JENNY GILRUTH MSP MEETS WITH GLENROTHES DIGITAL INNOVATORS 

 

Glenrothes MSP, Jenny Gilruth, today (Friday) met with Ember’s Chief Executive, Joe Henry and co-founder Steve Wexelstein to discuss the company’s work. 

 

Ember is a Glenrothes-based software company which specialises in digital innovation. The company’s work has included developing the award-winning RealRider app, which detects when a motorbike crash has occurred and has the power to alert emergency services.

 

Discussing the visit, Glenrothes-born Chief Executive, Joe Henry commented:

 

‘It was fantastic to welcome Jenny today and to have the opportunity to explain what we are doing, right here in Glenrothes. 

 

We are experts in the use of technology for engagement and behaviour change with a particular focus on workplaces. Our new digital product, called SPARK, helps organisations to unlock the full potential of their workforce by doing things like; improving their workplace and organisational culture, improving health and wellbeing of staff, stimulating innovative ideas and recognising good performance

 

We would like to work with forward- thinking organisations in Fife to use SPARK to generate some fantastic case studies and give us some feedback’

 

Commenting, Jenny Gilruth MSP said: 

 

‘It was great to meet with Joe and Steve to learn more about Ember’s work. The company have a specialism in digital innovation and it was really impressive to learn more about how Ember’s programmes can support local business. 

 

From promoting health and wellbeing, to supporting sport in the workplace to developing software to alert emergency services in the event of a road traffic accident - I was struck by the innovation and dedication of this local Glenrothes-based business. 

 

I’d like to wish Joe, Steve and all the team involved at Ember the best of luck for the future’.
