Snap One increases investments in software development

Snap One announced that it is increasing investments in software research and development with approximately $65M funds pumped in annually for R&D.

A large portion of the investments will be going to the 150-person software development team.

David Moore, EVP of engineering and technology at Snap One, commented: “As we continue to release innovative hardware products and remote services, along with integrating new third-party solutions, our software investments will ensure enhanced reliability and strengthen customer trust in our valued partners and hardware brands.”

The company is also focusing on enhancements to its OvrC remote system management platform, as well as Araknis, Control4, Luma, Binary and WattBox products. Operations-focused improvements include reducing Control4 mobile app connection times, increasing intercom reliability and using predictive tools to proactively prevent more than 40 outages.

Alex Mann, senior vice president of engineering for cloud, data science and cybersecurity, remarked: “Right now, we remediate more than 20 vulnerabilities each month to stay ahead of hackers, which is a never-ending battle. At the same time, we are continually adding to our total cloud storage and processing capabilities and have boosted our cloud infrastructure to provide 99.95 percent reliability in more than 100 countries.”

Moore concluded: “We are making it easier for our partners to install, program and troubleshoot systems; making it easier for our users to customise and reliably enjoy their experiences; and making it easier to keep up with future needs through new architectures, expanded cloud capabilities, and consistent third-party driver development.”
