Ekahau sees record growth for location-aware messaging solution sales

Ekahau : 01 May, 2013  (Company News)
Ekahau reports record growth of the company's location-aware messaging solution with a 77 percent increase in badge tag customers since 2011.

Ekahau RTLS badge tags offer two-way messaging capabilities, allowing customers to take advantage of real-time location tracking and two-way communications to ensure staff safety, reveal business intelligence and automate workflows.

Realising the potential of applying their existing Wi-Fi investment, healthcare, retail and education organizations are turning to Ekahau's two-way messaging solution to give staff, teachers and students an instant safety net. Ekahau's RTLS solution allows for:

  • Shorter response times with real-time location displayed for badge-holders near an emergency

  • Automatic alerting upon guest or staff entry into restricted 'geo-fenced' zones

  • Replacement of conventional paging systems that lack location-awareness

  • Mass communication notifications for groups or individuals

"Healthcare and education customers have been waiting for a safety alert system that avoids map look-ups and dialing," said Mark Norris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ekahau. "Ekahau's two-way location-aware messaging solution can reduce emergency response times and the likelihood of injuries."

For healthcare providers looking to lower the cost of care while maintaining patient satisfaction as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Ekahau Vision RTLS software enables:

  • Work Order Automation with badge-based text messaging to report the condition and location of assets

  • Asset Tracking, Utilization Reporting and Par Level Management, including movement history reports (Forensics Replay) and user-defined event categorization (eg Code Blue, Code Red)

  • Location-based Patient Safety, Bed and Throughput Management for patient visibility

  • Wireless Temperature Monitoring and Reporting for cost-effective Joint Commission compliance

  • Optimized Patient Queuing to reduce wait times and improve satisfaction

"Operating an efficient organization depends on more than simply knowing where an asset is located in the building. Customers want new ways to review and analyse asset data, and to make better business decisions based on the intelligence revealed by our RTLS solution," said Norris.
