Cloudveil has seen a surge in demand and has secured an order whilst GyroMetric has maintained production and secured an order with a significant customer. The full updates are set out below.
Cloudveil sees an unprecedented level of enquiries
Cloudveil has seen an unprecedented level of enquiries for its services over the past two months. The enquiries have come from blue chip companies in the UK and Europe, and large educational establishments, sports clubs and public institutions. Cloudveil is engaged in detailed discussions about commercial terms with a number of these potential customers.
Cloudveil provides the following types of services:
1) Security and Risk Management consultancy
2) Intelligence Services
3) Bespoke Management Information Software
Cloudveil has recently won a contract to deliver a governance framework for the security programme of a prominent London based academic institution and is now bidding to provide a security testing programme to one of the largest public sector institutions in the UK financial services sector
Cloudveil is currently assisting two of the UK’s largest security guarding firms to manage the evolving risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Directors of RMS are supporting Cloudveil executives directly and also by diverting resources to focus upon this unanticipated demand for their services.
Cloudveil has developed a complete security framework including crisis management, which is managed and delivered through IRIS, Cloudveil’s existing bespoke Management Information platform.
Jonathan Thomas, Director of Cloudveil said: “Cloudveil will always go further to explore better ways to manage risk. Policy review, procedural growth, strategy development, improved learning methods, effective recruiting and of course technology solutions are all component parts of Cloudveil’s highly innovative approach to security risk management. We are pleased with the support shown to us by RMS as we face the new challenges and opportunities presented by the current global crisis.”
GyroMetric secures order from a global leader in marine propulsion systems as it maintains production
GyroMetric is continuing to maintain its bespoke production facility while strictly observing all the current Covid-19 safety recommendations. GyroMetric is pleased to announce an order for 10 units from a global leader in developing, producing and marketing innovative system solutions for marine propulsion systems. The client is a market and technology leader in the development of highly flexible couplings, shaft systems and elastic mounts. The order comprises 10 units and whilst the revenue will not be material for RMS, the commencement of the commercial rollout of the GyroMetric product with a world-renowned client is a further milestone and testament to the quality of the GyroMetric offering.
The recently appointed GyroMetric Systems CEO John Richardson, said “This order represents one of our major customers planning for growth in new markets, we are of course pleased to be able to maintain production to satisfy demand.”
The Company and the management teams of both businesses continue to carefully marshal the limited cash resources available at present and particularly so in anticipation of the potential for broader impacts of Covid-19 on the economy in general including in markets in which the Company operates.
Trevor Brown, Executive Director of Remote Monitored Systems, commented, “The Board of RMS has been pleased with the trajectory of its most recent investment, Cloudveil, however the recent significant upsurge in demand was unanticipated. It is too early to say clearly what the financial impact will be upon the Group’s prospects but, combined with the new order for GyroMetric products, the future looks brighter than it was the last we communicated with our shareholders.”
