NRS Systems begins work on three products: an accounting software package, a time clock system, and a web-based display. Over the course of 6 months, NRS Systems realizes that pure software accounting solutions is a tough market to get into. The time clock is more successful, but the break out star is the web-based display.
In March of 2017, NRS Systems attends the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas. NRS Systems acquires its first group of resellers and distributors including McMaster-Carr.
Back to the Drawing Board
NRS Systems receives feedback from customers and resellers that would make MERCURY better. After a planning session, the development team realizes that the Android operating system is not going to meet the needs of customers. A year long plan to create a new OS is designed.
Accidentally on Purpose
While sharing MERCURY’s capabilities with a security consultant, the suggestion is made that NRS Systems should consider how to use MERCURY for life safety situations. MERCURY has the ability to use a business logic function to interrupt and display critical information. If this process could be tied to a physical trigger, instead of a logical one, what could be done? NRS Systems meets with local Police, Fire, and Emergency Management teams to raise this question. A Beta test is planned to test use cases with local manufacturing and healthcare facilities.
A New Cause
A day after the school shooting at Margery Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the NRS Systems leadership team sits down. Over the course of a few hours, the team comes to the conclusion that if NRS Systems has technology that can save children’s lives in schools, then there is an obligation to prevent cost from being a factor in adopting this technology. NRS Systems meets with security consultants, Police officers, School Resource Officers, Educational Service Districts, Principals, Teachers, and parents to get feedback. A business plan is put together and the request for beta testing partners is put out.
Consumer Level Care
While developing the emergency alerting product, one of the NRS Systems leadership teams asks, “How else could we activate an alarm?” Using a voice command through Alexa devices seems like a logical solution. It’s decided to test the consumer market for a voice activated family notification system. Preparation begins to launch a Kickstarter to test the response from people looking to help their parents.
Think of all the information in your company that you wish employees could see: inventory, key performance indicators, safety reminders, compliance posters, and operational information.
