Tutela Hits 200 Million Mobile Device Installs Worldwide, Collects 1 Billion Data Points Daily
Victoria, BC, Canada – June 9, 2017 – Tutela, the crowdsourced mobile data company, recently announced that its software has been installed on over 200 million mobile devices. The Victoria-based start-up, which collects and analyzes data such as mobile signal strength, is now crowdsourcing over 1 billion points daily from more than 1,000 mobile applications worldwide. These figures mean that Tutela is now the world’s largest provider of crowdsourced mobile usage and quality data.
Hunter Macdonald, Tutela’s CEO and recent recipient of VIATEC’s Emerging Leader of the Year Award, says: “Having over 1 billion daily data points to analyze gives us a unique and statistically relevant perspective into the way that mobile devices and networks are performing and being used.”
Wireless carriers, device manufacturers, hedge funds and other organizations use Tutela’s insights to gain a better understanding of mobile network quality, device and application performance and usage around the world. These insights (example: Brazil Mobile Experience Report) include mobile carrier comparisons, mobile usage trends, mobile device comparisons and detailed technical network performance statistics.
“The reports that we produce are unrivalled in that the data set is exponentially larger than what has been previously available through crowdsourcing. These insights provide mobile companies the information they need to spot network gaps and identify opportunities to invest in improving the quality of the mobile internet. To date, other companies have relied on biased data from a much smaller dataset and have been unable to provide an accurate or timely picture of how networks and devices are performing.”
Tutela does not collect any personal information or unique device data. This protects the device owner’s privacy, and ensures compliance with data protection and privacy laws such as the EU Data Protection Directive and COPPA.
Tutela Technologies, Ltd. is a Canadian crowdsourced mobile data company with offices in Victoria, British Columbia and London, England. Their location-based mobile insights help the telecoms and mobile industry improve network coverage, quality of service and related investment decisions.
