Gary Bauer wants to silence the cacophony of telephones ringing off the hook in police stations in Canada and beyond.
His company, Niagara Falls, Ont.-based Mobile Innovations, offers wireless, BlackBerry-based communications apps to police services that allow law enforcement personnel to be updated in real time through a smart phone or tablet. This means they don’t have to call back to the office for clarification on information given to them verbally, or request updated information on a call. And they don’t have to worry about the cops showing up at the wrong address.
Mobile Innovations is just one of several Canadian companies that are at the forefront of law enforcement products and solutions. And, like the other successful Canadian companies in that market, most of its revenue comes from other countries.
