Entrepreneur Peter Oliver founded the company in 2006. Today it has a turnover of £8.5 million. Supplying around 300 customers in more than 50 countries, it sells primarily via resellers, as well as serving corporate organisations which have approached them directly and the public sector, including various police forces. Although based in the UK, it has grown internationally and is only now starting to address the UK market in more depth, and to this end is currently recruiting UK-based resellers.
