MONTREAL — Genetec, a provider of unified security, public safety and business intelligence solutions, has partnered with RideAmigos, an organization that help commuters. to deliver a simplified experience for workers returning to their offices.
The companies explain that RideAmigos Commute Hub helps employers deliver a seamless experience regardless of how their employees commute to the office.

Advanced Camera Technologies Support Genetec, RideAmigos Partnership
At the heart of the newly formed alliance between the two companies is the use of automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) cameras. Through the use of these advanced cameras, RideAmigos’ Commute Hub and Genetec’s AutoVu Free-Flow and Curb Sense technologies provides parking officials with all the necessary information related to available parking spaces and facility status.

Our goal with this joint solution is to help organizations optimize accessibility and use of parking spaces and provide or subsidize alternative transportation services to reduce the burden on employees.”
