China Information Security Technology has won a contract to construct the Police Geographic Information System for Heyuan City, Guangdong province in China, with a total contract value of $2.68 million. The contract is estimated to be completed within 2008.
The company expects that each Police-Use Geographic Information System (PGIS) roll-out in a new city will provide follow-on contract and maintenance service opportunities with the potential to generate additional revenues for the company.
China Information Security Technology (CIST) provides PGIS customers with specialized GIS services, including mapping, geographic positioning, messaging, automated police patrol area monitoring, patrol history tracking and work hour management.
Jiang Lin, CEO of CIST, said: “The Heyuan PGIS win demonstrates the continuing strength of our technological capabilities and market leadership position. We expect that with each successive PGIS win, we will outpace our competitors, as we gain additional experience and enhance our brand recognition.”
