May 7, 2019

SANTA ANA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019--Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that its Transportation Systems segment recorded $56.6 million in net bookings or added backlog for the period ending March 31, 2019, representing a 49% increase from the same prior-year period.

The segment’s full-year net bookings or added backlog reflect significant and growing demand for all of the segment’s lines of business – consulting, managed services and software as a service (SaaS) – as well as geographic growth across the country. The segment’s SaaS solutions include Iteris SPM™, iPeMS ® and the commercial vehicle operations (CVO) product suite.

Recent notable Transportation Systems bookings include:

  • $4.7 million in combined task orders under a recently awarded indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with a total ceiling of $19.5 million from the Federal Highway Administration to provide continued development, evolution and deployment support for the intelligent transportation systems reference architecture program.
  • Over $3 million SaaS contract received in the fourth quarter from the Iowa Department of Transportation for the CVO platform’s new international registration and fuel tax compliance service, which followed two new CVO contracts in the first half of fiscal 2019.
  • $3.5 million traffic signal synchronization project from the Orange County Transportation Authority to upgrade traffic signal infrastructure and improve signal timing along a 16-mile stretch of a major corridor in Orange County, California.
  • $1.5 million contract from the Virginia Department of Transportation for traffic signal system optimization support and on-site staffing for arterial roads throughout the northern region of Virginia.
  • $1.4 million contract from the City of Culver City to provide a bus signal priority (BSP) system for eight Culver CityBus lines, representing the continued expansion of its BSP solution in southern California.
  • $1.4 million in combined service orders under a new $3.2 million on-call contract from the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority for traffic signal synchronization services across 15 cities in the San Bernardino Valley area, demonstrating a strong level of demand for Iteris’ intersection-as-a-service™ offering.

“Over the last several quarters, we have pursued geographic growth in select markets, introduced innovative new solution offerings, enhanced our SaaS product portfolio, and expanded our consulting and managed services business,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “These initiatives have expanded our total addressable market and increased the conversion rate on our sales opportunities in our pipeline.
