The explosion of mobile devices around the world provides a unique opportunity for law enforcement, security & defence agencies to partner with mobile network operators and more effectively combat crime by leveraging mobile location intelligence.

However, these government agencies cannot depend upon the device location technology (e.g. GPS, apps) which can be inconsistent, unreliable, disabled or tampered with. What is needed is the ability to locate mobile users without relying on them or their devices.

The Highest accuracy location intelligence worldwide- Audited 

Creativity Software is a global leader in mobile network location intelligence. Our solution “CS LocationWise” is a Location-Based Services (LBS) platform that provides real-time, historical and mass location intelligence, without relying on the device. It delivers against the highest and strictest network location accuracy requirements in the world – for instance in Colombia – with consistent and audited accuracy.

It is a standards-based software solution that encompasses the Gateway Mobile Location Center (GMLC), Serving Mobile Location Center (SMLC) and Bulk (Passive) nodes for 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks. It extracts data from the network and uses highly precise algorithms to locate all mobile phones, with patented CS algorithms to significantly improve accuracy.

Non-intrusive solution that works for any mobile phone, anytime, anywhere, on any network

CS LocationWise is a non-intrusive solution that works for any mobile device, on any network technology and their MVNOs, at any time and anywhere – even in dense urban environments, indoors or outdoors, anywhere in-country or overseas. It integrates with 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G core and radio networks, using the device and SIM identifications (MSISDN, IMSI or IMEI) to provide high accuracy location data. It delivers location information whenever a device is switched on, without the knowledge or permission of the target as nothing needs to be installed on the device.

End-to-end location intelligence with map-based visual application 

CS LocationWise can be used with our map-based application “CS TrackWise” for an end-to-end location intelligence solution offering:

  • Individual and mass location, with real-time tracking as well as historical view of the target location information
  • Geo-fencing, alerting and analytics features
  • An interface that enables easy set-up of multiple targets, visualisation and management of location information

Security and unparalleled flexibility 

Our solution supports encrypted data, ensuring that the data is duly secure. It also offers unparalleled flexibility. It is deployed on the mobile network and can be accessed by multiple authorised Law Enforcement Agencies; it can also be deployed for single mobile networks; or be centrally deployed to cover all Operators in a country.

Use Cases

Law Enforcement Use Cases

CS LocationWise helps Law Enforcement Agencies to identify security threats, prevent crime, stop crime in action, and apprehend criminals by enabling multiple use cases, including:

Track and monitor targets in real time, with high accuracy

Generate proximity alerts that are triggered when 2 known targets approach each other

Leverage historical data to gain more intelligence and gather evidence

Enable mass location: Identify and track all subscribers within an area, at any time

Create geo-fences to secure sensitive areas and borders

Monitor international movements – inbound and outbound

CS TrackWise

A Map-based Application to Visually Track and Monitor Mobile Devices

CS TrackWise is a rich, powerful monitoring application with sophisticated geofencing, real-time tracking and alerting features. It provides a visual map-based user interface that makes it easy to obtain and present location data to monitoring officers.

CS TrackWise allows Law Enforcement and Government Agencies to visually locate and track one or multiple targets in parallel. It offers both live tracking and replay of historic movements. In addition, the location data collected can be analysed to help detection and prosecution of illegal activities.

CS TrackWise is a complete solution that has been designed with speed and ease-of-use in mind. Visual trails on a map show the location and trajectory of targets. Quick reference menus can provide the status of all targets at a glance. The information can be organised logically into different cases and projects. Folders can be created with specific permissions based on the operator’s security classification. Alerts can be set for various events, such as proximity to a specific area or Point Of Interest (POI).

CS TrackWise can be delivered alongside Creativity Software’s proven CS LocationWise for an end-to-end Location Intelligence solution or provided as a standalone interface to integrate with third party systems.
