Business owners have access to actionable insights to drive better management decisions to reduce loss, mitigate risk and enhance profitability.

“We are excited to join Motorola Solutions and look forward to advancing the innovative solutions we deliver to our customers,” said Matt Umscheid, CEO, Envysion. “Together, we will continue investing in and building upon Motorola Solutions’ portfolio of video security and access control solutions and equip enterprise customers with unparalleled security capabilities.”
