Chiptech is very pleased to announce its entrance into the United Kingdom and European markets under the leadership of David Hammond, who has been appointed as CEO. David has had a long and established record in the technology-enabled care market, innovating new products and services with Chubb and UTC, and will be the driving force behind business development in the UK and Europe.
Chiptech is a privately owned company specialising in the design and manufacture of high quality telecare products, including Apps and cloud software, that help people to live independently, safe and well. The use of advanced technology ensures that Chiptech solutions are at the forefront of the digital transformation, now offering an extensive range of innovative solutions to the UK market.
Established in the year 2000 in Christchurch, New Zealand, Chiptech has developed into the leading provider of monitored personal alarms in Australasia. More recently, Chiptech has provided a range of products to support the government assisted rollout in Australia of digital solutions, to replace analogue copper landline devices. With well over 200,000 systems now in use, Chiptech’s experience can help lead UK Telecare providers, with a proven technology pathway that will assist with their digital journey.
Chiptech digital telecare products are recognised for their ease of use and reliability, while promoting independent living inside and outside the home. They are designed with a strong focus on automated safety checks in the base units and the help buttons. Events are logged and reported to monitoring, giving peace of mind that products will operate as expected in an emergency.
While Chiptech supplies end to end solutions, they openly work with other providers including Tunstall and Verklizan (UMO) and those offering open European monitoring standards, to report directly into their monitoring software. All Chiptech digital solutions are supported by an experienced team of engineers through the fleet management platform, SmartCare Cloud; including the ability to update devices while they are in the field.
We wish David well in his new role.
