Route1 (TSXV:ROI), a leading technology solutions innovator dedicated to delivering secure data protection technologies and mobility solutions for government and enterprise sector issued multiple updates.
The company said that it received a purchase order valued at approximately US$5.9 million pre-tax from an integrated company.
Further, the company announced that its MobiKey technology works with Samsung DeX.
As quoted in the press release:
Route1, through its wholly owned subsidiary Group Mobile Int’l, LLC, recently received a purchase order valued at approximately US $5.9 million pre-tax from an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations in the southern United States to provide the client with ruggedized devices. Route1 expects the delivery of the hardware for this order to occur in the third quarter of 2018.
This order demonstrates the positive outcome of our initiative to focus on and improve our hardware vendor relations. We believe that we are poised to increase our sales from hardware vendor generated leads. Although hardware vendor originated sales leads normally have lower margins than Group Mobile’s recent aggregate experience of 16-22%, Route1 is working with its hardware vendors to increase margins with expanded service and application software offerings.
On July 5, 2018 Route1 announced that the MobiKEY technology now works with Samsung DeX. Military personnel are required to work wherever their mission takes them – on base, at home, or deployed in the field. With products like Samsung DeX, which transforms mobile productivity, users can easily connect their latest Samsung Galaxy smartphone to a monitor, keyboard and mouse for a convenient PC-like experience. And, when combined with Route1’s MobiKEY solution, personnel gain secure remote access to DoD networks, desktops and files through a CAC-authenticated session.
Additionally, earlier this week Thursby Software Systems, Inc. (“Thursby”) announced the partnership of the Thursby PKard Reader with Route1’s MobiKEY software application. Current Thursby DoD and government customers can now add the MobiKEY software application, utilize their PKard Reader to authenticate themselves by using their Department of Defense issued Common Access Cards, federally issued Personal Identification Verification cards, or commercially issued PIV-I cards, and be able to remotely access their local desktop, on any mobile device, with the highest levels of security and encryption.
