nGenX Corp. has announced a co-marketing agreement with Wallace Wireless for a hosted version of Wallace’s WIC Pager application, developed for the health care market. As a hosted solution, nGenX manages the implementation and daily support of the WIC Pager from its SAS 70, Type II certified data center which eliminates the need to purchase hardware or overburden an IT staff with the management of the paging solution.
The WIC Pager solution replaces traditional pagers by integrating paging functionality into BlackBerry smartphones. The nGenX Hosted Messaging Bundle is HIPAA-capable and also includes Exchange e-mail and BlackBerry Enterprise Server management. With this tool, physicians and other health care personnel satisfy all their communications needs, including phone, e-mail, calendar, contacts, SMS and paging, with a single mobile device.
“Our Hosted Messaging Bundle gives rural health care providers the communications and paging experience of a large hospital solution anywhere they receive a cell phone signal. This is an ideal and cost-effective solution for areas with spotty pager coverage,” said Robert A. Bye, executive vice president, nGenX. “Because the solution is hosted from our data center, it enables the small or rural health care practice to deploy a HIPAA-compliant paging solution similar to large hospitals without the up-front capital expenditure.”
“We see how our customers such as the Boston Medical Center can improve their patient care metrics by using our WIC Pager solution. We know that at the right price, small and rural health facilities will greatly benefit from this solution as well. The nGenX hosted solution is priced on a monthly subscription basis, making it an affordable paging replacement solution,” said Mark Pletsch, director of marketing, Wallace Wireless.
In related news, nGenX announced it has renewed its membership in the BlackBerry Alliance Program as a BlackBerry Alliance Elite Member. BlackBerry Alliance Elite Members represent technology and brand leaders that foster innovation and channel opportunities for the BlackBerry platform and have the opportunity to work closely with RIM on joint marketing, sales and customer engagements, the company explained.
nGenX is also a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, and the combination will help nGenX offer an integrated communications bundle which includes Exchange e-mail, BlackBerry Enterprise Server and third-party line-of-business applications in a hosted environment.
