Christchurch's Connexionz continues U.S expansion with new California office

07 Aug 17

A Christchurch company is expanding its global footprint by opening an office in California.

Connexionz delivers fully integrated Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications, servicing transit agencies across Australasia, Asia, Europe, South America and North America.

Based in the Highridge Business Park in the Valencia suburb of Santa Clarita, the new Connexionz office is a major step in the company’s US expansion strategy.

The company says it’s experiencing an increase in enquiries from transit agencies across all networks – bus, ferry, train – that are eager to deploy ITS to improve both fleet performance and customer service.

The company says a global trend towards on-demand and personalised mobility solutions is driving transit agencies to partner with Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) companies, like Connexionz, to develop solutions that can connect and integrate seamlessly with multimodal networks.

The opening of the new office in California follows HornBlower’s recent launch of its New York’s City ferry system which installed ITS technology developed and managed by Connexionz.

This installation includes laser-based passenger counting systems, a range of on-board real-time service displays, and passenger infotainment services.

Following a competitive international procurement process, Connexionz won a contract that commenced in February this year and runs until 2022.

Brian Garrett, sales director, Connexionz US, says, “With a large stronghold in California and surrounding States in the US, we are opening an office in Santa Clarita to be closer to our customers in a modern environment that gives us agility to meet their needs faster.”

“We are committed to delivering efficient internet-enabled technologies for transit that make use of the latest innovations in solar, laser, sensors and analytics.”

“Technology that enhances transit services, improves fleet performance with real-time reporting and analytical intelligence, reduces maintenance costs, and increases consumer demand,” says Garrett.
