October 30, 2018 – Wavelink, a leader in providing enterprise solutions to the channel, is teaming up with its New Zealand partner, Everlea, to showcase the Spectralink Versity clinical smartphone in Wellington at HiNZ, New Zealand’s largest digital health event.
The Spectralink Versity clinical smartphone will be available for sale in Australia and New Zealand in November, coinciding perfectly with HiNZ. Wavelink and Everlea will showcase it for the first time in New Zealand at the event.
The Spectralink Versity is the industry’s first purpose-built smartphone for clinical use. It features best-in-class voice and data quality, application integration, and durability. The slim, lightweight device is ideal for healthcare workers and the truly hot-swappable battery means there’s zero downtime.
Recent research by Frost & Sullivan confirms that healthcare organisations should avoid relying on consumer-grade devices and instead, invest in purpose-built devices that offer better Wi-Fi connectivity, longer and more versatile battery life, tested integration with industry-specific applications such as nurse-call apps, and other features that support the specific needs of healthcare workers.

Alan Stocker, health practice lead, Wavelink, said, “The healthcare industry has been looking for a mobile communication device with all the ease-of-use and familiarity of a consumer smartphone plus the unique clinical features of healthcare-grade device.
“Putting all this functionality into one smartphone-like device that’s easy to use will help practitioners save time, especially if they’re in a time-sensitive or emergency situation. They need a device that feels familiar and offers the functionality they need, from communications, emergency or duress notifications to the ability to manage medications and patient transfers.”
Visit the Spectralink stand at Booth 87 at HiNZ from November 21-23 to see the Spectralink Versity in action.
