Wavelink, a value-added distributor of enterprise mobility and unified communications solutions has launched a new division focussed on the health industries markets in Australia and New Zealand and has named Paul Craven to lead it.
Wavelink said Craven would “focus on bringing together solutions for Wavelink’s partners targeting public hospitals, private healthcare groups, and aged care facilities across Australia and New Zealand.”
It said the establishment of its health practice would provide a level of specialisation to its partners by providing end customers with comprehensive solutions, not just hardware. “The premise of the practice is to build solutions from use cases that improve patient care and drive operational efficiency.”
It said use cases could include location-based services, duress, surveillance and workflow management.
Wavelink managing director, Ilan Rubin, said the company had invested heavily in its product portfolio, “bringing on new vendors that can meet the unique demands of the healthcare sector.”
To support its health practice, Wavelink says it will distribute a number of additional related products and applications, which complement its core Spectralink offering.
These will include: Australian-based Olinqua solutions, which deliver duress, messaging, location tracking, and task management into healthcare; Canadian SOTI enterprise mobility management solutions encompassing mobile security and device management; LAS middleware solutions, which enable wireless devices to communicate with a range of nurse call, messaging, and alarm systems predominantly in the aged care space; COBS Smart1 DECT (for voice) devices with an integrated Android app platform with Wi-Fi (for data), announced in June 2016.
