Southern Regional School District

Background

Southern Regional School District is a New Jersey public school system located in Manahawkin. The school district serves 200+ teachers and 3,000+ students from seventh through twelfth grade.

Initial Challenges

Southern Regional Schools had previously been using a different camera system for the school buses but found it to be unreliable and outdated. The previous system also did not have any GPS tracking capabilities.

There was a need for a dependable system setup that also fit into current budgetary measures.

Fortress was the awarded vendor for the installation on 80 vehicles due to the fleet management software capabilities and the clarity of the real-time video streaming and video recordings.
