Future 50 star: Simeio

The company: Simeio

The boss: Ollie McGovern

Arrive at a construction site and you’ll sign a paper sheet. It’s a messy, flawed process. But Ollie McGovern has come up with the clever notion of using biometric handsets to register workers. His Simeio handsets are quicker to use than paper, improve security and help HSE compliance. He reckons there are 186,000 construction firms in the UK alone; his devices are being used on 100 sites today – the potential for growth is huge.

Return to the Future 50 list.
