Exacq Favorability Results 2019

By: IPVM Team, Published on Jan 17, 2019

Exacq favorability amongst integrators has declined sharply, in new IPVM statistics, compared to 2017 IPVM statistics for Exacq.

Now, over 5 since Tyco acquired Exacq, 2 years since Exacq co-founders exited and just months after the ex-Exacq founders launched a competitor Qumulex, the now JCI-owned VMS company is declining in favorability.

While Exacq still has a net positive favorability of +22, that was cut more than half from 2017's +46. The image below shows the 2019 results:

And this graphic demonstrates the shift between 2017 and 2019:
