Reasons to Invest

  • 521%+ YoY growth in revenue and contract value in 2020, thanks to multi-year contracts with major customers, many of whom increased orders after initial deployment. Additional customers expected when the next generation 4G compatible device is introduced.
  • Our CEO, as a founder and CEO, has completed IPOs for three companies since 1997.
  • Wearable device works without a smartphone and offers true emergency-monitoring functionality. Device and SaaS platform designed and developed by in-house software engineering team and manufactured in the US. 

OVERVIEW


A complete solution for worker safety



We have created the RiskBand emergency monitoring device and ARIES SaaS platform to enable businesses to protect their employees, dispatch emergency response, and investigate incidents. The company is currently pursuing an aggressive customer acquisition strategy, as well as increasing shipments to existing clients. 


We believe our solution helps businesses mitigate workplace injury and worker safety risks. It also offers peace of mind to the pandemic-driven lone worker force making deliveries and providing care.

THE PROBLEM


Businesses need to keep employees safe

Keeping workers safe from injury and assault is both an ethical obligation and an economic priority. Workplace injuries, time off to recover, and deaths cost companies a tremendous amount of time and money.


Competitive solutions for monitoring worker safety are incomplete or have usability issues. They rely on being tethered to a smartphone, can’t plug into a security response network, and don’t allow remote monitoring of the workers’ environment in case of an emergency.

THE SOLUTION


RiskBand and Aries: Rapid Emergency Monitoring and Response 



We developed a wearable device that doesn’t need a smartphone to operate, has a long battery life, and communicates directly with the customer’s preferred emergency response provider. At the push of a button, the device transmits near-real-time audio, video, and user location to an emergency response center. It also allows for two-way communication, so that operators can communicate with users. Operators at emergency response providers we work with are trained to listen first, so as to not escalate potentially volatile situations.




Besides providing emergency response, the RiskBand device is a valuable tool for investigations. Our software platform can retain tracking data for up to 15 days. The photos and audio taken are evidentiary-grade. The device uses first-class GPS tracking and cellular location fallback. All GPS data is timestamped.


OUR TRACTION


Strong initial growth, sustained sales during wait for upgrade

*2021 and 2022 numbers are estimates that haven't been reviewed or finalized


Starting from our launch in 2019 until December 2020, we’ve had over $500k in sales. YOY growth from 2019 to 2020 was 521%. Based on our preliminary financials (which have not yet been reviewed or audited by a CPA) we believe our revenues for the 12-month period from March 1,2021 through February 28, 2022 were approximately $584,000 as compared to approximately $557,000 for the trailing 12 months ended February 28, 2021. In Q1 2022 we have already generated approximately $186,000 in revenues from an additional 243 devices, as compared to approximately $45,000 in revenue from 44 devices deployed in Q1 2021.


We plan to continue establishing reseller relationships, and anticipate the RiskBand will have a cumulative contract value of more than $100M within 5 years. Our goal is to sell the device to businesses first, and then to consumers.

OUR BUSINESS MODEL


Subscriptions, industry resellers, and organic sales


Most of our initial sales are through resellers, including Everbridge, a leading provider of critical event management software, and Interface Security Systems, a national managed service provider for retail businesses.


B2B sales involve “planting seeds” — initial test orders are generally followed by larger commitments once the customer has used the platform and the devices. RiskBand is marketed under a two-year license agreement, with both domestic and international pricing and use case models. Customers pay subscription fees for each device they use.

THE MARKET


Supporting the mobile workforce transformation

The U.S. mobile workforce is expected to increase from 78.5 million in 2020 to 93.5 million by 2024. (Source) By the end of 2024, mobile workers are expected to account for nearly 60% of the total U.S. workforce, increasing the market of lone workers. (Source) We believe the ability to provide emergency assistance to mobile workers is going to be part of the new normal as the job market evolves. 


 

 

We believe that we have the best usable wearable emergency monitoring and response solution on the market. 


What sets us apart: 

  • Accessibility: We use a graphical user interface that can integrate with a company’s security network and be customized for different use cases. 
  • Portability and autonomy: the device does not depend on a smartphone, is compact, and weighs approximately 5 ounces. 
  • Local development and manufacturing: the device is manufactured in the US, with all our tech developed in-house
  • Turnkey solution: we offer a plug-and-play contract with Garmin’s IERCC (formerly GEOS) for companies that don’t have their own emergency response teams or 3rd-party security providers

WHY INVEST


A long road of tech and business development, entering a rapid expansion phase


Whereable Technologies has invested millions in developing its scalable software platform, and its unique devices. Bud Mayo, our CEO, hopes to carry us through a Reg A+ offering. Having taken three companies public since 1997, Bud believes that RiskBand devices are going to be increasingly necessary as the size of the lone, mobile and remote workforce continues to grow.  


Now, we are gearing up for a new phase, with strong reseller relationships and an upgraded device that we expect to roll out in Q2 2022. The new 4G-compatible device will have a longer battery life, more precise GPS, full-motion video transmission, and operate further away from cell towers. We believe that many prospective customers have held off on ordering devices until the upgraded device is available.


Once the upgraded device is available, we intend to implement a more robust marketing effort and, in the future, explore entry into the consumer market.
