Signature Devices, Inc. and Innovo Technology Announce 10,000 Teacher Drive to Arm Our Schools with Technology Initiative

May 22, 2018

IRVINE, CA, May 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Signature Devices, Inc. (OTC PINK: SDVI) and Innovo Technology, a leading software and hardware development company, is announcing a new strategy to launch the Knoton Platform. The company’s overall strategy has been divided into two parts; deliver the software version then deliver a highly specialized hardware product.

“With the latest news of the tragic school shooting, I feel compelled to spring into action and deliver a product to the market that can help stem the damage from the all too regular occurrences of school violence. As a small startup, we have decided to dedicate our precious resources to accelerate the development of the Our School Emergency Notification software product, The Knoton App. The Knoton app will be launched within the next two months as full-fledged mobile app.” Said Inas Azzam, CEO of SDVI

“Our company will no longer sit idle while our children and teachers are in harm’s way in our schools. Effective immediately we are starting our “10,000 Teacher Drive to Arm our Schools with Technology” initiative. The goal is to put 10,000 copies of our Knoton app into the hands of our teachers, students, and school administrators for free,” said Inas Azzam, CEO of SDVI. The company is asking anyone who knows a teacher, student or school admin to submit a request for a free app. SDVI will send an activation code and the app to each person once it’s ready. Applications can be submitted online at http://knoton.io/ArmOurSchools.

The second part of the company’s strategy is to focus on continuing the development of the advanced physical hardware to supplement the app. “As we continue to develop the hardware platform, we are developing new IP technology, so before we release the new specs for the hardware, it’s important that we protect our technology with patents,” said Gus Khatib, Director of Technology at Innovo Technology. SDVI is currently in the process of retaining an IP law firm to file patents for new technology and algorithms in the development process. Due to IP protection of new technology added, the company will also be pulling its KickStarter campaign effective immediately and will relaunch the effort in the near future with more advanced technology and more intelligent algorithms. More details will be announced in the near future.

According to the Washington Post “More than 214,000 students have experienced gun violence at school since Columbine at 216 schools. At least 141 children, educators and other people have been killed in assaults, and another 284 have been injured.

In 2018 alone, there have already been 16 shootings — the highest number at this point during any year since 1999.” SDVI is using technology to minimize the pain, suffering and casualties of these devastating events.
