|01.26.04 - 1.27.04 Navicare Integration
We've had a number of recent inquiries regarding
the announcement of Navicare Integration. An overview
is detailed below:
Navicare's hospital system uses real-time communication
and workflow tools to improve patient throughput efficiencies
across organization. More than just a scheduling or
patient-tracking tool, NaviCare provides actual, detailed
information reflecting what is happening throughout
the organization at any given time. NaviCare provides
immediate patient flow information, utilizing PageGate
for notification of alerts or status changes, thus
smoothing out the patient flow process within a facility.
By using PageGate in conjunction with Navicare's system
alerts can be immediately sent to physicians and support
staff's pagers and cellular phones.
|01.24.04 - 01.25.04 Identity Theft & Phones
Keep a watch out for people standing near you at
retail stores, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.,
that have a cell phone in hand. With the new camera
cell phones, they can take a picture of your credit
card, which gives them your name,number,and expiration
date. Identification theft is one of the fastest growing
scams today, and this is just another example of the
means that are being used. Be aware of your surroundings.
|01.22.04 - 01.23.04 T-Mobile & TAP / Navicare
One of our support technicians was able to track
down a TAP number for T-mobile! This number has been
tested and works. Please contact
us in order to get the TAP number.
We've just launched an integration profile detailing
how NotePage's software works with Navicare
details can be found in the integration section.
|01.20.04 - 01.21.04 Verizon SNPP Down
We've received reports that the SNPP for Verizon
Pagers (snpp.airtouch.com / 188.8.131.52) is down
and has been for a few days. I don't have any details
as to when they expect to resolve this issue.
|01.18.04 - 01.19.04 Limitations
As many of you are aware NotePager 32 is free, free
to download, free to give to your friends, and free
to use forever. The limitations are that the text
messages can only be sent out via modem, this is the
old traditional way of sending text messages to phones
and pagers. If your carrier supports the newer protocols
utilizing an internet connection you cannot use NotePager
32. In order to send messages using any protocol other
than TAP (through the modem) you will need to upgrade
to one of NotePage's other titles.
If you require assistance determining which application
would best suit your business or individual needs
please feel free to email
us, phone 781-829-0500 or post in the forum!
We'd love to hear from you.

|01.06.04 - 01.07.04 Integration
One aspect of our business (NotePage) that we are
focusing on for the coming year involves expanding
our integration relationships. NotePage works with
a number of other developers to provide an added level
of notification (specifically paging, text messaging
and SMS capabilities) to existing software applications.
The program is free to participate in and is extremely
flexible. We promote our partners through our network
of 60 websites, and have found that the relationships
are mutually beneficial. The applications that tend
to have the most success (or need for added notification)
usually involve some sort of monitoring or tracking.
If you have an application that you feel would benefit
from integration please contact us or review the general
information found in the integration
Rarely are coding changes required, and we will work
with you inorder to facilitate setting up a profile
and marketing information for existing NotePage customers.
