QRO - Driven by Innovation
QRO was established by its present management team in December 2000 to realise their vision for Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology applied to UK national security for the prevention and detection of crime.
In the eight years since the Company was launched, QRO has become a major supplier in the UK of ANPR applications; designing and delivering a wide range of ANPR systems for use by the Police and other security agencies. This fact can be attested to by the 24 police forces in the UK and abroad that QRO has supplied.
Continually introducing innovative features into their ANPR systems, both for mobile and static use, QRO has attracted the attention of customers in the UK and internationally. The simple, intuitive and friendly User Interface of Check-IT, QRO\\\'s generic ANPR control programme, when it was first introduced shortly after the Company came into being, was quickly recognised as a major step forward in the control of ANPR systems. Since its introduction, the functionality of Check-IT and the design of its User Interface have continued to improve so that Check-IT is still setting standards for operator efficiency that other suppliers seek to emulate.
QRO designed and supplied the first effective portable ANPR systems built around a commercially available laptop computer. The portable laptop system with its robust design has proved a very popular format, resulting in sales of large numbers of these systems to our Police customers. A QRO portable laptop system is currently on trial with the Helicopter Air Support Division of the Northamptonshire and Leicestershire Police.
QRO were the first ANPR supplier
to recognise the complexities and difficulties facing police officers
in deploying and supporting, on a daily basis, a multiplicity of fixed
and mobile ANPR systems. QRO\\\'s QBOF is a comprehensive back office
facility (BOF) application that automates the management of Target
Lists, Vehicle Movement Record recovery and Force Wide ANPR Information
Access whilst simultaneously managing System Configuration and User
List updates to a large numbers of disparate ANPR systems.
The team at QRO are as keen now, as when the Company was started to produce ANPR systems that are innovative in their design and performance and clearly distinguishable from other systems. The experience gained from installing ANPR systems in all types of vehicles, on motorways, on bridges, in CCTV control rooms, at ports and at airports in the UK and abroad will enable us to maintain an enviable record of firsts.
