Kritek and Skyline Partner Up to Make Turnkey Smart City Solutions

By Ken Briodagh August 16, 2017

In a recent press release, Kritek, provider of the cloud-native Klover Smart Transportation Platform, and Skyline Products, a provider of NTCIP dynamic message signs, announced a strategic partnership to Klover-enable Skyline's signs, and offer new turnkey, smart city solutions together. Klover-enabled signs are securely accessible from the Cloud, so they can be integrated into Klover's workflows, and managed from anywhere at any time. Kritek and Skyline will focus on providing turnkey solutions, starting with an offering for Smart Trip Travel Times to easily provide estimated route times to the traveling public.

“Customers are looking for turnkey solutions that tightly integrate software and hardware to solve specific transportation needs,” said Pawan Kharbanda, CEO, Kritek. “Our partnership provides an out-of-the-box solution to today's congested roadways, posting current trip travel times to signage on well-traveled routes.”

Existing Skyline customers can take full advantage of this partnership as well.  Klover includes adapters for most Skyline signs to be Klover-enabled and gain the benefits of the Klover Smart Transportation Platform.  Kritek and Skyline look to extend their partnership to incorporate other turnkey solutions for smart cities such as parking availability, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and transit.

“As the ITS industry moves toward increasingly intelligent traffic systems, robust hardware-software integration has become critical to efficient traffic management,” said Chip Stadjuhar, President and CEO, Skyline Products. “Partnering with Klover allows us both to meet an important customer need, providing a unique, field-ready solution that keeps traffic moving safely on crowded roadways.”
