The ageing of the population is creating an ever growing need for customised housing and care for older people. A reliable call system is crucial in order to guarantee the safety of people in need of care and less mobile people.
In 2007, IndigoCare, a subsidiary of the Essec Group headquartered in Paal-Beringen, created the world's first Full-IP nurse call system. Today, IndigoCare offers support in hospitals, rest homes and nursing homes with its centralised call system iCall. Worldwide, 112,000 care providers use the system to facilitate communication with their patients.
For ten years, Koning & Hartman has been a reliable partner of IndigoCare for supplying industrial PCs used as a central management system of call buttons in rooms, messaging applications and logging software.
IndigoCare was looking for a solution to guarantee the long-term operation of its care projects. Initially, embedded box PCs with a commercial licence and operating system (OS) from Microsoft were chosen.
As a result of the optimisation of integration and services in the market, IndigoCare wanted to switch to a Microsoft embedded operating system. Koning & Hartman specialists have guided IndigoCare through this changeover with their knowledge of Embedded OS functionality and its construction.
Solid and compact PCs with embedded OS are clearly a successful combination in the critical environment of healthcare institutions. Meanwhile, Koning & Hartman is already delivering the third generation of box PCs with the most recent version of Windows 10 IoT.
The cooperation with Koning & Hartman provides IndigoCare with many advantages:
Windows® 10 IoT is the newest and most secure operating system from Microsoft that can control all smart systems within your company. With this operating system, IndigoCare takes the step towards a smart and connected business environment that is ready for the Internet of Things.
