Digital Ally Receives Initial DVM-250 Order From Kansas City Transportation
Company Targets 5,000+ Vehicles Operated by Affiliates of Veolia
LENEXA, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 12/02/13 -- Digital Ally, Inc.
(NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced
video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security
and commercial applications, today announced that it has received an
initial order for 100 DVM-250 Video Event Recorders from Kansas City
Transportation Group ("KCTG"). Operating under the names "Yellow
Cab", "10/10 Taxi", and "Super Shuttle", KCTG manages a fleet of over
400 transportation vehicles in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
KCTG is part of the transportation division of Veolia Transportation
("Veolia"), the largest non-governmental provider of transit services
in North America, with over 5,000 vehicles, 21,000 employees in the
United States and Canada, and annual revenue approaching $1 billion.
Veolia, which manages many modes of public transit, provides
transportation by charter bus, commuter rail, paratransit, private
sedan, taxi and airport shuttle services. It is the North American
business unit of Veolia Transdev, a global provider of public
transportation solutions that is partly owned by Caisse des Depots, a
leading French financial institution.
"Our immediate objective is to become the preferred provider of event
recording solutions to the 400-plus vehicles that comprise KCTG's
fleet in the Kansas City area, and thus we view this initial 100-unit
order as a 'first step' in an expanding relationship with a regional
leader in public and private transportation," stated Stanton E. Ross,
Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "The initial
installation of 100 DVM-250 event recorders, along with the
infrastructure to wirelessly move video for all of KCTG's vehicles,
should be completed by January 1, 2014."
"Longer-term, we hope to expand our relationship to include Veolia
Transportation affiliates in other North American cities. We
currently have pilot programs underway in four U.S. cities for other
Veolia divisions that involve fleets totaling well over 1,500
"We believe that KCTG understands the enhanced safety statistical
value of having video event recorders in its vehicle fleet, but it
wanted a solution that did not involve the payment of recurring
monthly fees, which are charged by a number of our competitors,"
continued Ross. "We offered the customer a more cost-effective,
turn-key solution that includes the in-vehicle recorders, associated
infrastructure and video archiving software systems, while
eliminating the need for monthly fees."
"We believe Veolia represents a 'game-changer' for our commercial
group that affirms our business model for the event recorder market.
The deployment of our DVM-250 within the Veolia organization
represents a multi-year opportunity. It provides our Company with an
'anchor' customer that should allow us to invest additional resources
to assure that our hardware and back office solutions for the
commercial fleet market are state-of-the-art in performance and
reliability. The Veolia opportunity could eventually represent the
single largest systems deployment in Digital Ally's history,"
