L-Tron proud to sponsor Luncheon


L-Tron Corporation is proud to sponsor the NYPWA Summer Conference 2017 annual luncheon. The luncheon will take place on Monday, July 17th from 12:30pm – 1:15pm in Saratoga rooms 2 & 3.

L-Tron offers two solutions to support caseworkers, social workers and family court judges, allowing them to spend more time with the families and children in their care. The OSCR360 Solution allows you to objectively capture entire scenes and a chain of events in 360 degrees. Bring the facts of the case to life using supporting multimedia evidence files to tell the family’s story. The OSCR360 Solution allows caseworkers to better document and create walk-through presentations of the homes and families. This can provide invaluable evidence to judges, social workers and law enforcement..

L-Tron also offers ChildFirst, a mobile solution for DSS, CPS and APS caseworkers. This purpose-built, easy to use solution drastically reduces the paperwork burden and improves caseworker safety. This provides more time to focus on what’s important – the children and families whose lives are touched on a daily basis.
