Tech Data Government Solutions Partners with WiCis to Deliver Real-Time, Anywhere Monitoring Solutions for Defense and Health

Tech Data Government Solutions, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tech Data (Nasdaq: TECD), the world's leading end-to-end distributor of technology products, services and solutions, announced it will be the first global distributor for the WiCis Defense and WiCis Health set of cloud-based solutions. WiCis is a real-time biometrics platform and clinical care solution able to bring the hospital to the patient with video and live streaming of vital signs. WiCis will extend Tech Data's portfolio and provide customers with a unique solution to monitor, locate and support personnel in the field by helping address health issues as they arise.

"Protecting and saving the lives of individuals deployed remotely is a top concern for government defense. Innovative solutions like those provided by WiCis Defense and WiCis Health that support these efforts offer a great opportunity for our customers," said Milo Speranzo, director of strategy and compliance, at Tech Data Government Solutions. "Because of WiCis' ability to locate and take hospital-level monitoring and care to the patient, agencies will be very interested in this type of technology—giving our customers an advantage in the marketplace as they help their government clients navigate the challenges of next-generation healthcare."

Through the use of small FDA-approved wearable devices, WiCis Defense and WiCis Health allow for the collection of biometrics that can then be shared with physicians via GSM and Satellite networks, offering real-time, anywhere monitoring capabilities. WiCis is the first to provide the combination of video calling along with real-time biometrics merged into CareFlows to minimize paperwork for physicians, so that they can better focus on the care of their patients. The solution can also be applied to other vertical markets that require monitoring and care of people in remote locations. In addition to government applications, the solution can also be used in healthcare, adventure sports, and personal security applications.

"This partnership creates a paradigm shift in the healthcare industry, enabling the availability of real-time, anywhere monitoring for government agencies in need of this type of care," said Carlota Fenes, president, at WiCis. "This expansive reach, combined with the expertise and training that they offer their customers, makes Tech Data an ideal strategic partner for us."
