247Security Joins Transfinder’s Marketplace

Posted on October 27, 2016

Mobile security equipment and data management supplier 247Security Inc. is joining Transfinder’s Marketplace, a one-stop shop designed for schools seeking to enhance efficiency and safety within their transportation departments.

The partnership comes one week after Transfinder announced the launch of the Marketplace.

“We are pleased to have our first camera integration with 247Security,” said Antonio Civitella, Transfinder’s president and CEO. “247Security’s live streaming and historical videos now integrate with Transfinder systems.”

247Security, based in Alpharetta, Georgia, is a supplier and manufacturer of mobile digital video recording equipment, security cameras, and GPS data management applications. 247Security’s products integrate with Transfinder’s technology.

“This partnership between Transfinder and 247Security makes better use of our technology and services,” said Quang Nguyen, 247Security’s CEO and chief technology officer. “Transfinder’s products enhance the value of our product offerings, such as historical videos, live streaming, and GPS. For example, without Transfinder’s Routefinder Pro, customers would have limited information. With Transfinder’s bus planning tools, our technology has much more usefulness.”

For example, by marrying Transfinder’s bus planning tools with 247Security video, district personnel can identify students who are assigned to a bus stop with the actual students at the stop via the video feed.

The key areas 247Security specializes in include:

•    Live streaming both inside and outside school buses
•    Live GPS, which integrates with Transfinder’s Viewfinder to determine how accurately a planned route is with an actual bus route to build better routes
•    Historical videos (archives) for incident reconstruction
•    Determining vehicle utilization (whether buses are full or underutilized)

Transfinder’s development team has created an interface with 247Security’s technology that now gives Transfinder clients the ability to leverage camera technology.

“This partnership combines two technologies and takes camera technology to a whole new level that isn’t used or available in the school transportation industry,” said Robert Scott, 247Security’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We see this partnership as a very significant move into the future.”
