SuperCom has found another customer for its PureSecurity Offender Tracking Suite. This time around, the company will be providing the solution for a government agency in Canada, as part of a deal that was reached through SuperCom’s partnership with a Canadian offender tracking company. SuperCom did not disclose the names of either its customer or its partner.
The project itself will be billed at a per-unit daily rate, and is expected to generate steady revenue moving forward. SuperCom did not reveal who the agency would be tracking, although its new Canadian partner has previously provided electronic tracking services for correctional, law enforcement, and immigration agencies. According to SuperCom, the deal will advance the company’s goals both in the Americas and internationally and lead to future business.
“Upon our first deployment into a new country or region, we make an initial investment which typically generates good returns from years of steady recurring revenue and new additional projects with other potential customers in the region,” explained SuperCom President of the Americas Ordan Trabelsi. “This is an example of that here in Canada and a testament to the continued value we provide our government customers.”
The news comes roughly a year after SuperCom signed a 4.5-year contract with the government of Estonia to provide PureSecurity monitoring services for people on house arrest within the country. That contract was worth an estimated $1.35 million, based on a per-unit daily rate for up to 400 individuals. SuperCom did not provide details about the duration or the anticipated value of its contract in Canada.
The PureSecurity Suite boasts anti-tampering mechanisms and voice communication, amongst other features. It also identifies offenders with fingerprint biometrics. SuperCom uses similar tech in its PureCare smartphones and PureTag ankle bracelets, which the company recently shipped as part of a new technology pilot to help public health agencies keep tabs on people in quarantine. The company is hoping the pilot will help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
