Rene HeijnenCompanies are providing wireless network access to make end users more productive. This has become especially important and evident in the healthcare space where there are lives at stake. Nothing is more critical than being able to do what you need to do to save lives. This use case inspired RES Software to give IT the ability to identify an employee’s precise location to provide dynamic services, even if they are working wireless. You can serve these mobile users better with the new wireless zone rules.

The attendees here are not interested in any “Marketechture.” They don’t want any “sales pitch” they want straight-to-the-heart, deep-in-the-weeds technical content.
