LaaSer Critical Communications Named a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company

Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State's Technology Community

ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, today announced Techstars company LaaSer Critical Communications as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2017 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 23, 2017, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

TAG'S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia's technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.

"The 2017 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia's Technology community," said Larry Williams, president & CEO of TAG. "The 2017 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia's technology community."

This year's Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 110 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the "Top 40" will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2017 Georgia Technology Summit.

"An extraordinary number of truly innovative technology companies participated in this year's Top 40 competition, demonstrating the depth and breadth of Georgia's technology community," said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, CEO of Zinc., and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. "In fact, based on the quality of the contestants, we could have had a 'Top 60' without losing a beat."

LaaSer's patented technology solves the all-too-common problem that when you call 911 from your mobile phone, operators can't accurately to locate you. The current system doesn't access any of the rich location data that lives on today's mobile devices. The FCC estimates that over 10,000 lives could be saved every year by reducing 911 response times by just 60 seconds. LaaSer makes that possible today without a smartphone app, and without the need for 911 call centers to install new hardware and software systems.

"Since we first heard about the issues around 911 location for mobile phones, we've been dedicated to solving this deadly problem," said Fred White, cofounder and CEO of LaaSer. "To be selected as one of the most innovative companies in Georgia helps validate that we have have found an innovative solution to a clear problem that can genuinely impact people's lives."

The 2017 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,300 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia's technology community. In addition to presentations from some of the top technology influencers in the nation, the newest member of the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia will be inducted.
