“Real time reports would be an add on"

It does not provide real time reports on the emergency situations happening around. This can act as a alert. Rest its one touch function is great along with automated upgrades.

EATON CORPORATION Presence in Mass Notification Systems Solutions
Eaton Corporation is a diversified industrial company engaged in fluid power systems, electrical systems and automotive components. The timely strategic acquisitions have helped it to expand its expertise and customer base in various markets. The acquisition of Cooper Industries in 2012 was a fine strategic move which positioned it among the leaders of incident and emergency management hardware and software. The company has a direct and indirect presence in 175 countries across all the regions of the globe. Strong partner channels constituting of strategic, solution, and technology partners have also been the core of Eaton’s competitive strength. Though Eaton provides mass notification products and solutions for various industries, including commercial, government, military, and energy & utilities. Since its incorporation, Eaton has recorded significant revenue growth. During the last few years, there has been a consistent dip in its overall annual revenue, due to volatility in its end markets. However, considering its geographically diversified customer base, Eaton has a healthy revenue mix from all the regions across the globe. Despite enjoying strong viability, Eaton has lagged behind other vendors in the adoption of various smart initiatives such as partnerships, acquisitions, and business expansions during the last year in the MNS market. Apart from launching Eaton Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) in June 2016 and Crouse-Hinds series EBMX technology in May 2016, Eaton have not undertaken organic or inorganic growth initiatives. Average organic growth and poor inorganic growth may dent the prospects of Eaton when compared with other key vendors in the MNS market.
