SafeSpeed prides itself in developing and utilizing the latest technology both in hardware and software. SafeSpeed believes that being a wholly owned U.S. and locally based company in Chicago provides a unique advantage over other vendors, the majority of whom are foreign held or based out of state. With SafeSpeed there is no long wait for parts to ship from overseas. All of SafeSpeed’s engineering and software development staff is located in its Chicago headquarters. Onsite support is available immediately and any and/or problems that may occurt are resolved within 48 hours instead of weeks. Beyond public safety, one of SafeSpeed’s main goals is to ensure that municipalities are not financially burdened by the Red Light Running (RLR) program. SafeSpeed achieves this by structuring its business model so that: 1. There are minimal to no upfront costs due from the municipality to SafeSpeed, any government agency or private contractor of any sort; 2. There are only 5 small monthly fees of $100 each (some vendors charge as much as $4,700 per month); 3. Instead of charging a service fee per transaction, the majority of SafeSpeed’s service fees are structured as flat monthly fees with only one transactional fee for “payment processing.” The result is that SafeSpeed will never receive more revenue than the municipality for whom it is working in any given month and the municipality will never be in a negative financial position due to monthly fees and monthly charges.
