At this time of year, it is good to reflect on what has happened in the past 12 months as well as consider what the future holds. We spent 2017 getting from Innovation to Product, both for our own ideas, and those of our customers.

From our own perspective, the highlights are as follows:

Consentua consent screen

Consentua consent screen


Our Consent management software, Consentua, was launched at VivaTech in Paris.

Along with fantastic feedback, we recruited several early adopters. With GDPR upon us, 2018 is looking very bright, but this is just the start. Consentua gives citizens choice and control over what personal data they share with a brand.  It enables organisations to be transparent,which builds trust with users and encourages a more open digital economy.

Entelligently app

Our new comfort management solution for commercial buildings, Entelligently, completed a successful Energy Game Changer project funded by InnovateUK.  

This was with our partner PCSG. Next year, our collective focus is on delivering more pilot sites. This will help refine the consulting service PCSG provide and automate the decision support that Entelligently can deliver to facilities managers.  

Helping our customers go from innovation to product

From our customer’s perspectives, the innovation to product strapline is just as valid.
  • MobileID has increased the functionality of its portID identity verification service and moved from the Minimal Viable Product stage into a fully-fledged customer-ready product.
  • Launch International created a new dynamic “find engine” for commercial funding which has attracted the notice of some A-list investors and is set for success.

New Developments

We have also been working on new innovations for future development. This includes a slack bot that can manage some of our cloud environments. For example, a timed shutdown of development over a weekend. We have also developed intelligent agents that can help local authorities to provide faster response times to citizen enquiries.

Plus, we connected a Smart Citizen environment sensor to the internet and began broadcasting data to the world!

The KnowNow team would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you for reading this message, and for your continued support and interest.   As well as wishing you a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year.
