Clever Devices acquires software maker RSM Services Corp.

Posted on August 20, 2015

Clever Devices acquired RSM Services Corp., the maker of Ridecheck Plus software, and a leading provider of transit ridership reporting software. The purchase follows Clever Devices’ 2012 acquisitions of Digital Recorders and Greyhawk Technologies.

“This is very exciting news for us,” said Frank Ingrassia, president/CEO of Clever Devices. “Passenger counters were one of our earliest products and this investment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to delivering the best technology available. RSM has had the same commitment for almost thirty years and we are delighted to work with this team to further improve the solutions we offer.”

RSM Services is based in Houston and currently provides its Ridecheck Plus software to more than forty transit agencies throughout North America. Ridecheck Plus processes data from automatic passenger counters to provide agencies the information they need for reporting as well as making sound business decisions.

Planners, schedulers and managers use Ridecheck Plus to improve service and efficiently allocate resources. Ridecheck Plus provides boardings, alightings, patron loads, passenger miles, on-time adherence, running times and other measures to gauge performance and productivity.

“Our company is a very strong cultural fit with Clever Devices,” said Rich Ruskan, Founder/CEO of RSM Services. “Both organizations are industry leaders and have similar emphases on customers, employees, innovation, and excellence.”

The acquisition of RSM Services continues the expansion of Clever Devices’ product offerings and commitment to providing leading products to its customers.

Clever Devices develops technology solutions for all modes of transit. ITs comprehensive product line includes highly innovative, state-of-the-art technologies such as CAD/AVL, AVM, BusTime, AVA, APC, TurnWarning, Infotainment and Business Intelligence tools.
