A North West demonstration venue launched by eyevis UK has generated £3m of new businesses and provided a boost to the local economy.
The control room video wall and audio visual experts launched the facility at the Business First Burnley Business Centre in 2016 so potential customers could see their technology in action.
eyevis UK managing director Steve Murphy said that more than 300 representatives from sectors including national and regional government, security, police, security, transport, facilities management and broadcast had all visited the venue.
He added that it had also hosted a number of open days and catered for growing demand for the Burnley-based company’s products in the North West and across the North of England.
He said: “Many of our clients and potential clients are either in the Lancashire and North West area or can arrive quickly and easily at our front door thanks to the M65 and the motorway network and the superb rail links.
“It makes sense to provide a demonstration venue that gives an easily-accessible destination where people can come and see what we have to offer.
“As well as being directly responsible for £3m of new business, the venue has also provided a boost for the local economy in terms of the overnight accommodation, food providers and transport that many of our visitors have utilised.”
The venue is operated on an appointment basis and clients can provide details of the issues they face in advance so eyevis UK can demonstrate how their technology can help.
eyevis UK managing director Steve Murphy added: “Control rooms and video walls are used in a wide variety of applications, such as traffic control, transportation, energy plants, aerospace, airports, water and sewage plants, public utilities, emergency services and data centres.
“Our demonstration venue provides the opportunity to see eyevis technology in action and learn how it can help make any operation in any sector more efficient and provide operational staff with a real-time overview.”
eyevis was formed nine years ago by Burnley man Steve Murphy. It now employs seven full-time staff, as well as using subcontractors and support from other local firms in Burnley.
