Measuring and improving humanity’s footprint on the world requires an international focus.
Today, we’re proud to share two related announcements. First, we’ve acquired Prevision.io, a Paris-based engineering team focused on AI and data science. Second, we’ve hired J C Groon to lead international expansion beginning with EMEA. We’re adding sales and marketing teams based in Dublin and London.
At Density, we’re building fast, data-rich systems that provide comprehensive insights of how space is used, including the ability to easily compare the performance of spaces to one another or to portfolio benchmarks. The Prevision.io team has been building tools that bring powerful AI management capabilities to data science users so more AI projects make it into production and stay in production. At Density, they will contribute their data science expertise to scale Density’s algorithm, deployment, and analytics platform. The Prevision team will remain in Paris.
The acquisition of Prevision.io is our third in the last year. In June 2021, we acquired Nashi, a brilliant company with a fast, elegant system for allocating, managing, and reserving space, and in November, we acquired HELIX RE, a LIDAR scanning software company that creates 3D digital twins of buildings. Both of these teams and the technology they brought with them to Density have been vital to what we’re building; with Prevision.io, we’re most excited about the data science and AI acumen the team will bring to ours.
Their presence in Paris complements our broader international expansion, which will be led by J C Groon, our Managing Director of International, who joined the team in March. J C was most recently a Global Clients leader at LinkedIn, and has held roles at Cisco, NAVTEQ, and Accenture; he brings more than 20 years of experience building go-to-market strategies, developing products and services, and leading strategic initiatives. He will be focused on establishing sales and marketing teams in Ireland and the UK.
EMEA has some of the most advanced privacy protections in the world. Our position on privacy is unique amongst providers in EMEA. Our goal is to deliver valuable insights to companies without compromising employee privacy. We’ve also found customers in EMEA are leading the way in awareness of measuring and reducing their carbon footprint. Leaders in the region understand that measuring and optimizing physical space is a meaningful way to reduce their operational costs and environmental impact.
Our customers are already using Density globally – sensors are already deployed in 32 countries. Building a team in EMEA is a natural step as we continue to scale operations and deliver for customers. If you’re looking to join the team and help us on our mission, check out our open roles; if your company is based in Europe and you’d like to learn more about how Density can help you measure, analyze and optimize your physical space, you can request a demo anytime.
