“The operating and financial performance delivered by the GroupMobile team during the 2018 year sets the table for an exciting 2019 and beyond,” said Tony Busseri CEO of Route1. “We expect to add software products during the balance of the 2019 year, with new, profitable revenue, that reflects data requirements from our recently acquired customers that came about by sitting down with them and instead of pushing a particular product or service, asking them what they need help with, or simply, what their data pain point is.
We started our business pivot towards being an advanced provider of solutions for the ultra-secure mobile workforce, user authentication and data intelligence in mid-2017 and the plan is working. We expect GroupMobile to grow organically and through acquisition over the next year and continue to aggressively move forward on realizing on the embedded value in our intellectual property.”
