'As mobile device usage explodes within the senior care industry, facilities are realizing that just rolling out Wi-Fi isn’t enough...' - Kurt Mills, Aerohive Networks, Inc.
Orangeville, ON (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
CareWorx Inc., a leading technology solutions provider to the North American senior care industry, announced today that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Aerohive Networks, Inc. (NYSE:HIVE), a leader in controller-less Wi-Fi and cloud-managed mobile networking. The partnership enables CareWorx to provide powerful, secure, and flexible managed wireless network solutions to the growing North American senior care market.
“Everything is going mobile - no business can escape it, but the ones that can’t keep up will have the hardest time staying in business,” said Mark Tomzak, CEO of CareWorx Inc. Mark has been involved in the senior care industry for over 20 years, and has witnessed the dangers of pragmatism toward technology. “Although the adoption of technology in senior care is advancing, the biggest obstacle faced in that adoption is in finding a solution that can keep up with the rapid pace of change. That’s where Aerohive fits in. The impetus isn’t just on the mobile workforce, either. Families, visiting professionals, even the residents themselves are all demanding access to a Wi-Fi signal. All that attention puts a lot of pressure on wireless networks, not to mention online video and music streaming services that can steal bandwidth from mission critical applications.”
CareWorx has been promoting and providing technology solutions exclusively to the senior care market for more than 10 years. Aerohive’s proprietary mobile networking technology offers senior care organizations enterprise class features and functionality that help support the growing need for a robust and cost effective wireless solution. Their cloud-based mobile networking tools are intelligent enough to identify and segment access to a wireless network based on application request, location in a facility, even device type and ownership. This level of management helps ensure that mission critical apps are prioritized over general consumption.
“As mobile device usage explodes within the senior care industry, facilities are realizing that just rolling out Wi-Fi isn’t enough—facilities need properly managed Wi-Fi that can meet mission-critical healthcare IT demands,” said Kurt Mills, vice president of channel sales, Aerohive. “At Aerohive, we’ve devoted resources to understanding the unique Wi-Fi challenges of senior care providers and providing Wi-Fi solutions tailored to enabling their success. As a leading solution provider with established long-term care expertise, CareWorx is the ideal partner for us to better penetrate the market and enable digital-savvy senior care,” Mills concluded.
