“Nimbus has been an absolute life saver for our unit, and we could not be happier with the software. I continually find new ways the software has assisted us in streamlining our processes.”

Dallas Police Department

“When looking at the other options during our procurement process NIMBUS was the only tool that fully met our needs and was capable of managing investigations, evidence, forensics, and ISO accreditation.”

Law Enforcement Customer

“Prior to having NIMBUS, all aspects of our investigations were recorded and managed across multiple solutions such as email, spreadsheets and on employees’ devices. Having NIMBUS allows up-to-date, accurate and auditable recording of casework which has been game changing.”

Global Financial Services Customer

“We have a much improved overview on the current status of each ongoing investigation. The management of some several thousand data objects would not be possible without NIMBUS. Additionally, NIMBUS helps us standardise the required steps during an investigation to gain reproducible results and even automate certain tasks and therefore reduce our workload.”

Law Enforcement Customer

“I would absolutely recommend NIMBUS to other organisations for the complete management of their investigations. NIMBUS achieves the best results through standardisation and alignment to our existing processes and procedures.”
