Two leaders in the People Counting industry have joined together to provide a wider selection of technology options and excellent customer service. Pittsburgh based company, Traf-Sys Inc, has purchased Walker Wireless to combine their efforts and reach new markets. Traf-Sys Inc has been providing complete people counter systems since 1996 and has specialized in handling large enterprise-level clients such as Dick’s Sporting Goods and Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
Walker Wireless was originally founded in 1986 by Mark Walker as the MWalker company. The company entered the People Counting industry by providing cost-effective, reliable people counter devices to libraries that had a need to provide patron counts in order to quantify and justify funding for buildings and special projects. Over the years, MWalker provided counters to government agencies, colleges and retailers.
In 2002, MWalker started using wireless technology to transmit patron count data from people counting devices to a PC or a PC network. MWalker was then renamed to Walker Wireless LLC.
In 2008, Walker Wireless introduced the ConceptOne sensor family which would be used for environmental and condition monitoring over a WiFi connection. These sensors would be used for health care, food safety and industrial monitoring applications.
In April of 2009, Walker Wireless was purchased by Traf-Sys People Counting Systems and will continue to provide quality people counting devices and environmental monitoring sensors. The cost-effective wireless people counting devices provided by Walker Wireless will be a perfect fit with Traf-Sys People Counting Systems selection of people counters and systems. The environmental monitoring sensors provided by Walker Wireless will also allow Traf-Sys to expand into new markets and opportunities. Together, the companies will be able to provide a greater variety of technologies and even better customer service and support.
