The new Aludi Group

February 2005 News

Aludi Technologies has moved towards rebuilding its core business, namely parking solutions. In a move to bolster its focus on providing the market with new-age integrated solution offerings, the company has merged its current operation with two specialist businesses, See Systems and Applied Visual Technologies. This merger has resulted in the formation of the Aludi Group.

Lance Quiding, previously the MD of Applied Visual Technology, heads up the Aludi Group management team. He is assisted by Nigel Versfeld who has extensive experience in the parking systems arena and Henk Roets, formerly with See Systems, whose expertise is rooted in IT and systems development. Completing the picture, O2 Capital has agreed to contribute to the strategic management of the group and to support it financially into the future.

The Aludi Group now consists of three specialist companies, each focused on providing key partners and customers with a range of integrated solutions, skilled resources and superior customer service. The companies will retain the three different brands, each continuing in their respective areas of specialty. Aludi Technologies will focus on parking and fire detection systems, Applied Visual Technologies on digital video surveillance and access control and See Systems will provide digital video integration, asset tracking and systems integration and development expertise.

Aludi Technologies has provided parking management and control systems for more than a decade, but the past few years have seen it being pressured by its customers to set the benchmark in the electronic control industry by diversifying its solutions into that of a turnkey integrated solutions provider. In response Aludi Technologies added surveillance technologies, access control and fire detection systems to its solutions portfolio.

The advances in the IT and electronics industry have provided Aludi Technologies with the opportunity to re-evaluate and re-engineer its solutions in order to provide the market with innovative, integrated solutions, which encompasses parking, traffic management, access control, surveillance technologies and asset management.

This process has not only led to the merger with Applied Visual Technologies and See Systems, but has started a quest to find a partner in the parking systems arena whose products could be seamlessly incorporated into the next generation of electronic control systems. These next-generation systems can interact with previously disparate systems, monitor every component, have automated response routines and can be remotely monitored and managed.

After evaluating local and overseas parking solutions, Aludi Technologies is on the verge of signing an agreement which will see them positioned to once again challenge as one of the leaders in the parking solutions industry.

Applied Visual Technologies has had tremendous success in the surveillance technologies and access management markets in corporate surveillance, conservation, manufacturing and industrial sectors.

See Systems is focused on using digital imaging and radio frequency (RF) technology to provide customers with innovative integrated asset visibility and visual integration solutions. It has its own software development division and has successfully added visual business value to customers and partners in the rail, toll, distribution, manufacturing, security and building management sectors.

The Aludi Group has positioned itself to provide customers with innovative integrated electronic control solutions, which are cost effective and designed for the African market.
