One Result and StaySafe
One Result is the technology partner for Safe Apps Ltd with Graham Mills. One Result was originally approached by Graham Mills the MD of Technics Group to develop a safety application that helped protect Lone Workers. After seeing the huge potential in the idea One Result offered Graham the option to not just pay to have the app developed but for One Result to become a partner in the project and provide reduced development costs in exchange for equity. This is something that One Result has been doing for various technology startups through the Innovation Central programme.
Graham says, “Working with One Result has been fantastic, they are technically very strong but also have great commercial awareness. This blend of technology and business acumen is difficult to find and is the reason I selected to partner with them for StaySafe”.
