Ekahau Inc., the high-performance leader in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) using Wi-Fi, announced today the availability of the Ekahau Mobile Vision™ (EMV) application for Ekahau Vision™, the company's real-time location software platform.
The EMV mobile application allows users to use their mobile devices to view and respond to real-time asset and location-based events and alarms.
Ekahau's Mobile Vision™ application enables Ekahau Vision™ end users, including caregivers, to respond to staff emergency, patient safety and asset-based events with simple, one-touch commands via iOS-based personal or work mobile devices, such as the iPhone. Ekahau Vision™ end users can register a response to events on their mobile devices, and their responses to events are instantly recorded in the Ekahau Vision™ software platform, for further analysis.
In addition, RTLS managers and end users can view events and event history as it happens, on their smartphones without having to use an Ekahau Wi-Fi tag or access a web browser in order to respond to alarms, alerts and events. Managers can also delete, cancel or acknowledge Ekahau alerts and requests via the EMV application without logging into the Ekahau Vision™ user interface on a desktop.
"Healthcare professionals work on the go -- they're rarely sitting at their desks," noted Mark Norris , President and CEO of Ekahau. "That's why Ekahau's Mobile Vision™ application ensures that our users can immediately respond to events in real-time, anytime, anywhere. Our RTLS users gain real-time workflow intelligence without lags or delays and end users can respond to events more quickly, on the go."
The Ekahau Mobile Vision™ mobile application for Ekahau Vision™ will be available to Ekahau customers from the Apple App store, in the 2nd quarter of 2013. Android support is expected in the 3rd quarter of 2013.
