The statics show that any keyboard on average has 65 times more germs than a toilet seat. That may seem shocking, however very true. When was the last time you were able to clean your whole keyboard, between and under the keys? On most keyboards you cannot get between or under the keys without tearing the whole keyboard apart and even then may not get every germ. Even the keyboards with or without a plastic cover overlay will have crevices where viruses and bacteria can congregate no matter how many times the product is wiped down. What if you could have an easily cleanable keyboard that can be used with touch technology of a tablet that is functional for any work area? HospiTouch keyboard and glide pad (mouse) combination allows for germs to be easily cleaned away. HospiTouch has a unique; touch capacitive input device housed under a glass surface and can be operated while wearing surgical gloves. The layout is set up just as any other keyboard and is ideal for use in applications where infection control is critical. Each key is rated for over 100 million touches. The glide pad allows no need for a mouse, which will dramatically improve the cleanliness of your environment. The glass surface allows for the unit to be resistant to acid, hand perspiration, dust and fluids. HospiTouch can be easily cleaned with disinfecting cleaning supplies with one swipe – giving germs nowhere to hide!
911 Emergency dispatchers are truly some of the most amazing people. They keep calm under pressure, even when the person on the other end of line is not. They are the soothing voice that helps the panicking person on the other end of the line calm down and provide the information they need to be able to send help to them. 911 dispatchers are also the first to tell you they do not always have the best equipment due to budget cuts. Plantronics took that message to heart and for over 50 years, they have been making reliable, clear sounding headsets and adapters for 911 emergency dispatchers. Plantronics headsets and adapters are affordable and come with a one year warranty. In recent years Plantronics has taken this message a step further by creating a program just for 911 Emergency dispatch departments. Plantronics now offers a trade in program to allow 911 emergency dispatch departments to trade in their old/broken headsets and adapters. When the 911 emergency dispatch departments are ready to purchase their new headset and adapters, they will receive money off of their new headsets and adapters. It is a win/win for Plantronics and the 911 emergency dispatch departments.
The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) issue happens at any size company. Employees want to use their own devices, Apple iOS, Android, and BlackBerry for work because it is easier for them. Employees do not want to carry a second cell phone or any device for work. The issue for the company is how to protect our company’s information, while allowing the employees to use their own Apple iOS, Android or BlackBerry. BlackBerry has provided that solution with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 software. It allows any size company the opportunity to secure their work space with an app that works on Apple iOS, Android, and BlackBerry. The way BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 software secures the device is the company downloads BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 software to their server and then downloads, core starter apps such as email, contacts, calendar, and a fantastic and secure HTML5 compatible browser. The company now has secure connectivity integrated into every level of the Apple iOS, Android’s, and BlackBerry’s system. Most importantly, data in transit is routed through secure global BlackBerry infrastructure. The best part for any size company is they will no longer need an expensive VPN and deployment is straightforward. Global technical support is available. An added benefit is if an employee leaves the company or loses their Apple, Android, or BlackBerry, the company will have the ability to wipe the company’s information off that device without losing any of the data. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 software brings the BYOD secure work space to a whole new level and allows any size company a safe way to protect themselves.
