American company Global Traffic Technologies (GTT) says it feels it can help emergency response in Britain and it’s making this a priority as it expands its international operations.
At a presentation in London, CEO Doug Roberts explained how the company has grown into the market leader across North America, providing services and technology that allow faster passage through congested cities and improvement of response times by up to 25 percent for emergency vehicles specifically.
Mr Roberts added that in cities where the company’s technology is used, crashes involving emergency services can decrease by up to 70 percent, which means in some cases the equipment can pay for itself within a single year.
GTT has hired Berkshire-based Richard Eltze as its Sales Vice President for EMEA markets and he told the meeting’s attendees that he’s already had positive conversations with several agencies in Britain and expects a trial to go ahead in the near future.
Global Traffic Technologies also delivers signal priority technology for buses and light rail trains, as well as traffic sensing solutions that support the traditional inductive loop and its own non-invasive micro-loop technology.
The company confirmed that in addition to British opportunities, it is pursuing business in parts of Europe, the Middle-East and Asia.
