Scott Adams – Chairman, Integrity Tracking (DBA MobileHelp)
“FAU’s College of Business prepared me well for my entrepreneurial journey since graduating. Being able to locate MobileHelp in the Research Park is an ideal solution for me, having studied at FAU, served on the Board of Trustees, the Foundation Board, and many other advisory councils and committees, as well as establishing the Adams Center for Entrepreneurship. The collaboration that we have started with the College of Engineering’s Center of Advanced Knowledge Enablement (CAKE) has allowed our company to accelerate a key product development initiative to the point where we are now better prepared to move forward with deployment.
MobileHelp has grown and matured rapidly since moving into the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University to the point that we are now considering incubating new ideas within the company that could potentially become spin-out tenants in the Technology Business Incubator.
All of the concepts that we are nurturing are related to our core philosophy of building quality products, listening to our customers and being responsive to their needs. We are, and always will be, a customer driven company. Our employees are encouraged to be innovative and to constantly throw out ideas, and we have implemented an internal review process to ensure that every stakeholder has an opportunity to be heard. To continue with our long term growth, we have initiated a process to develop an enhanced quality assurance processes (ISO 13485) which is a comprehensive management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices. We have to balance these needs with the core philosophy of being customer centric, responsive and innovative.
The current economic climate has facilitated new opportunities to be innovative. With finite resources, many families are struggling with keeping their aging parents or relatives in their own home and maintaining their desire to be independent, thereby reducing the cost of long term residential care. We are responding by integrating new offerings to enable them to meet their needs. The growth in home health technologies and the uncertainty in overall healthcare policy in the US have presented us the opportunity to grow and meet the market demand.
The Research Park is a great interface between the business world and the University community for us, and is a place for to us to grow, collaborate on R&D and find great people to work with us.”
