Onset Technology launched OnPage, a first of its kind
smartphone pager and Priority Messaging Application for mobile devices from
Apple and RIM.
With pagers still in use by physicians, first responders
and other business professionals, and with over 450 million smart phones on the
market, OnPage eliminates the archaic need to carry two devices for these
individuals that require the ability to prioritize messaging beyond email, SMS
and phone calls.
In addition, the new service enhances traditional paging
with a more intuitive user interface that mimics the collaborative and
confirmatory functionality of email, with group messaging, text response and
message delivery and read notification.
A reliable, hosted service with global coverage on
cellular and Wi-Fi networks, users can easily download OnPage directly to their
device and start using it immediately without servers or infrastructure
For healthcare professionals in particular, OnPage
signifies a new wave of trusted and proven priority messaging tools that
provide the unprecedented ability to send and receive critical messages
privately, securely and reliably.
The healthcare industry is still reliant on what most
professionals view today as an outdated technology the pager. Up until this
point, our physicians have used a traditional pager to help them keep priority
messages distinct from other, less urgent communications. Unfortunately, with a
one-way communication system, reliability and responsiveness have always been a
concern,” said Adam C. Marks, director of Business and Technical Operations,
RSC New England, a Massachusetts-based fertility center.
OnPage has mitigated those issues for our organization by
enabling our physicians to use their smartphones to send and receive priority
messages instantly. The application provides physicians and the organization
with an audit trail that the page was sent, delivered and read, eliminating the
need for pagers and follow-up phone calls, and shortening delivery and response
time during emergencies.
Whether you are an -on-call’ healthcare professional or
a busy parent in need of a direct line to your children, paging and priority
messaging continues to serve a critical communications need. However by forcing
individuals to carry an additional and bulky device with limited functionality
there are inherent limitations in this aging technology,” said Judit Sharon,
CEO of Onset Technology.
OnPage is designed specifically to solve these critical
priority messaging issues by transforming a user’s smartphone into a single
device for all communications needs.
Overwhelmingly, the feedback we’ve received from
thousands of beta users validates the need for this service, and with the
general availability of the applications and service for iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry users, we are truly excited to bring paging into the 21st
Century,” Sharon added.
