NetMotion Mobility Provides Lifeline for Puget Sound Blood Center Mobile Workers

Software Delivers Secure and Persistent Connection Between Staff and Its Mission-Critical Blood Establishment Computer System

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - NetMotion Wireless, provider of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software, today announced that Puget Sound Blood Center (PSBC) will expand its NetMotion Mobility® software installation enterprise-wide to ensure mobile blood drive workers have uninterrupted access to the organization's central Blood Establishment Computer System (BECS). With NetMotion Mobility -- the most trusted platform for improving productivity, security and control of a mobile workforce -- PSBC is better able to deliver on its mission to collect precious blood components for patients in need.

"When working with donors on mobile blood drives, our staff needs a permanent connection to BECS so they can confirm whether donors are eligible to give blood," said Tony Sheehan, Network Services Manager at PSBC. "If we don't have the connection, we can't access that donor record information, causing delays or wasting critical time for our donors and staff. Mobility ensures seamless system access for not just these teams but also for other employees working remotely."

In addition to keeping PSBC employees connected from wherever they need to work, Mobility delivers:

  • Standardization - Uniformity makes IT management easier, while allowing everyone -- not just certain users -- to get and stay connected.
  • Ease of Use - Getting a connection is as simple as opening a laptop. More importantly, if employees enter a cellular "dead zone" or close their laptops, the application survives.
  • Security - Mobility meets PSBC's rigorous data security and donor and patient confidentiality requirements, including HIPAA compliance.

For several years PSBC ran Mobility on a portion of its approximately 350 corporate laptops and a separate mobile VPN solution from Citrix on another group of laptops. After evaluating the two solutions side-by-side, the PSBC planning team determined that Citrix users reported regular connectivity problems. As a result, they decided to adopt the more dependable Mobility across the enterprise. A full-scale rollout is planned for 2014 that will include laptops, tablets and handheld scanners.

"This is a great example of a customer evaluating our solution against a competitor only to realize that going with NetMotion was and continues to be the right choice," said Tracy Crowe, Director, Product Marketing, NetMotion Wireless. "I applaud the team at PSBC for also recognizing the full benefits Mobility brings to their entire organization by standardizing on us. With such an important mission, we couldn't be more pleased that PSBC is depending on us."
