SAVI ENGINEERS REMARKABLE COMPANY TURNAROUND IN 2013; CARRIES PROFITABILITY & STRATEGIC MOMENTUM INTO 2014More »
In its first year since becoming privately held, Savi has orchestrated a remarkable turnaround that exceeded all expectations in 2013 and created a wave of momentum and growth that continues in 2014. The transformation occurred in all areas of the business and included major additions to the company’s management team, an aggressive new product development and launch schedule, new strategic partnerships, and the transfer of operating functions from California to Alexandria, VA. Financial evidence of the across-the-board success was best seen in the $13 million EBITDA improvement from 2012 to 2013, and a return to profitability.
“At the start of 2013 we focused Savi’s activities around two key objectives: completing our transition to an independent, vibrant, stand-alone company and putting the company on a path to profitability and long-term success by bringing new sensor analytic solutions to market,” said Bill Clark, President & CEO, Savi. “We exceeded both of these goals and positioned Savi to leverage the growing demand for our sensor analytic solutions in the $15B big data analytics market, currently growing at 27% CAGR.”Read full release »

SAVI LAUNCHES NEW SENSORS, READERS AND PORTABLE DEPLOYMENT KITS THAT DELIVER DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE ADVANCESMore »
Savi today introduced nine new active Radio Frequency Identification (aRFID) products including sensors, readers and portable deployment kits that deliver immediate and dramatic advances in storage capacity, performance and usability. The new hardware makes it possible for organizations to rapidly establish a complete aRFID system in any environment, increase the speed of data capture and ultimately collect more sensor data to improve efficiency, reduce risk and more confidently manage operations. The hardware also meets the requirements of the U.S. Department of Defense RFID-IV contract, awarded today to Savi. [See today’s related announcement: U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE SELECTS SAVI AS SOLE PROVIDER FOR RFID-IV CONTRACT on www.savi.com].
“When customers talk about collecting and managing information from sensors, it is not as simple as just plugging another data type into existing enterprise systems. Sensor data is unique—it’s often erratic, unstructured and inconsistent—requiring purpose-built solutions to collect and manage it,” said Bill Clark, Savi’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “By combining the upgraded performance of Savi’s new sensors and hardware with our analytic applications, organizations can capture and convert their sensor data into operational intelligence to improve efficiency, reduce risk and more confidently manage their organization.”Read full release »
