Local Company Launches Smart Tech Revolution for Worksite Management

Kamloops Innovation supported company, Lightship Works, has launched an advanced productivity and safety application for worksites. The new software provides site management teams an up-to-the-second, bird’s-eye view of an entire worksite.

Earlier this year, Lightship received $1.3 Million from American Investor, Anzu Partners.  Since then, interest in the application has been spreading throughout the mining and natural resource sectors, and the company has significant international accounts pending. This, combined with recent investment, positions the company for great successes.

Kamloops Innovation is fostering these startups and providing the vital early support they need,” commented Lincoln Smith, Executive Director of Kamloops Innovation.

“There are other companies working with Kamloops Innovation who are set to replicate Lightship’s success. These companies are bringing innovative new products and services to market and we expect to be sharing more success stories soon,” he added.
