Red Oxygen Brings Efficient Real-Time Communication to the Healthcare Industry

SMS (Text Message) Technology Allows Faster Response Times and Immediacy without Intrusion

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Red Oxygen, one of the world’s leading developers and distributors of Enterprise SMS / Text messaging software applications and services, is bringing the speed, security and convenience of text messaging to healthcare companies around the world. With text messaging, companies can get critical information to large groups without the burden of dialing every member or relying on people to have access to email.

Businesses such as Austin’s Brightstar, Siemens Medical Solutions and Pfizer rely on Red Oxygen to mobilize workforces and communicate with employees without interrupting important activity.

“Text messaging saves us the time and cost of calling each member of our workforce when a new case comes in or a patient needs care,” said Chad McCall, Owner of the Austin franchise of Brightstar Healthcare, an in-home healthcare services provider. “It allows us to respond quickly to patient or employee needs and also gives us a competitive edge by allowing us to react rapidly to requests for new business.”

“Business like those in the healthcare industry, that often have mobile workforces, need reliable, secure and immediate methods of communicating to large groups of people,” said Tom Sheahan, CEO of Red Oxygen. “What many people don’t realize is that simple function phones vastly outnumber the amount of smart phones being used around the world today. Text is an immediate and an unintrusive way to share critical information.”

Red Oxygen provides SMS gateway solutions integrated into Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes and also via the Web and will be the first SMS technology to support Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Unlike other less secure SMS gateway solutions available, which are often used for mass text-marketing campaigns and SPAM, Red Oxygen focuses on business use cases that allow organizations to operate more efficiently. Red Oxygen’s integrations with the largest email clients, relationships with carriers worldwide and the speed and reliability of its international network means customers can count on increased efficiency and no down time.
