Appian Technology has won two contracts worth £350,000 to supply its Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems (ANPR) technology to a UK military base and a Middle Eastern hotel.
The first contract for £165,000 involves the installation of Appian’s ANPR access control technology at the entrance points to one of the largest UK military bases in the south of England. The system, comprising Appian’s Cobra ANPR cameras and Talon ANPR recognition software, will be used to monitor and control all incoming and outgoing traffic to the base and will be connected to external databases allowing real time checking of plate reads.
The second contract for £185,000 is for the supply of a sophisticated ANPR access control system for a hotel, which is part of a large Middle Eastern hotel group. This is Appian’s second order from this customer and three further orders for additional hotels are expected in the next six months. The system will be used to assist in security and surveillance and will have the unique capability of reading multiple number plate formats found in the region.
Appian chairman Pat Ryan said, ‘As well as winning new clients, expanding relationships with existing clients is equally important, and in line with this I am delighted to strengthen our association with these key customers. The new contract wins highlight our clients’ satisfaction in our service and support as well as our systems’ proven value in enhancing security and protecting infrastructure.’
Appian is a Buckinghamshire-based company specialising in ANPR and traffic management products and solutions.
