SCHAUMBURG, Ill. & ABINGDON, Oxfordshire, England -- April 28, 2014
Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), through its strategic investment arm
Motorola Solutions Venture Capital, has announced an investment in B2M
Solutions, a provider of mobile device analytics and process optimization
software for enterprise customers. The funds will be used to expand B2M’s
marketing and sales activities.
“Today, mobile analytics primarily focus on the data that is captured within
an application. B2M offers the ability to provide analytics at the device
level, as well as the system and infrastructure levels,” said Tony Palcheck,
managing director, Motorola Solutions Venture Capital. “B2M’s ability to
combine application analytics with lower-level, detailed data on the overall
system gives business managers new insight into the utilization and
effectiveness of mobile devices in their operations, and provides keen
insights for how to improve those operations.”
B2M Solutions CEO Julie Purves said, “We believe the strategic investment from
Motorola Solutions Venture Capital will help accelerate the adoption of our
optimization and analytics solutions for mobile enterprise deployments.
Agility, adaptability and customer-driven learning help us deliver
mission-critical mobile solutions that demonstrate real value across
end-users, processes and the entire mobile ecosystem.”
B2M’s cloud-based Elemez mobility solution was built to optimize the mobile
device and the processes controlling it. With the B2M Elemez product and its
integration into the corresponding backend operational systems, business

processes and revenue potential.

and even predict issues while devices continue operating in the field.
“This investment raises awareness about the increased productivity and
improved performance that device OEMs and other partners can gain from mobile
analytics and optimization across mobile enterprise deployments,” added
Purves. “Today our partners and customers are using only a small fraction of
