Application was capable of sending push notification, SMS message, and email alert as well as updating the official State of New Jersey website with an emergency alert message and a public RSS feed for other local and state agencies to use for their emergency management systems.
  • Document Management System designed for long term records retention that met New Jersey State Document Archival and Records Retention standards. System allowed 21 NJ Counties and many other local municipalities to easily scan paper documents into a digital format so that the agencies could easily destroy their paper records and use their digital files as official public record. System also categorized all digital records that had a 10 year retention period which require microfilming and long term storage in an archival vault offsite. Henry was also on the County of Monmouth steering committee for recommendation of disaster recovery safeguards to ensure protection of Monmouth County's public records.
