Yenra : Wireless : Wireless Systems Reliability : Ensuring highly available information and data access at any location

IDG's Computerworld today announced the winners of its "Best Practices in Mobile and Wireless" Awards Program sponsored by HP. Guidant Corporation was named a winner in the "Systems Reliability" category based on a case study highlighting their successful implementation and deployment of Synchrologic Data Sync, a component of the award-winning Synchrologic Mobile Suite.

Many of Guidant's field reps utilize their mobility solution on site in the operating room to provide technical assistance related to the device and to record implant procedures for FDA regulations. Guidant's solution uses Synchrologic Data Sync to send and receive this product data to 1300 field representatives using laptops connected to the network via wireless, dial-up or broadband/VPN.

The "Best Practices in Mobile & Wireless" award acknowledges Guidant's IT department for their successful implementation strategies and programs to ensure highly available information and data access at any location--at the doctor's office, the hospital or even the operating room. This enhanced level of field support allows Guidant to provide unparalleled customer service to physicians, heart failure specialists and patients.
