ESCO Technologies Partners With InTouchLink On User-Friendly Communication Platform For Senior Communities
CommunityEngage Simplifies Messaging, Internet Access, Training and More for Residents, Families and Staff
Liberty Township, Ohio and Toronto, Ontario – ESCO Technologies, LLC announced it is partnering with InTouchLink to offer CommunityEngage — a simple, user-friendly communication platform for residents, family and staff of senior communities.
InTouchLink is the premier technology solutions provider to senior housing operators, serving sites throughout Canada and the United States. ESCO’s award-winning CareConnect managed services solution is the only integrated telecommunications suite designed specifically for the senior housing market. It includes residential and business telephone, TV, and Internet, as well as the new Smart E-call wireless nurse call system.
CommunityEngage will be available immediately as a value-added option to CareConnect and will utilize InTouchLink’s patent-pending technology to offer:
- A robust communication link between residents and their families
- An internal messaging tool
- A complete learning management system for staff
- A 24/7 community news and information source
- A simplified, senior-friendly internet and email platform.
“Our two organizations have a shared mission, which is to develop solutions that meet the specific needs of senior living communities,” said ESCO CEO Jerry Grove. “We looked at InTouchLink’s outstanding technology and felt it was a perfect complement to CareConnect.”
“Everyone within the senior care environment deserves to be connected,” said Jonathan Seliger, Vice President, InTouchLink. “That includes not only residents, but also their families — and the staff who serve them. CommunityEngage, along with the rest of the CareConnect suite, delivers on that goal.”
The addition of CommunityEngage comes just weeks after ESCO announced it was acquiring ERS E-call, whose patented nurse call technology it used to develop CareConnect’s Smart E-call system.
“This is another key step in our multi-year growth strategy, aimed at making us the foremost one-stop technology solution for senior living,” said Grove.
