John Putters of Visionstate talks about doubling its WANDA facilities software subscribers

In this InvestorIntel interview with host Tracy Weslosky, Visionstate Corp.‘s (TSXV: VIS) CEO John Putters talks about the recent rapid growth in company’s “software as a service model” (SAAS) customer base and revenue, particularly its WANDA™ family of facility management software.

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here), John explains how Visionstate provides IoT [Internet of Things] software through its proprietary WANDA product which tracks, verifies and validates cleaning protocols in hospitals, seniors homes, airports, shopping centres and other public facilities. Covid, he says resulted in a “renewed commitment to meeting these protocols,” making “this technology more important than ever.”

John also talks about Vistonstate’s recent success. “Customer acquisition is a very common way of measuring the performance of software as a service models, and our subscription base has doubled in the past year. In fact that happened over the last nine months.” Looking forward, John says that Visonstate is “adding new customers at a pace that we’ve never experienced before,” largely due to the introduction of the low-cost and easy to deploy wandaMOBILE™ app.

Visionstate cleaning up with the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is just taking off now. The Global IoT market size is forecast to grow from US$478.36 billion in 2022 to US$2,465.26 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 26.4%. In some cases, the current global supply chain disruptions and rising costs are highlighting the need to have good IoT processes in place and thereby accelerating the rollout of the IOT.

Visionstate Corp. (TSXV: VIS) (Visionstate) is a growth oriented company that invests in the research and development of promising new technology in the realm of the Internet of Things, big data & analytics, and sustainability.

Visionstate has developed their WANDA™ family of IoT software products which are used in hospitals, seniors/aged care centres, airports, shopping centres and other public facilities across and beyond North America. The products include wandaNEXT™ and wandaMOBILE™.

Some common applications for the WANDA™ family of products include:

  • wandaNEXT™ – Is a system that offers real-time ‘notifications, analytics & reporting’ as well as an understanding of staff performance and facility needs. One example might be cleaning services in a hospital or other facility. wandaNEXT™ preassigned managers and designated cleaning staff are instantly notified when a patron requests service through wandaNEXT™. Cleaning staff then use wandaNEXT™ to record their response. wandaNEXT™ captures the exact time service is requested, the specific type of service required, and how quickly the cleaning staff responds to the request. There is also a dashboard where you can summon reports that give a detailed deep dive into a facility’s data (results).
  • wandaMOBILE™ – Uses quickscan QR codes to track the hard work and supplies of frontline cleaning and maintenance workers. As above, staff is automatically notified when someone uses their mobile device and a WANDA™ Quickscan QR Code to request service. Then, with either WANDA™’s available hand-held devices or their own personal phones and tablets, cleaning and maintenance staff use the WANDA™ Mobile App and the Quickscan QR Code to record their response activities.

Visionstate investments

Apart from its WANDA™ products, Visionstate has invested in two organizations, Exceed Solar and Freedom Cannabis.

Exceed Solar specializes in solar applications including backyard garden suites and greenhouses that are powered by renewable energy. They use cutting edge technology and building materials to maximize efficiency. The Company is currently developing a smaller, secure, solar-powered backyard greenhouse that caters to the home growing market for cannabis.

Closing remarks

The IoT sector looks set for very high growth (one forecast is a CAGR of 26.4%) in the next few years and companies that can succeed in this area stand to do very well. Visionstate’s primary focus is their suite of IoT software products under their WANDA™ brand. A global rollout is still in the early stages but has been helped by increasing demand as a result of COVID-19.

Visionstate’s 2021 revenue was ~C$540K and the Company trades on a market cap of C$3 million.
