Tampa Bay Business Journal Honors Award-Winning Industry Leader
PlateSmart® is among the top 20 software developers in the Tampa Bay area in 2016, according to an annual list published by the Tampa Bay Business Journal in March. The list is one of many compiled by the Journal, which seeks to determine the hottest companies in the local business community for the purposes of sales and business research and as a service to job seekers.
PlateSmart is well known in the security industry as the leading provider of fixed-location Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) solutions as well as ALPR-based video analytics technology. The Company’s flagship solution, ARES™, is an enterprise-grade end-to-end ALPR-based video analytics software suite for fixed cameras that has won multiple awards for excellence. This year, PlateSmart introduced PlateSmart Network™, an innovative solution for peer-to-peer sharing of ALPR capture data among ARES users, which was honored with a 2016 Platinum Govies award from Security Products magazine. The award was presented to PlateSmart at this year’s ISC West Expo in Las Vegas.
The Tampa Bay Business Journal citation was recognized by no less than Florida Governor Rick Scott. In a congratulatory letter to PlateSmart CEO John Chigos, Scott wrote, “Floridians like you are helping make our state the best place in the world to raise a family, have a great career, and enjoy a life full of opportunity.” Chigos commented, “I’d like to thank The Tampa Bay Business Journal and Governor Scott for their recognition. PlateSmart has built its reputation on creating the most cost-effective and powerful ALPR-based video analytics solutions on the market, and we are only getting better. I firmly believe that because of companies like ours, our business community here in Tampa Bay has the potential to become one of the epicenters of the technology industry in the United States. We at PlateSmart will do our utmost to do our industry and our community proud by continuing to produce the cutting edge in video surveillance technology.”
