My Private Eye®

Private investigation and process service are critical components of the Justice System. The investigators and court officers within these industries serve important roles helping to ensure that the wheels of justice continue to spin. Process servers locate and serv e court documents to witnesses, defendants and/or victims in order to notify them of court proceedings. Private investigators assist corporate America, individuals, and law enforcement in obtaining evidence needed to secure civil judgments and criminal convictions thereby helping to restore equilibrium. In some cases, their work will help to exonerate a wrongfully charged and/or convicted person paving the way towards restoration of individual rights and freedoms. Therefore, it is imperative that they have the most advanced and efficient tools at their disposal. One such tool is a powerful web-based software program designed to streamline their casework. The My Private Eye® software program provides them with functional technology that is both user-friendly and simple to operate while in the field.

Many of the other software companies were built by programmers with no industry experience. Their programs are a one-discipline design, meaning the functionalities are either targeted specifically for private investigation OR process service. None of them combine both ends of the spectrum. Thus, customers are forced with subscribing to two seperate software programs in order to do effectuate their jobs as a private investigator and process server.

My Private Eye® has recognized the dual role in the industry and provides a software program encompassing ALL of the functionalities necessary for the person who wears ‘both hats’ that of a private investigator AND a process server!

The My Private Eye® software program was developed by a private investigator for private investigators. There has never been a program in the market that has been built exclusively by someone having direct experience within the industry…until NOW! All the advanced functionalities of My Private Eye® have been field tested and approved by seasoned investigators, process servers, and former law enforcement officers.

Thomas E. Santarlas, Ph.D. is the founder of the My Private Eye® software program. He has been involved in the private investigation and process service industry for the past 23 years. Author of various published works, Dr. Santarlas has significant research and writing experience within the industry. One of his published articles entitled “Analyzing Process Server Software Functionality” outlines several key components in comparing software programs.

Dr. Santarlas has been appointed by the Chief Judge of the Tenth Judicial Circuit Court to be an instructor for the certified process server course. He has been providing the course curriculum and certifying new officers for the past 13 years. Hundreds of new process servers / private investigators have benefited from the training and have gone on to utilize the software to successfully build their businesses.

Digital Recognition Network, DRN
DRN’s growth path has been fueled by visionary innovation, proven technology, and a service-and-solutions-oriented culture. Today, DRN’s exclusive vehicle location data paired with analytics helps users build the full story of a vehicle’s location history and trends rather than simple location tracking alone. This competitive advantage can help lenders, recovery agents, insurers and auto manufacturers locate more vehicles faster. That means fewer charge-offs, more recovered vehicles, less fraud and higher recall completion… which lowers risk and increases revenue.
Vehicle Location Data via Event Links–  comes from license plates that are publicly visible for all to see. The United States is home to the largest passenger vehicle market in the world with over 250 million passenger vehicles travelling on public roads and thoroughfares. Every car has a license plate and our cameras capture images of license plates that pass within the field of view of the camera, the location where the camera was located when the photograph was taken, and the time and date the camera took the photograph. These cameras simply automate a process that has been done manually for years – capturing publicly visibly and publicly available information. Because the camera is photographing license plates in public locations visible for all to see, there is no expectation of privacy in the data we collect. We take those images and the data associated with them and leverage our analytics to deliver Event Links and DRNsights, solutions for Auto Finance, Insurance and Auto Recovery.
