ATLANTA, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, today announced LaaSer Critical Communications as one of its Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2017 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 23, 2017, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
The "Top 10" most innovative technology companies are chosen from among TAG's "Top 40" 2017 list and were chosen based on a number of criteria, including: degree of innovation; scope and financial impact of innovation; likelihood of success; and promotion of Georgia's innovative efforts nationally and internationally.
"The Top 10 awards are given to an elite group of companies whose products and solutions are not only changing their respective industries, they are also putting Georgia on the map as a state where technology innovation can thrive," said Larry Williams, president & CEO of TAG. "We applaud each of these companies for standing out as leaders in Georgia's technology community and look forward to showcasing them at our annual Georgia Technology Summit."
LaaSer's patented technology solves the increasingly common problem that when you call 911 from your mobile phone, operators can't always locate you accurately. The current system doesn't access any of the rich location data that is available to the wide variety of connected devices in the market today. With LaaSer it is possible for people to call for help from not just their smartphone but from a wide variety of connected devices. And LaaSer makes this happen without the need for 911 call centers to install new hardware and software systems.
"We started LaaSer with a singular mission – to make 911 work the way you think it already does," said Fred White, cofounder and CEO of LaaSer. "Along the way our scope has grown as we apply these concepts to other ways to connect people with first responders. This award validates just how big this problem is and how far we've come in solving it."
