Swittons launches biometric security device, adds Microsoft Teams integration for IoT products
P360 subsidiary Swittons has launched a new fingerprint biometric device and added Microsoft Teams support to enable easy voice, video and online collaboration with its IoT devices, the company announced.
Swittons provides remote, on-demand communication, saves time and reduces risk for companies operating in healthcare and life sciences, such as pharmaceutical commercial, clinical and patient services organizations, healthcare providers and physicians.
The new fingerprint device model increases security and helps the physician know exactly who the customer is, according to the Swittons website.
“By integrating with Microsoft Teams, our complete lineup of Swittons devices are now able to facilitate remote communication that includes voice, video and online collaboration at the push of a button,” said Swittons CEO and Founder Anupam Nandwana, in a prepared statement. “This not only saves organizations time and money, it gives them a way to connect with customers, patients and partners in a deeper, more meaningful way. And our new fingerprint model adds yet another layer of protection to help ensure data security and compliance while using the devices for additional use cases.”
Swittons IoT devices are customizable, compatible with commercial technology infrastructure and the Microsoft ecosystem, and come programmed for four different predefined functions.
“By integrating their solutions with Microsoft Teams, companies like Swittons are able to add value by putting employees of healthcare organizations in a position to succeed in every customer, patient and partner interaction,” said Mike Ammerlaan, Director of Microsoft 365 Ecosystem marketing at Microsoft Corp, in a prepared statement.
To address the needs of healthcare and life sciences organizations, including real-time, on-demand communication for a remote team, individual accountability, schedule control, and increased brand awareness and sample facilitation, Swittons is built on Microsoft Azure. Healthcare and life sciences professionals can use the service to request samples, schedule sales visits, book medical science liaison (MSL) consultations and access important medical information. The company says its smart devices take little desk space and automatically connect through a Wi-Fi or GSM cellular connection.
