And products continued to evolve with numerous updates. Learn all about this and more in this 2019 Year in Review post.
In January we launched our Tip Tuesday blog series full of tips and tricks to help our users get the most out of the Amped solutions they already own or have on their wish list! You can find all of these tips on our blog here. We’ll be adding more in 2020, so remember to subscribe to get these directly into your inbox.
Quite a big and important change happened in February. We established a new business entity and a new team in the USA to better serve our customers in North America. The new business entity is called Amped Software USA Inc. and is based in Brooklyn, New York, and is a fully owned subsidiary of Amped SRL, the Italian headquarters. Our goal is to now work more closely with our customers in the USA and Canada and to offer them the level of professionalism and consistency that we at Amped Software have tried to foster throughout the world. So, for all software sales and training in North America, please remember to contact us through the new business entity above.
In February we also released Amped FIVE 12727 which included Timeline, Multiview, HEIC support and more. Read more about this update here and watch the video to see the new features in action.

We are so proud to announce that Amped Software has once again been recognized as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), ranking for the second year on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500.
“I am really satisfied with the results achieved
again this year in Technology Fast 500 EMEA. It would be difficult to continue
to maintain high growth rates for a long time without revitalizing, and for
that reason, this year we decided to expand in two different directions,” states
Martino Jerian, Founder and CEO of Amped Software. “At the corporate level,
we opened a new office in the United States to better meet the needs of the North
American market and to have a stronger and more direct presence. We also
expanded our product offerings with a new software solution aimed at a wider
market. Up until last year we were completely and exclusively focused on the
needs of the specialized forensic labs, but this year we launched Amped Replay,
which now makes our technology accessible to frontline police officers and
investigators, enabling them to deal with video evidence easier and faster. I want
to thank again this year my entire team, that is continually growing, and that made
all this possible.”
