The City evaluated each vendor on factors that included program management, system performance, image quality, ease-of-use, and back-office capabilities. Upon conclusion of the City’s due diligence and evaluation; Redflex was unanimously ranked #1.
The contract is for up to 10 intersections with a term of five years, plus two, one-year automatic renewals.

This challenge required the installation and operation of each vendor’s latest technical solutions, and it enabled the City to truly evaluate vendors on their actual performance. As a result the sales process was simplified, enabling the City to evaluate each vendor’s true operational competencies. The selection of Redflex in this environment demonstrates our proven and leading capabilities vis-à-vis the competition” said Karen Finley, CEO.
