Videalert, a supplier of intelligent traffic management and enforcement solutions to local authorities, has been acquired by enforcement services group Marston Holdings.

The announcement follows successful deployments for a number of Marston’s strategic clients, including the London Borough of Barnet, the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the City of Westminster, where Videalert has replaced competitive CCTV enforcement systems.

In s media statement Marston Holdings said “Videalert is our second acquisition to be announced in 2019 and follows that of Logic Valley, a software developer that specialises in artificial intelligence and mobile application development. The acquisitions are a key part of our ongoing business transformation strategy with new technology-driven service propositions that will deliver even greater value to local authorities. There is a great synergy between Videalert and Marston Holdings at every level, including a longstanding relationship with NSL, which we acquired in 2017. Videalert shares our commitment to innovation and meeting the needs of clients, particularly those that are currently tackling the challenge of air pollution in our cities.”

This is second acquisition by Marston this year following on from its acquisition of Logic Valley, a software developer specialising in artificial intelligence and mobile application development, in February
