 Using tech to grow your pest company ppc live demonstration 2020


Presented by: Norman Guiver, Founder, U Watch

With a degree in Textiles Norman entered clothing retailing and in 1981 set up a software company Microcache to develop system applying retailing principles to the bourgeoning health and fitness industry.  He invented the “Swipe” card in 1984, in 1986 implemented direct debit in all major London Health & Fitness Groups, national hotel chains, expanded into the local authority leisure centre market and installed systems in 27 University sports facilities. Sold the Company to a plc in 1999 with 84 employees.

Started uWatch in 2014 to develop a battery-powered “rat trap”.  This has turned into a sensor-rich computer called the “Cube”.  Gained the polices “Secured by design” approval for security applications and can be deployed and redeployed anywhere at any time using a roaming SIM.

Also developed BeeWatch, a pesticide monitoring system that engages pesticide users, beekeepers, swarm collectors and bystanders with applications to maximise the Swarm Harvest, a generic Citizen Science app and providing real-time alerts of pesticide use where ever it originates from.

This Seminar is held at PPC Live and is completely free to attend.
