Envu Announces Sale of its Rodent Monitoring System to Woodstream Corporation Effective January 12
Woodstream VLINK Devices Already Integrated with RMS Platform Through Current Collaboration
[Cary, North Carolina, January 15, 2024] — Envu, an environmental science company providing forward-thinking innovations that protect and enhance the health of environments around the world, announced today the divestment of its Rodent Monitoring System (RMS) to Woodstream Corporation, a global manufacturer of rodent and animal control products.
Featuring the latest IoT and sensor-based technology, the proprietary RMS is a wireless network of high-tech sensors that, when added to rodent traps, displays data from each monitor on a central RMS portal. With its integrated data-analysis software, the innovative platform allows pest control operators and facility managers to monitor facilities more efficiently for rodents and track trends that might indicate a persistent issue. By retrofitting traditional rodent traps with the RMS system, pest control operators eliminate the need to manually check each trap — a task that can be very time-consuming in larger facilities.
Envu has an existing partnership with Woodstream, whose category-leading Victor® brand rodent traps pair well with the Envu RMS. Through a two-year collaboration, Woodstream’s VLINK® devices are already integrated with the RMS software platform.
“As a focused environmental science leader that’s dedicated to 360-degree innovation, Envu is committed to developing forward-thinking solutions in a variety of forms,” says Envu Head of Commercial Operations, North America., Mark Schneid. “We are proud to have developed the RMS in response to an industry and customer need; today, we’re equally proud to pass the baton to a partner and leader in rodent control to continue to evolve and build upon this important digital platform.”
The Woodstream leadership team says this acquisition will help round out its portfolio of connected rodent control devices.
“By combining the RMS sensor technology and supporting platform with our best-in-class devices and infrastructure Woodstream can offer our customers an end-to-end fully integrated rodent monitoring system,” says Woodstream Vice President, Victor® , Ashley Brown. “The real-time data the system provides will help keep facilities safe and rodent-free in a more strategic, efficient and sustainable way.”
Envu sees this transaction as a win-win for both companies as well as customers.
“With this sale, we know that we are leaving the RMS technology in good and capable hands,” said Schneid. “At the same time, it enables us to invest in other areas of our business to continue bringing new innovations to our customers.”
The two organizations will work together over the next 90 days to shift the operational business from Envu to Woodstream. They’re committed to ensuring a smooth and seamless transition for customers.
