nothing less than the most capability for their investment.  The result of our focus has been a very high degree of customer satisfaction.  CPI is the clear market leader in this industry.
