Viscount lands Canadian municipal contract and new US federal government building access control deployment

October 31, 2013 - 

Viscount Systems has announced that it has landed contracts to deploy its Freedom, Liberty and MESH access control technologies for one of Canada’s largest municipalities. The company has also announced that another US federal government building will use its technology in Puerto Rico.

For the Canadian projects, the contracts are for up to 400 facilities to be installed over the next several years, and if the municipality – which is yet unnamed – with a full deployment, the value of the project will be approximately $2 million.

“After completing a series of initial installations we are happy to see that the municipality has decided to expand and accelerate this project,” Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount said. “Our unique ability to wrap intercom systems and access control management in a single software platform helped drive these sales. With Freedom we continue to move from single site projects to Enterprise wide systems and this will continue to drive revenue for the coming years.”

In terms of the company’s Puerto Rican deployment, it will deploy its Freedom access control system, though the particular agency has not been identified.

“We are happy to continue to gather momentum in the Federal Government space,” Pineau said. “Over the past year we have continued to harden the Freedom platform and expand our functionality. With our recent US GSA approved product listing and other efforts to expand compliance with US Government regulations we expect to see US Federal sales to continue to become an important market for our Freedom technology.”

Reported previously, Viscount also recently announced a separate contract with another unnamed U.S. government agency for its Freedom access control system.

The terms of these federal government deals have not been disclosed.
