Last month, Elpas announced its plans to end of life (EOL) its real time location systems (RTLS) products. A letter on the Elpas website indicates that the decision to end of life these products was based on the overall health of the business, the amount of investment and innovation required to continue offering a competitive solution and other factors.
While we are sure this decision was not made without extensive consideration, it must put current Elpas customers in a very challenging position. The letter indicates that there are currently no transition or migration plans at this time. And since Elpas has been in business for decades, there is likely an extensive customer base left wondering: what happens once the company stops providing support for these products after June 20, 2019?
Secure Care Products has been in business for nearly 40 years. In that time, we were the first in the market to provide a wandering resident solution that enabled residents to move freely and securely about their living spaces. Decades later we were the first to provide individual protection for infants in the hospital with our KinderGUARD® solution featuring cutband technology. And in recent years we have developed our own RTLS solution based on ultra-wideband technology for superior locating accuracy.
So if you are an existing Elpas customer concerned about the future of your installed systems, we would love to speak with you about the possibility of switching to a Secure Care Products solution. We have an extensive network of distribution partners around the globe eager to help design the solution your facility needs. Whether it’s a basic door management solution, or if you’re looking for fully integrated real-time location capability, we’re confident we have a solution to fit your needs.
