AmcomAmcom announced this week an update to their Amcom Mobile Connect software, which now supports Cisco wireless IP phones and Cius tablets in addition to BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android smartphones. The mobile application allows clinicians and administrators to send encrypted messages of high importance, including code calls, to distinguish them from less-important SMS messages and calls.

New features include two-way messaging with full message traceability to Cisco Unified Wireless IP phones and the new Cisco Cius tablet, as well as multiple language support (Spanish, French, Italian, and German).

“We continue our development focus on this popular product and are evolving its capabilities based on new devices in the market and input from our growing list of customers,” stated Chris Heim, President, Amcom Software in a press release. “Adding Cisco wireless IP phone and tablet support broadens the ways this powerful system can be used in hospitals to support a variety of staff.” Amcom was acquired by USA Mobility last March for $163.3M.

The Amcom Mobile Connect application separates critical messages from less important emails and SMS messages. It is also available for BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android smartphones. Other customer-requested features have also been incorporated in this version.

“Adding Cisco wireless IP phone and tablet support broadens the ways this powerful system can be used in hospitals to support a variety of staff.”

Cisco Wireless IP Phone and Cius Tablet Support

Amcom Mobile Connect now supports two-way messaging with full message traceability to Cisco Unified Wireless IP phones (7925G/7926G) and the new Cisco Cius tablet. The same active acknowledgment, separate inbox, and priority-based ring tones available on other popular smartphones and tablets are now available on these devices. Amcom continues to focus on enabling messages to be sent to an ever-broader array of devices to support the diversity of communications tools different staff members use in today’s hospitals.

Expanded Language Support

Amcom Mobile Connect has been translated to support Spanish, French, Italian, and German. The solution now automatically detects the language of the device and displays the menu and settings accordingly.

Amcom has been a member of the Cisco Developer Community since 2003. Amcom maintains certifications on a number of products which integrate with Cisco Unified Communications applications and devices. This latest release of Amcom Mobile Connect builds on this technology framework.

“We continue our development focus on this popular product and are evolving its capabilities based on new devices in the market and input from our growing list of customers,” said Chris Heim, President, Amcom Software. “Adding Cisco wireless IP phone and tablet support broadens the ways this powerful system can be used in hospitals to support a variety of staff.”
