"We're excited to partner with Rekor to offer cutting-edge parking technologies to our clients across the globe." The agreement with SecurePark represents further penetration by Rekor into the parking vertical. Parking management software industry Last year it announced a licensing agreement with ParkSmart, a subsidiary of Coinamatic Canada, whose first deployment of the iP360 system is in the final stages of launching with the City of Ottawa. Once live, it will enable the city to manage and track parking tickets throughout the ticket lifecycle. All around the world, parking operations supervisors are searching for more efficient ways to manage inventory" "We are excited to announce our partnership with SecurePark, a recognised leader in the parking management software industry, and to continue our penetration of this growing vertical. All around the world, parking operations supervisors are searching for more efficient ways to manage inventory and streamline the handling of permit issuance, payments, reporting, and more," said Robert A. Berman, President and CEO, Rekor. "Rekor's iP360 is an all-inclusive solution that enables the simple management of all aspects of parking operations, from a single dashboard. The selection by two leaders in the space serves as validation that our iP360 platform is the go-to solution." Parking management solution The combination of Rekor's vehicle recognition systems with its iP360 platform creates a complete and scalable parking management solution. The system, powered by OpenALPR's state-of-the-art AI-based software, allows additional capabilities such as gate access and fixed and portable camera monitoring using whitelist features. Data captured by the system can be used to create strategies to optimise parking management and enforcement, with more efficient oversight of residential, employee, and visitor parking. The powerful, dynamic platform can be used where any type of approved permits is valid. Customers have several permit management options including applying for a new permit for property including office building garages/lots, municipal garages/lots, convention centers, hotels, or multi-purpose developments.
Rekor Systems, Inc., a NASDAQ company focused on bringing smarter, faster, cost-competitive solutions to the worlds of public safety and customer experience, announced the launch of its vehicle recognition software donation program to provide eligible municipalities, law enforcement agencies, and educational facilities with free access to its Watchman vehicle recognition software. Rekor has already received applications from organisations across 31 states to provide vehicle recognition solutions. Security IP cameras Eligible organisations can apply to receive two software licenses for Rekor's Watchman software, which can be integrated into either new or existing traffic or security IP cameras for real-time alerting of known license plates. Watchman will enable the uploading of AMBER Alerts, hotlists, manual entry, and forensic searching for up to 30 days. The initiative was designed to provide organisations with valuable data to reduce crime and increase public safety. Crucial programs are cast aside because of large, upfront capital costs that can't be met with current resources" "One of the biggest barriers to implementing new technologies at the municipal, law enforcement and school district level is budget. Oftentimes crucial programs are cast aside because of large, upfront capital costs that can't be met with current resources - something we're learning quickly by the early enthusiasm from applying organisations across the country," said Robert A. Berman, CEO, Rekor. Licence plate reading cameras "Our new vehicle recognition software donation program is already a success as law enforcement agencies that have signed up are placing orders to purchase additional licenses. This program is demonstrating that public safety officials can have affordable access to this powerful crime-stopping technology." By participating in the donation program, organisations will contribute their data to the Rekor Public Safety Network (RPSN), as well as gain access to the nationwide, comprehensive law enforcement partnership. Available to any customer that opts-in, the RPSN aggregates vehicle data from customers in more than 30 states. With thousands of automatic license plate reading cameras currently in service that capture approximately 150 million plate-reads per month, the network is expected to be live by the first quarter of 2020.
