We are also very grateful to our early stage partner, DBH Investment, who supported the company from the concept and start-up phase through product development, up to this point where we are ready to commercialize our products and services portfolio. As a result, we were able to close a successful series A investment round."

Gabor Vitan, CEO of Perion Investment said, "Having developed a disruptive technology ready for commercialization, HandInScan was a great match for our investment philosophy and strategy. Our team was very impressed with the product, the management and the advisory team as well. We believe that the next few years will be a turning point for the company, since the sector is foreseeing rapid transition and growth."    

Dr. Laszlo Urge Board member at DBH Investment and HandInScan added, "Teaming up with the professional team of Perion will be a good basis for continuing the corporate strategy.

From concepts to prototype and finally first product, the project was completed in 24 month. The product was validated in several healthcare set ups at different parts of the globe with over 16000 healthcare workers, and generated lots of interest. Perion can further support the next phase of HandInScan's life cycle when it will be turned from an R&D focused operation into a fully integrated health technology company. "
