Motion and Sig-Tec Partner for Healthcare Organizations

By PRESS RELEASE — February 06, 2009

Motion Computing, a leader in mobile computing and wireless communications, and Sig-Tec, a leader in identity and access management software solutions, announced that they have created a partnership to deliver industry-leading solutions for mobility, information security and clinical workflow. The partnership comes after several joint client initiatives at major healthcare and academic organizations where the companies implemented solutions that improve workflows, free up resources and improve patient experiences.

Motion and Sig-Tec jointly support their solution through Motion's Mobility Solutions group, a dedicated team that specializes in creating the best working environment by maximizing mobility, technology and software as they team with their clients to understand desired clinical workflow behavior and wireless network infrastructure needs and requirements. With the addition of Sig-Tec's identity and access management software, organizations have the ability to quickly address application management (single sign-on), identity management (strong authentication) and session management (fast user switching, hot desktop, single patient selection/context management) for ultimate workflows.

"Motion is pleased to be working with Sig-Tec, an industry leader in identity and access management software. Sig-Tec's software solutions can enhance the mobility offered by Motion tablet PCs by enabling users to more quickly access information while computing on-the-move," said Mike Stinson, vice president of marketing, Motion. "Sig-Tec's flexible, scalable solution is an ideal fit for healthcare customers that are looking for ways to make processes faster and easier for their organization and want to leverage the full mobility of tablet PCs with enhanced authentication capabilities."

An example of the solution is deployed at a major university healthcare organization. Of the many configuration options available, the solution establishes improvements to workflow including one-step biometric fingerprint authentication for clinicians to gain access to applications and patient records on Motion C5 mobile clinical assistants (MCAs). Clinicians need access to the MCAs and applications upwards of 100 times a day. Now, rather than manually typing a username and complex password each time, adding minutes to each interaction and detracting from overall patient care, the C5s with embedded fingerprint readers and Sig-Tec's AppStarter SSO solution allow the clinicians to significantly improve the speed, ease and accuracy of patient care.

Whether healthcare organizations are just beginning to investigate mobile solutions or are seeking to improve existing identity and access management processes, Sig-Tec and Motion have proven experience in delivering industry-leading solutions. The companies will work together to make the solutions available through Motion's network of distribution partners.

"Sig-Tec is pleased to be working with Motion, an industry leader in mobility healthcare solutions. We both have seen firsthand with our clients the many difficulties associated with meeting the necessary but often troubling healthcare requirements for privacy and security," said John McGuire, national sales manager, Sig-Tec. "With our combined solutions we can improve the speed and performance of user workflows while addressing those requirements that usually have a negative impact on end-user experience."

Based on proven market successes, Motion and Sig-Tec will initially focus on the healthcare industry, but intend to expand service availability across enterprises in vertical markets seeing to deploy mobility and identity and access management solutions.

Sig-Tec is a software engineering company that has created a winning suite of Identity and Access Management solutions that raises the standard for performance in today's IdAM market.
