Convert Technologies

Our Story

Convert Technologies is a specialised and disruptive technology company dedicated to creating innovative solutions for intelligent location reporting and secure data services. Our technology platform, strengthened by the combination of these elements, has garnered significant support, including substantial funding from Innovate UK, to drive developments in the Military & Aerospace, Rail, Healthcare and Logistics sectors.

Originally focusing on home entertainment, Convert’s technology journey led to the creation of a successful Internet of Things (IoT) media platform. This exploration prompted us to delve into emerging technologies, specifically LoRa® networks and 2.4GHz radio ranging, as potential solutions for accurate location services and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Implementing robust security measures is essential for modern asset tracking systems, so the security protocols we’ve developed for 2.4GHz networks serve as a basis for securing communication when operating in tandem with Sub-GHz networks.

Our patented platform, functioning as a unified ‘dual frequency network,’ optimises and leverages the value already invested in existing Sub-GHz infrastructure. It competes with or complements solutions such as GPS, Wi-Fi, RFID, BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), and UWB (Ultra-wideband) successfully.

Recognised as global leaders, we offer outstanding indoor and outdoor accuracy, achieving approximately 95% accuracy within 2m and 75% within 1m, all while optimising power and battery consumption. To further advance the deployment of this groundbreaking technology, we are actively seeking licensing opportunities, either in whole or part, for commercial partners aiming to expand into a market projected to grow from $6bn in 2020 to $17bn by 2025, representing a compound growth rate of 22.5%.

Our Team

Convert Technologies is led by a cohesive team of skilled individuals, including the company founders and major shareholders, who have collaboratively shaped the company’s success for over two decades. With a proven track record, this management team previously established Nexsan Technologies, a groundbreaking data storage product manufacturer, ultimately selling the company to Imation Corp. for $120 million in 2012.

Our Research and Development (R&D) management team boasts a collective experience exceeding 100 years in product design and development.

Holding over a dozen patents, they excel in systems architecture, hardware and software design, and production considerations.

Equipped to guide a product from conception to full production, the team’s real-world experience in both consumer and commercial sectors positions them to deliver substantial value and support to our licensing partners.

If you’re looking to provide your customers with superior location reporting services, gaining a first-mover advantage or a competitive edge, engaging with Convert Technologies is the key to achieving success.
