VANCOUVER, British Columbia - AMS Homecare Inc. today announced that it would introduce the latest version of its IER SYSTEMS software in March 2005.
AMS Homecare said its IER Systems division is launching its new updated software to enhance remote diagnostics and monitoring equipment for senior and health care facilities. The software will be installed at a beta site after completing thorough lab testing expected at the end of February, it projected. The new remote diagnostics will give the company an advantage, it said, for international installations as well as expansion into Ontario, Canada. Concurrently, management said it will continue to expand to the northwest United States region. IER Systems 2005 is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of March.
AMS reported that the IER System software is the program and interface media to direct selective integrated alarm systems with remote annunciation to pocket pagers or wireless telephones. This includes, local and dial-up alarm and annunciation for emergency devices, security, personal alarm, CCTV systems, and building maintenance and communication systems. The software is capable of storing a complete database for all alarms specific to system, allowing an alarm "history" retrieval report for time periods, areas, and types of calls or alarms, for nurse call and security systems.
AMS notes, IER Systems 2005 includes these and other features:
-- System operation is no longer a windows-based program eliminating windows-based problems and providing more stability, interfacing with networking and making remote access easier and safer.
-- Minimizes user problems, as the CPU operating system is specific only to the IER System software.
-- New simplified method of programming of devices and the head end equipment set-up.
-- Cleaner monitoring window with less information unless required under additional password areas over and above existing levels.
-- Software may be server based operating direct through IP address to facility locations.
-- Complete remote diagnostics for maintenance and tech service support.
-- Enhanced reporting menus for more detailed information within reports for history and set-up.
-- Multi-buildings or "community" monitoring through IP address to a central location or possible future IER Monitoring station.
