by msecadm4921

Visonic Group has announced expansion.

Visonic Technologies UK Ltd has been launched following the acquisition of Elpas Local Positioning Systems – whose BabyMatch product tackling abductions and mismatch of infants in maternity wards. The firm reports that scores of hospitals across the UK are already using its technology which includes asset tracking, wandering patient alerts and staff attack alarms.

Keith Donovan, Managing Director of the UK operation says the expansion brings new investment by Visonic Technologies which means upgrading existing systems and extending into hundreds of other hospitals, which will now benefit from improved local support to better meet individual needs.
<br><br>
Said Keith Donovan: ‘The acquisition of Elpas enabled Visonic Technologies to complement its product line, resulting in a comprehensive security platform for access control, asset management and personal security. The company will leverage its synergistic technological capabilities and strong customer base, while benefiting from the financial, manufacturing, marketing and technical support of the Visonic Group.’
<br><br>
Established in 1972 the Visonic Group serves industrial, commercial and residential markets for both personal and property needs. In the institutional loss prevention market, the medical profession is its biggest customer.’In environments such as hospitals loss prevention is becoming an increasingly important issue, as equipment becomes lighter and more compact. Visonic Technologies offers important benefits for such environments by combining access control with advance asset protection.’

Meanwhile with 116,000 reported cases of violence or aggression on NHS staff last year, also on the agenda says Visonic is personnel and patient safety. Its systems provide a alert, event and notification application for staff, allowing them to be located within large buildings to ensure help is despatched quickly.
