Austin, Texas [February 27, 2020] (ORIGINAL: BUSINESS WIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced that it has added one of the top rated cancer hospitals in the United States (the “Cancer Center”) as a new customer for its mobile digital front door solution.
Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform helps patients and clinicians demystify the healthcare journey for both families and staff. MaaS enables feature-rich mobile application solutions for healthcare providers so that they can better engage their patients across a continuum of care while optimizing both operational and staff efficiencies, lowering costs and boosting revenue. Platform integrations with Electronic Health Records (EHRs) such as Epic and Cerner, and telehealth service providers such as Amwell, completely eliminate the pain of having to manage dozens of point solutions while simultaneously offering patients and families a far more simplistic, cohesive and integrated healthcare experience.
“MaaS provides our customers with a true digital front door for their patients and staffs, either end-to-end as a complete turn-key solution off-the-shelf, or as software components and tools that they can license, incorporate and build on their own through convenient and frictionless Github downloads and a comprehensive learning management system known as the Phunware Phenom Certified Developer Program,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “Missed appointments cost the US healthcare system more than $150 billion every year, so we’re extremely excited to enable such a prominent, globally recognized healthcare organization to better manage their patient and clinician experience across more than 14 million square feet of facilities spread over a 40 block downtown metropolitan area.”
A key competitive market differentiator for customers with MaaS interested in delivering a true digital front door is Phunware’s patented Location Based Services software and Beacon Management Solution. These native, mobile-first capabilities deliver proximity, sub one-second real-time blue dot indoor positioning, navigation and wayfinding functionality across any campus or facility while simplifying and streamlining the underlying beacon deployment and management for both the facility staff and administrators alike. These mobile solutions are not only ADA compliant, addressing the needs of anyone who is visually impaired, hearing impaired or wheelchair bound, but also transition seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments.
In addition to delivering the Company’s patented Location Based Services software to power the Cancer Center’s own custom mobile application portfolio on iOS and Android, Phunware will also provide its proprietary Web Wayfinding capabilities through the Cancer Center’s website. This innovative new capability allows users to plan their visits ahead of time from their home to their final destination with pinpoint accuracy, while also routing them to the best-suited parking garage for their visits.
A parallel focus area for the Cancer Center is to provide visitors and guests with the opportunity to explore their campus in between appointments and visits with both entertainment and dining options. Along with the Company’s proprietary Web Wayfinding solution, the Cancer Center will also deploy Phunware’s Hospital Kiosk solution which will be available on vertical displays throughout their campus and facilities.
