PHOENIX, Nov. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Alpine 4 Technologies’ (OTCQB:ALPP) (Alpine 4) subsidiary, Quality Circuit Assembly, Inc. (QCA) www.qcamfg.com, announced that Lattice Incorporated has transferred the redesign and production of its innovative NetVisit™ Video Visitation and CellMate® mobile phone system to QCA. The production agreement is worth an estimated $2.3 million dollars annually for QCA.
Alpine 4 is a publicly-traded enterprise with holdings across a variety of industries and product/service categories. Alpine 4 owns QCA and recently announced the expansion of its corporate portfolio by signing a letter of intent to acquire all outstanding securities of Lattice Incorporated.
A significant component of Alpine 4’s growth strategy is to share resources and drive synergies across its portfolio companies. Executing on that strategy, QCA and Lattice teams will collaborate in the redesign of Lattice’s NetVisit Inmate Video Visitation system, and QCA will handle the manufacturing of all NetVisit stations and CellMate®hardware.
NetVisit improves inmate well-being by connecting inmates with their family and friends on a much more frequent basis. The solution also generates significant operational efficiencies for correctional facilities, as it eliminates the time-consuming, costly burden on corrections staff of moving inmates for live visitation sessions, enabling staff to focus on primary responsibilities of inmate safety and security.
Lattice’s high-performance Video Visitation stations are integral to a successful implementation. The stations incorporate high-quality video transmission and a variety of inmate-driven touch-screen apps. QCA’s expertise will assist Lattice in delivering greater design innovation and production efficiencies.
Terry Protto, VP of Portfolio Management of Alpine 4, stated, “The synergies between QCA and Lattice will enable us to redesign, engineer and produce innovative new NetVisit Video Visitation stations, while accelerating time to market in a much more cost-effective manner.”
“With our NetVisit solution, we promote positive inmate and family well-being and deliver greater efficiencies to correctional facilities,” noted Paul Burgess, CEO of Lattice. “Under the Alpine 4 banner, we’re excited to share resources with QCA and take advantage of their expertise to deliver innovative, cost-efficient products and services.”
