HealthTronics Deploys AirWatch Platform for Enterprise Mobility and Content Management
With Half of Its Workforce Operating Exclusively on Mobile Devices, HealthTronics Unifies Endpoint Management With AirWatch EMM and AirWatch Secure Content Locker
Austin, TX Jan 15, 2015 — AirWatch® by VMware®, the leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider, announced today that HealthTronics, Inc., a top provider of integrated urological and interventional radiology products and services, has selected AirWatch for enterprise mobility and content management. The deployment of industry-leading AirWatch EMM and AirWatch Secure Content Locker® file sync and share enables HealthTronics to manage its mobile workforce from the simple, unified AirWatch platform.
As a newly-independent company following a successful spinoff, HealthTronics chose AirWatch to deliver a single vendor platform solution for more than 650 devices and 500 employees. With about half of its workforce operating exclusively on smartphones and tablets, content collaboration was also a key component in selecting AirWatch. After evaluating multiple providers, HealthTronics chose AirWatch EMM and then implemented AirWatch Secure Content Locker as it met its stringent enablement requirements. The solution from AirWatch provides IT a seamless experience across device types for EMM, content collaboration and file sync and share.
“We selected AirWatch EMM and Secure Content Locker to leverage a unified platform that lowered costs and increased ROI,” said Evan Bowers, CIO, HealthTronics. “The platform provides a deep level of granularity on user security controls and in-depth reporting capabilities. Secure Content Locker delivers true content control and document tracking for IT and mobile user collaboration and annotation tools for our end users. AirWatch gives us the information about implementation and usage detail we need in the regulated healthcare industry.”
AirWatch enables HealthTronics to benefit from sizable economies of scale, including an integrated administration platform, reduced IT overhead, reduced procurement and implementation issues and reduced total cost of ownership. Secure Content Locker helps with the company’s content management needs, including secure content viewing, document management, editing and annotating on mobile, content tracking, analytics and secure sandbox email attachments.
“Operating within a heavily regulated vertical, HealthTronics found itself in need of quickly standing up both EMM and MCM platforms,” said Tony Rizzo, entrepreneur in residence, Blue Hill Research. “Having already selected AirWatch by VMware for EMM, we were impressed with HealthTronics ability to quickly deploy AirWatch Secure Content Locker – solving two problems with one well-integrated ecosystem.”
“AirWatch by VMware enables healthcare organizations like HealthTronics to drive mobile innovation and revolutionize the industry with access to real-time medical information, customize consultations and maintain patient-clinician communication while adhering to HIPAA regulations,” said John Marshall, senior vice president and general manager, AirWatch by VMware. “We’ve dedicated significant resources to create the broadest platform and depth of expertise that empowers healthcare organizations to address challenges in the industry, from remote home health organizations to the largest healthcare systems in the world.”
