As we rapidly approach the holiday season – and a whole new decade – I am delighted to share some exciting news from KORE. Last week, we announced the acquisition of Integron, an industry-leading IoT solutions and managed services provider with a focus on Connected Health.
Like KORE, Integron is also an IoT pioneer. Integron was initially founded in 1985 as a reseller of ruggedized computer equipment with asset management capabilities. The company later pivoted into the IoT space, providing end-to-end solutions to its customers including hardware procurement, inventory management, connectivity, and mobile device management (MDM).
Integron has grown rapidly in recent years and now has a particularly strong presence in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, and life sciences.
As a result of the acquisition, KORE will gain a tier-one portfolio of customers including St. Jude Medical/Abbott, Ford Motor Company, IQVIA, Parexel, Fresenius, Patient Point, Clinical Ink, and many others including several Fortune 500 leaders.
This acquisition turbo-charges our go-to-market strategy by (i) firmly establishing KORE as a leader in healthcare, (ii) enabling delivery of robust managed IoT services through an FDA and ISO certified production facility, and (iii) instantly becoming the leader in supporting IoT-enabled clinical trials and remote patient monitoring – a unique competitive advantage.
If you haven’t taken a look at KORE recently, I strongly recommend you do. We are a whole new company today. It also broadens our credentials in serving key markets through a strong, high-performance team that aligns directly with our valued KORE team. We believe the future is bright together. I can’t wait to experience the magic we will create in IoT in 2020 and beyond as we deliver best-in-class connectivity, solutions and analytics to our customers with unparalleled simplicity and speed.
