Salt Lake City, UT (March 3, 2020) – OMNIQ Corp. (OTCQB: OMQS) (“OMNIQ”) announces the acquisition of the IP and certain other assets of Eyepax USA, a provider of customizable software and hardware packages of cloud-based parking management solutions. Eyepax’s solutions include its Online Parking System (OPS), a cloud-based solution for managing parking permit citations and enforcement; Citation Pro, which processes parking violations; and Lane Pro, parking and license-plate recognition using OMNIQ – HTS cameras. This acquisition complements OMNIQ’s AI-based Machine Vision comprehensive Vehicle Recognition System (including patented, License Plate, Color and Make Recognition) and enables the Company to provide an integrated, comprehensive solution that combines fixed, mobile and handheld hardware with a robust solution for issuance of virtual permits, citations and collections.
OMNIQ AI-based Machine Vision solutions are already installed in over 30 Airports in the US including, JFK, La Guardia, Newark, Los Angeles, Miami and others, as well as in Public Safety Projects in Florida, South America and sensitive districts in the Middle East.
The Eyepax parking enforcement and revenue control system (PERCS) provides a wide range of operational benefits, including: increased efficiency and time management for operators, enhanced revenue generation and elevated customer satisfaction levels. PERCS incorporates parking access and revenue enforcement capabilities within a single platform, using license plate recognition (LPR) technology. The system allows an administrator to manage lanes and track revenue from one web portal, and utilizes a dashboard for the monitoring of all activity and transactions for visitors and transient parkers. The company’s customers include municipalities, universities, medical centers and public parking operations across the U.S.
Shai Lustgarten, CEO of OMNIQ Corp., commented: “This acquisition is a game changer for us. After being the pioneer in developing and providing Machine Vision – Object Identification solutions, this acquisition establishes us as a Prime Contractor offering an innovative and superior approach and propels us to the top of the food chain in the Parking Industry. The Automation of Parking Industry is expected to grow to $5.2B by 2023*.
“As the Prime Contractor, we shall benefit from capturing the whole project revenue versus just a fraction of the revenue acting exclusively as a provider of the Machine Vision solution. Moreover, our new comprehensive solution will accelerate the shift to a recurring transaction based revenue sharing model. Our Vehicle Recognition system was successfully tested by a leading Homeland Security Authority in the Middle East, proving its superior accuracy which is the key feature for Automated Parking solutions.
“Adding these new capabilities to our superior Machine Vision technology creates an innovative approach for the Industry, similar to how UBER changed the transportation industry. The combination of our AI-Machine Vision technology and the Eyepax cloud-based platform, creates a seamless solution that makes finding and paying for parking much more convenient to the customer, while also increasing efficiencies and enhancing revenue generating capacity for the parking provider. With the addition of the accessible, web-based PERC system, OMNIQ will now have the ability to engage directly with the end-user, providing a scalable platform that generates recurring revenue. We are energized by this acquisition and believe this enhanced fully integrated cloud and AI solution is a competitive advantage as we leverage the significant opportunities we see in the ticketless/safe parking industry.”
Mr. Lustgarten concluded, “We welcome the Eyepax founders and employees coming to our team, and we remain focused on continuing to innovate and leverage our AI-Machine Vision capabilities to meet the evolving needs of our growing Public Safety, Automation of Parking and Supply Chain verticals and our broad customer base including many Fortune 500 customers.”
