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.
We're excited to bring Integron and their focus on Connected Health onto our team. To find out more about the role of IoT in healthcare, read our whitepaper: IoT: The Key to Improving Patient Outcomes Through Connected Healthcare.
