Contract award: passenger information systems framework agreement
with East Sussex County Council
21st Century Technology plc (AIM: C21), the specialist provider of integrated IoT systems and software to the passenger transport markets, is pleased to announce the award of contract for East Sussex County Council ("ESCC") in a new framework agreement (the "Agreement"). The Agreement, for the supply, installation and support of real-time passenger information technology and content management software, is initially valued at approximately £0.5m, and work is due to commence in September 2019.
ESCC is working in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, West Sussex County Council and Surrey County Council (the "Named Authorities") to introduce a Content Management System ("CMS"). Together, they have chosen 21st Century's new Electronic Passenger Information ("EPI")' software platform, to provide the foundations for their upgrade programme, which will also see 21st Century extend and refresh the passenger information display capabilities throughout the wider region.
The 3-year framework agreement, with a customer option of a further 12-months extension through to July 2023, enables any of the Named Authorities to call-off additional displays, software and services, which may extend the duration and increase the overall value of the agreement.
Russ Singleton, Chief Executive of 21st Century, said: "We are delighted to be working with East Sussex County Council to enhance the capabilities of their passenger information infrastructure throughout the wider region. This award also demonstrates our joint commitments to increasing sustainability through upcycling a number of existing displays from within their legacy estate. Our latest high-performance displays technologies and powerful content management software are all backed-up by our dedicated maintenance teams and on-line support systems."
