The chief executive of the crime analytic software company, Craig Richardson, said Wynyard was going to focus first on selling its software to Motorola's 12,000 customers in the US, which include small enforcement agencies that probably would not otherwise be able to afford Wynyard's software.

Mr Richardson said Wynyard was not changing its revenue forecast for the current year, as it was going to take a few months to scale up to meet the larger market opportunity, which he estimated was between $US600 and $US800 million.

"This will be a slow burn, slow ramp-up. We've already agreed some minimum revenue requirements this year and we've already built those into our forecasts for the year."
