About the Company
In less than three decades, the mobile phone has gone from being a status symbol to being a technology that facilitates almost every interaction in our daily lives. Smart phone traffic is expected to reach 9.6 trillion messages this year.
Anybody can connect to everybody, anytime, from anywhere. In a world with 4 billion mobile phones in use, some 300,000 apps will be downloaded nearly 12 billion times.
Even so, law enforcement is challenged with how to engage citizens in a two-way connection that helps solve crimes and close cases. How can cities change the way they communicate with citizens? The solution is iWatch, iThinQware's mobile technology platform for law enforcement.
iThinQware is a software development company dedicated to better educating Americans by delivering reliable communications tools that help law enforcement agencies empower, inform, educate, motivate and interact with the community at large. With a mix of closed, open and combination data warehouses, the company’s products allow law enforcement to deliver information to the right audiences, in the right format, via the right communications method.
Daniel R. Elliott ~ CEO & Founder
Dan Elliott is the genius behind iThinQware, and the products he has developed are the direct result of personal pain. Mr. Elliott has not only been the victim of crime and interpersonal violence himself, but his family and colleagues have been equally affected by personal tragedy caused by criminal actions.
When Bridget Phillips, fiancée to Steven Elliott, Dan Elliott’s brother was murdered that summer night in 1989, no one knew the killer, no one knew the motivation, and no one has to this day, offered tips that could have solved the death of a Johns Hopkins University Graduate Student. There were no smartphones that could have tracked her killer. There was no social media that could have posted a request for clues. There was no Clery Act, requiring the Campus Police to reveal its investigations and subsequent actions to resolve the case that is to this day unsolved.
Eleven years later, Dan Elliott was doing something many of us do without a second thought. He stopped in a neighborhood where he’d lived a few years earlier to make a quick phone call at the old convenience store.
What ensued, however, changed his life forever. With a gun suddenly shoved underneath his ribs, Mr. Elliott was ordered by the man standing behind him to hand over his cash and car keys. Fortunately, the mugger took only Mr. Elliott’s material possessions, leaving him with something much more valuable than money—his life. What has also remained with Mr. Elliott is the realization that if he had known his old neighborhood had changed for the worse, he would have stopped somewhere else. Since that moment, he has been keenly aware that not everyone in his situation would have been fortunate enough to escape unharmed.
Again it was the absence of a solution. The absence of communications from police. The ignorance of the public that a serial robber was working in that formerly friendly school district that made Mr. Elliott the next victim. Mr. Elliott was left with a deep sense of responsibility toward the safety of the people around him—a responsibility that has driven him now for nearly two decades to find a way to help prevent the same thing from happening to others. iThinQware is the result of that profound determination. His desire to inform communities of crimes and alert individuals to potential dangers is the force that continues to guide him. When asked about his work and dedication to this project, he only has one thing to say: “I believe my life was spared for a reason, so it’s my responsibility to pay it forward.” As the founder of InteloQuence, Inc. and iThinQware, Inc. he’s spent the past ten years chipping away at the giant stone of crime prevention and crime reporting. No longer a private struggle, this project is now a public success as iThinQware launches each new iWatch system.
His background in branding, product development, product management, distribution channel management, marketing and sales gave him not only the skill but also the resolve to make the product successful. The resulting output of code, corporate identity and web presence has yielded the company the position it has, and the opportunity to compete without comparison.
Mr. Elliott is an executive whose successful track record in data management, telecommunications, technology infrastructures and sales channel development for Fortune 200 firms include Miles Laboratories, Emerson Manufacturing and Technology, Wescom, Honeywell International, General Signal Corporation, Executone Systems, InteGo Nursecall, DuKane Corporation, Sensormatic Electronics Corporation and Auth-Florence/Gibraltar Industries, as well as mid-tier firms including Bison Gear & Engineering, Prater Industries, Norix Group and William W. Meyer & Sons.
He is a marketing and branding powerhouse, with a balanced sense of market need and the branding voice of the company’s products. All aspects of product ideation, strategy, design, sales, marketing and implementation came from his imagination and was delivered by his own hand.
Now, the skills found in Mr. Elliott have been the standard for the selection of teams in each area of the operations. It’s this high expectation, high discipline, higher outcomes that drives the business forward in each marketplace and on each product.
