2015 has been a year of strengthening our foundations and expanding our reach, with regard to our products and services. In addition to the digital forensics realm, we have established relationships within the accident reconstruction and insurance fraud investigation communities.
In 2015, iVe’s supported vehicle list grew exponentially — including the addition of our first foreign manufacturers: Fiat and Maserati. Because iVe can be used globally, it’s been our priority to continue development of forensic support for foreign OEMs. We’re proud to say that over the past year, we’ve added BMW, Toyota, Volkswagen, Seat and Skoda to our repertoire. That brings our list of supported vehicles to over 4,600.
Our Vehicle Forensics & iVe Certification Course has been incredibly successful. In 2015, we held 21 training classes across the globe – nearly double our numbers from 2014. We’ve also had the opportunity to attended and speak at several more conferences than previous years. We’ve traveled all over the world this year: the UK, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Australia, Africa and Japan – so we can get to know our customers and experience first hand what issues investigators are facing. It’s important to us to go the extra mile (quite literally) to ensure our product meets the needs of clients worldwide.
Green Means Go…
We are looking forward to 2016 and the opportunities it will bring. We are extremely excited to release support for several European OEMs in the beginning of the year. This is special for us because many of these vehicles are not distributed within the US. Being able to have such a release further solidifies our relationships with European organizations.
This coming year, look for one of our training events or certification courses in your area, or perhaps an area you’d like to visit. Miami, San Jose and Austin are some of our first stops, with other planned events in the UK, Netherlands, and Australia. Come by the Berla booth at a conference – we would like to show you all the new gadgets and gizmos.
It’s going to be a busy, fantastic year and we hope that we will get to share it with you. Your support is truly appreciated, and we look forward to the opportunity to continue working together in 2016.
