New SUB for Impro

April 2005 News & Events

The Impro Group is proud to announce the addition of a new separate business unit (SBU).

Over the last five years Impro Technologies has been expanding rapidly and has found that at times focus and direction are lost due to departmental distractions. As a result a decision has been taken to separate the company into smaller units, which, while still falling under the groups' umbrella, are accountable for their own success. These business units will function as total separate legal entities in the form of (Pty) Ltd companies and all business transacted between the companies will be on a normal arms length basis. The companies within the group have no direct ownership or shareholding in each other, but are associated by common shareholders.

The first SBU was formed some four years ago and operates under the name IdentiTag. IdentiTag specialises in custom system development and in particular all non-access control applications using RFID. It is a self-sufficient unit that designs and develops its own hardware and software. It makes use of the Impro factory, and where possible, existing Impro hardware to create its systems, that currently include cattle management, asset management and fuel control.

The most recent addition to the list of SBUs is the research and development division. The SBU has been named IdentiSoft and has been officially operational since 1 March. The drive behind the creation of the new SBU is to minimise day-to-day external distractions and to fine-tune the handover process of product to the Impro factory. The onus will now be on IdentiSoft to ensure that all products, hardware or software, handed over to the factory have been thoroughly tested as failure to do so could have financial implications for the unit. This new approach to design will undoubtedly benefit the customer both in terms of the speed and calibre of new products entering the market and quality of the hardware and software that is released.
