247Security Joins Transfinder Market Place

Alpharetta, GA – Nov. 1, 2016 – A week after announcing the launch of its Marketplace, a one-stop-shop for schools seeking solutions to enhance efficiency and safety within their transportation departments, Transfinder has announced 247Security Inc. as a new partner

“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 leading provider and manufacturer of mobile digital video recording equipment, security cameras and GPS data management applications. 247Security’s products integrate seamlessly 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 CTO. “Transfinder’s products enhance the value of our product offerings, such as historical videos, live streaming and GPS. Transfinder’s Routefinder Pro, combined with our GPS and video solutions makes our products come alive in a more useful way for our customers.”

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

“We can provide the video of every bus stop. Every stop can be viewed and analyzed. We can see how many get on the bus live,” Nguyen said.

The key areas 247Security specializes in include:

  • Live streaming
  • Live GPS (that integrates with Transfinder’s Viewfinder to determine how accurate a planned route is compared with an actual bus route to build better plans)
  • Historical videos (archives) for incident reconstruction, inside and outside the bus including stop arm infractions
  • Determining vehicle utilization (are buses full or underutilized)

Transfinder’s Marketplace highlights “best in class” vendors such as 247Security that have been vetted by Transfinder and the market in a number of areas, including camera technology.

“This is big for us,” said Robert Scott, 247Security’s Vice President. “This partnership combines two technologies and takes camera technology to a whole new level that hasn’t been available in the school transportation industry. We see this partnership as a very significant move into the future.”

Transfinder created the Marketplace as school districts’ needs have become more complex and sophisticated. The Marketplace gives schools and municipalities choices from among top-tier service providers that integrate with Transfinder’s technology.

“Interest in the Marketplace is growing,” said Civitella. “We are hearing from both service providers wanting to be included in the Marketplace and clients interested in learning about the options they have when picking solutions that complement what they currently own. 247Security is a perfect example of the types of partners we are looking to engage with.”

Transfinder and 247Security development teams have created an amazing interface with 247Security and Transfinder technology which now allows our customers the ability to leverage our combined technologies at a whole new level.  

“Robert Scott states, ‘Our partnership with Transfinder shows the school bus industry our continuing desire to create new and advanced video and planning solutions designed specifically for the school bus industry.’
