Leveraging an additional $10M of venture funding received during 2012,
Ekahau accelerated new product introductions including the B4 safety
badge and the Ekahau Vision™ software platform. Ekahau also increased
its resources dedicated to customer-focused operations by more than
25%, and has more initiatives planned in 2013, including the launch of
a Product Advisory Council (PAC) and an upgraded customer support
Ekahau also sold 57% more safety badges in 2012 versus the previous
year, mainly due to the introduction of the new B4 safety badge. Ekahau
safety badges worn by staff and first responders enable 2-way messaging
and badge LED screens display the real-time location of a distressed
party. Badge sales growth was fueled by new demand from behavioral
health, education, mining, oil and gas, and manufacturing customers
seeking to reduce emergency response times through improved visibility
In the second half of the year, Ekahau introduced the Ekahau Vision™ 2.0
software platform that offers reporting tools, customizable dashboards
and advanced business intelligence capabilities to its customers.
Ekahau Vision™ is designed to improve operations decision-making with
location and event-based alerting that enables work-flow automation.
"I'm very pleased with Ekahau's strong performance in 2012 and excited
about the opportunities we see heading into 2013, specifically around
our staff safety offering," said Mark Norris, President and CEO of
Ekahau. "I believe our performance this year validates Ekahau's focus
on bringing our customers innovative solutions that increase
operational efficiencies and keep people safe."
