Ascom & Schneider Electrics Proud Sponsor of Australian HealthCare Week 2015

Ascom & Schneider Electrics partnered together to sponsor the coffee cart stand at the Australian Healthcare Week. The event was held at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney on 23rd -25th of March.

With more than 500 delegates that work with the design, development, technology provision, patient experience and project management of Australian health facilities projects allowed for some great conversations and the chance to learn from industry experts and further discuss with key individuals their experiences of particular projects and upcoming deployments. 

Furthermore it allowed Ascom the opportunity to showcase the newly launched smartphone that was designed around the needs of the nurses, the Ascom Myco. Feedback on the device was enormously positive, exemplifying that our R&D team has hit the mark on the design and functionality of the device.

All in all it was a great couple of days, and a fantastic chance to engage and talk to experts in the industry.
