Arrow Labs Officials Meets With City To Discuss Digitization Plans

Monday, September 9, 2019

The city of Chattanooga is one of the first cities in the U.S. to offer giga-bit speed internet connectivity to its local businesses and residents, and the first city in the U.S. to have a solar powered airport. Sharing in the city’s vision of innovation is Arrow Labs, a Dubai-based tech company that has developed a workforce management platform, MIMS – specifically designed for the management of field employees.

The software has been deployed across industries such as logistics, hospitality, municipalities, facility management, security, emergency response, maritime, aviation and transportation, around the world. Its most innovative smart wearable, the MIMS Watch, was dubbed the “corporate Apple Watch”, due to the range of functionality and benefits it provides the non-desk workforce and their management, said officials.

Continuing digitization plans of the city were deliberated in further detail during the kickoff meeting that took place with Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke and Arrow Labs CEO Rami Darwish. The discussion pertained to wearable technology, machine vision, data analysis and management of the city’s field assets, which aligns with Chattanooga’s leadership objective of providing better services to the city’s constituents and constantly developing the skill set of the its workforce to adapt to modern technologies, said officials.

Mayor Berke said, “We’re always looking for ways to advance what we do with technology, and we are excited to explore Arrow Labs’ technology and the value it can add to our workforce, businesses and subsequently, the lives of our people.”

Mr. Darwish said “It is very impressive to witness the technology initiatives that are being undertaken by Mayor Berke and the city of Chattanooga. It is highly encouraging to learn about the future plans of this tech-driven city, and we’re committed to exploring all the possible ways Arrow Labs can help contribute to its success."

Mr. Darwish is returning to Chattanooga for follow-up visits with Hands-On Platform demonstrations as a result of his previous visit. He said he is drawn to Chattanooga because of the gig speed, friendly attitude toward start-ups, the tech quadrant, logistics, and the forward thinking solar airport. He is visiting Chattanooga seeking business partners for his Dubai tech company, Arrow Labs.
