Motorola Solutions, Inc. MSI recently announced that its Pronto solution is being utilized by the frontline personnel within Surrey Police and Sussex Police forces to gain immediate access to the comprehensive international criminal database of the INTERPOL. The availability of this sensitive information at the fingertips of the mobile police force is likely to help better protect the country's national security interests and combat crime.

The Pronto digital policing application software simplifies and streamlines disparate business processes from time-consuming, paper-based and resource-intensive systems into an efficient, effective, mobile and interconnected solution. This helps to break down bureaucratic silos and improve productivity. It has been the most widely deployed mobile policing solution in the United Kingdom and has been an integral part of the digitized police system since 2009.

With enhanced situational awareness, including mobile biometrics and federated searches, Pronto plays a vital role in maintaining law and order situations and improving public safety. The INTERPOL accessibility will benefit 4,500 police officers across both forces with instant data regarding all international criminal records. Security personnel can avail this information within 1.2 seconds on an average, thereby saving vital time for effective decision making. In addition, with Brexit, it has become an important resource to tap international crime data from the INTERPOL at no extra cost.

Riding on such state-of-the-art products, Motorola expects to record strong demand across video security and services, land mobile radio products and related software while benefiting from a solid foundation. These systems drive the demand for additional device sales and promote software upgrades and infrastructure expansion. The comprehensive suite of services ensures continuity and reduces risks related to critical communications operations.

Motorola intends to fortify its position in the public safety domain by entering into alliances with other players in the ecosystem. It remains poised to benefit from organic growth and acquisition initiatives, disciplined capital deployment and a favorable global macroeconomic environment. Its competitive position and an attractive portfolio for a large addressable market augur well for long-term growth.

The stock has gained 2.5% over the past year against the industry’s decline of 7.6%. We remain impressed with the inherent growth potential of this Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) stock.
