Founded in 2009, SecurePark offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) parking enforcement platform for municipalities, parking operators, airports, schools, hospitals, security and property management users.

“This deal with SecurePark caps a landmark inaugural year for ROKER,” said Sachin Bedi, CEO, ROKER. “We marked the successful launch of our parking permit and violation management system, secured funding, and established solid customer traction, thanks in part to SecurePark. With the addition of the SecurePark team, intellectual property and recurring revenue stream, we now have a complete end-to-end system, along with the experienced team and resources needed to scale.”

This cloud-first system is built on a state-of-the-art architecture that includes artificial intelligence, blockchain, and Internet of Things to empower real-time transactions.

“Over the last decade, SecurePark has built a strong customer and user base, working with leading parking operators like Precise ParkLink in Canada to implement our parking enforcement solution with municipalities, airports, shopping centers, universities, and property management firms. This has led to new opportunities with cities and businesses in the United States and Canada,” said Shane Nolan, former President of SecurePark and ROKER’s new Head of Operations. “As we worked closely with ROKER to better serve our customer’s needs, we realized that we had found the right partner to join forces with and address the growing need for modern, affordable, and simple end-to-end parking management solutions, that would allow a larger market of customers to embrace new automation tools.”

ROKER was founded in June 2020 as a venture between Rekor Systems (NASDAQ: REKR), a provider of real-time roadway, customer and public safety intelligence to enable AI-driven decisions, and Cygnet Infotech, a premier product engineering and application development services firm. Cygnet’s then CEO Sachin Bedi took the lead at ROKER as its CEO. The ROKER solution is built on the technology stacks of both founding companies.

The expanded ROKER organization is headquartered in Princeton, NJ with its second office in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. ROKER’s product portfolio will be sold directly and through the resale channel as individual and integrated products. Customers using the company’s solutions will benefit from the ease of use of both systems, the ability to integrate with any hardware, and the automation of routine parking and enforcement tasks, which leads to revenue recovery and generation.
