i-PRO Americas, a professional security solutions provider for surveillance and public safety, announced that it has been awarded a contract from OMNIA Partners (formerly NCPA). The award, Contract Number 13-22, will provide public sector organizations with access to competitively solicited and publicly awarded contracts for i-PRO threat and detection software equipment.
The award marks a new era of public sector procurement, making it easier for agencies to procure the latest, most innovative security technology more easily, through a single, pre-negotiated, discounted contract, and a single invoice. It also releases them from the significant administrative burden of processing their own RFPs. i-PRO received the award due in part to its innovative AI analytics and open-platform approach.
The i-PRO FlexPay Financing program further supports Contract Number 13-22. Offering flexible options, it’s the industry’s first financing program to enable the purchase of a range of third-party hardware, software and services as a bundle.
Doug Looney of OMNIA Partners said, “We are proud to add i-PRO to our robust portfolio of high-quality cooperative contracts." He added that "Participating organizations can now adopt i-PRO’s proactive threat and weapons detection software and equipment without the stress of a lengthy and costly procurement process.”
The award enables state and local government, K-12 and higher education, and nonprofit organizations to leverage i-PRO’s edge AI analytics for integrated threat and weapons detection that meet fast-evolving challenges in the following solutions:
- Intelligent edge AI cameras.
- Intruder and loitering detection.
- Cross-line and direction detection.
- Sound detection and alerting vehicle detection.
- Integrated access control.
Hiroshi Sekiguchi, EVP of i-PRO Americas & CMO of i-PRO said, “We’re honored and proud to have received this competitive and important contract." He added that "i-PRO re-engineered our hardware and software into a plug-and-play platform to make sure organizations have access to innovative security technology as it emerges. These organizations protect our most important institutions, and we are pleased to make it easier for them to do so through Contract Number 13-22."
