INVISIO Interim Report January–June 2020: Intensified focus on the law enforcement and security market

CEO comment
”In the second quarter of 2020 INVISIO developed well and in accordance with the adopted strategy, which means continued focus on product and organizational develop­ment in R&D, sales and marketing. The focus includes intensified penetration of the law enforcement and security market. During the quarter, the company also won several smaller orders for the Intercom system and received initial orders for the personal system in new markets in Asia. The impact on operations of Covid-19 is limited to cancelled or postponed trade exhibitions and some delay in global supply chains and administrative processes among customers,” says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
