Winston-Salem, N.C. -- InterAct Public Safety, a leading provider of security and public safety solutions used by local, state, national and international government agencies, announces the findings of its 2008 internal corporate performance review which indicates it is poised for rapid growth and continued success in 2009.
In 2008, InterAct closed on $28 million in growth equity financing which positions the company for continued expansion and significant development of advanced technologies and services. The investment also allows InterAct to expand its global presence. In 2008, InterAct expanded into India and plans to conduct business with several other countries this year.
"Strong leadership, management and investment in the development of Next Generation public safety systems and technologies are what allow InterAct to thrive," said Ted Collins, President and CEO of InterAct Public Safety. "InterAct is committed to providing the most encompassing and adaptable public safety solutions for emergency management personnel around the world. We anticipate increased global demand for systems that provide the most comprehensive data which allow critical information to quickly be transmitted to first responders and the public."
With a 98 percent customer retention rate and an overall 40 percent revenue growth from 2007 to 2008, InterAct continues to exceed customers' expectations. The growth pattern is poised to continue through 2009 with further success already noted for the first quarter. InterAct is rolling out several innovative new products such as a public webCAD, and the latest version of their computer aided dispatch system and has fortified their team with fifteen new hires in business development and client relations.
