James Lilley joins company's management team as European/Middle East Sales Manager
Digital Ally, which develops, manufactures and markets video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial security applications, announced it has received orders for fourth quarter delivery from nine domestic law enforcement agencies with a combined value of almost US$1 million. This will represent a record number of individual orders in excess of $100,000 each to be shipped in a single quarter. The previous quarterly record for more than $100,000 order shipments occurred in the third quarter of 2009.
The company secured the orders from four Metropolitan Police Departments, four large Sheriff's departments and one Indian Nation Police Department. When combined with a previously announced order from the Turkish Police Department, the company's order backlog now exceeds $5 million.
“Growing acceptance of our new DVM-750 in-car video system, combined with the success of our wireless downloading capabilities, are allowing Digital Ally to attract orders from more large law enforcement departments,” stated Stanton Ross, CEO. “Our ability to secure orders from larger agencies that we were unable to serve in the past should allow us to continue increasing our share of the overall in-car video market. It is also encouraging to note that we have seen no decline in orders from our core customer base, which is comprised primarily of small and medium-sized departments.”
“When coupled with reorders for our DVM-500/500 Plus legacy products and customers' enthusiastic response to the new DM-500 Ultra motorcycle video system, we expect sales to continue strong throughout the fourth quarter,” Ross said. “We currently expect to fulfill our existing order backlog, along with most additional orders received during the balance of November and December, in the fourth quarter.”
Digital Ally also announced that James Lilley has joined the company's management team as European/Middle East Sales Manager. Lilley will be based in the United Kingdom and will be responsible for sales throughout Europe and the Middle East.
“James Lilley's experience in establishing agents and dealers on a worldwide scale for the ALPR industry, while working directly with law enforcement agencies in Europe and the Middle East, should prove invaluable to our company's strategic sales initiatives in this part of the world,” Ross said. “We also continue to expand in Latin America, where we have recently added four new sales agents representing our products in seven South American countries. This brings the total number of our international sales agents to 28, covering approximately 90 countries around the world.”
