TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global provider of secured solutions for the e-Government, IoT, and Cybersecurity sectors, is pleased to announce that it, together with its local partner, has been awarded an over $33 million contract by the national government of an European Union (EU) member country to deploy its PureSecurity Electronic Monitoring (EM) Suite for a domestic violence monitoring, GPS Tracking of offenders and home detention monitoring program.
SuperCom's PureSecurity Suite is a best-of-breed electronic monitoring and tracking platform with a comprehensive set of innovative features, including advanced anti-tamper mechanisms, multi-factor biometrics, the newest location technologies and sensors, practically limitless historic data, seamless 3rd party API integration, and an ultra-light weight ankle-bracelet with proprietary energy efficiency algorithms.
This is the country's first EM project, linking it with a long list of nations choosing SuperCom's EM solutions and further expanding SuperCom's footprint into an additional country in the EU. The nationwide program is expected to encompass all EM offender programs within the country, up to 15,000 enrollees simultaneously, and include a unique integration of multiple offender tracking sub-programs.
The awarded value of the contract based on the government's internal budgeting is over $33 million. The budget is based mainly on monitoring software, EM products and complimentary services spread over five years, plus an additional two years of continued services. EM Program go-live is expected within the first 90 days of project launch.
"We are excited with this award, the largest European EM project awarded so far this year. It further validates our strategy to scale up operations to accelerate growth and improve public safety in more nations around the world. We look forward to supporting another EU member country's public safety efforts and bringing them the many benefits of SuperCom's proprietary EM technology. It is an honor to take part in this national initiative by building the necessary infrastructure and deploying this country's first EM program," commented Ordan Trabelsi, President & CEO of SuperCom.
"This competitive tender process that just concluded is the first of several tenders for large scale national European EM projects that are expected to be concluded in 2022 and 2023, with a total estimated value of over $200 million. With this meaningful win, SuperCom is once again signaling, after more than 10 other recent national European EM project wins, the superiority of its value offering in the European EM space. We believe our growing reputation as a leading global EM solution provider will drive additional wins in the future," concluded Mr. Trabelsi.
The award was won through a formal bid process, with over 8 international companies taking part in the bidding process. The process included several rounds of negotiations and several demonstrations and system tests by the contracting authority. The award will go through a customary standstill waiting period before contract signing is approved and the project is launched.
