The Perth company reported revenue in the first quarter of FY2020 of $1.26 million with gross margins improving to 60 per cent of sales.
Hardware sales have seen a 30 per cent per annum compound annual growth rate as it has extended its presence with new offices In Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
The young company is still in a loss-making situation, however its working capital buffer is considered sufficient to move to net positive cash generation and positive earnings without raising new capital.

Customers include the Defence Department, John Holland, LendLease and Stockland.
The core of the company’s business is its artificial intelligence (AI) software utilising the internet of things (IoT), system integration of cameras, computing and connectivity, and assembly and testing of complete systems.
