ATLANTA, Aug. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Utility today shared its second-quarter 2022 results, showing the technology company’s continued growth. Expanding further across the United States, Utility earned 19 new law enforcement agencies, adding 2,153 new devices to bring the total to 9,202 new devices YTD.

In May, Utility unveiled new names and logos for core products and introduced a new product, HELIOS by Utility™, as part of a comprehensive rebranding effort to complement the company’s accelerated expansion. At the forefront of the brand evolution was the name change of three core Utility technologies to align the company’s expanding—and growing—universe of innovative products and operating systems. Product evolutions and introductions included:

  • EOS by Utility™: With a name to match its luminary qualities, Eos, formerly known as BodyWorn, is a body-worn camera for solution-seeking agencies, ushering in a new dawn for digital video surveillance.
  • POLARIS by Utility™: Previously known as AVaiLWEB, Polaris is a powerful, cloud-based digital evidence platform that offers users a wide range of features and case management capabilities. As a seamless, all-in-one evidence management system, Polaris guides Utility clients with total transparency and sets a new standard for tracking and backing up the truth.
  • ROCKET by Utility™: RocketIoT is now Rocket. Just as its name implies, Rocket by Utility is a state-of-the-art, in-car communication platform that takes situational awareness to a whole new level. With multi-dimensional capabilities and secure evidence-gathering automation, the Rocket delivers comprehensive, time-saving intelligence.
  • HELIOS by Utility™: A central evidence management platform created for district attorneys’ offices; Helios provides the power to organize files from multiple agencies into one unified view. The SAAS-based DEMS sheds light on all aspects of case management, allowing law enforcement to collaborate quickly, securely and efficiently with the justice system to bring speed and transparency to the legal process.

Utility increased new contract bookings this quarter by 76.2 percent in the second quarter, totaling $8,311,424. That includes new contracts with 12 city police departments; four county agencies; one state police department, Vermont; one university medical center, University of Mississippi Medical Center, including over 100 officers; and one public city water supply company. This quarter, contracts committed more than 2,000 new devices supporting law enforcement personnel to the platform.

Additional Q2 insights include:

  • Utility’s platform is actively managing more than 9.5 petabytes of media.
  • Utility’s platform managed the addition of more than 4.3 million incidents through the quarter, more than a 12% increase from Q1 2022.

In the second quarter, Utility’s team grew by 28 employees, surpassing the 100-employee mark. The leadership team expanded to include Product Management, International Business Development and Sales Leadership. Additionally, many key roles have been filled to support our continuing growth in the areas of client support and project management.
