Rekor’s OpenALPR CloudAPI performed with 65% greater accuracy than Tire Profile’s previous vendor; leading tire and alignment laser diagnostic technology company
Rekor Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: REKR)("Rekor"), a leading provider of innovative vehicle recognition systems, announced today it has been selected by Tire Profiles, LLC to provide cloud-based license plate recognition (LPR) solutions utilizing Rekor’s proprietary Cloud API product. Following a test comparing Rekor’s solution with a competitive product Rekor’s Cloud API solution outperformed the competitor with an astonishing 65% greater accuracy rate than the other system. As a result of the test performed Tire Profiles have renewed and extend their contract with Rekor.
“It has been great working with the team at Rekor. LPR is a critical component in our line of products; we needed a high accuracy solution across North America, South America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim,” said Jeff Hislop, Chief Technology Officer, Tire Profiles. “Another major consideration for us was the fixed monthly price that allows us to continue our growth without the burden of linear expense growth. Even if we could have restructured pricing with our previous vendor, we felt there was no way they could address their product’s accuracy issues to perform as well as Rekor’s solution. The decision was easy.”
