MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- PostPath, creator of the only email and collaboration server that is a drop-in alternative to Microsoft Exchange, today announced continued adoption of its PostPath Server and WebMail with live deployments at major regional hospitals and healthcare organizations. Moses Taylor Hospital, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System and Southeast Alabama Medical Center have each deployed PostPath Server and WebMail to users in production environments in order to combine native Outlook and mobile device support, offer full-featured webmail to all staff and reduce overall infrastructure costs.
Healthcare organizations today face a number of challenges with their email and collaboration systems. They are looking to provide email to knowledge workers such as nurses and orderlies who may have previously lacked email access and who often use shared workstations; they want to provide full email capability via mobile devices to enable healthcare professionals to spend more time with patients and less tied to their desks; they need a Microsoft-interoperable system that can interface with their other devices and applications, and they need to do all of this with limited IT staff and budget.
Many healthcare organizations have standardized on Exchange but are struggling to contain infrastructure costs while rolling out Outlook support, expanding mailbox sizes, or fully integrating with Web-based and mobile technologies. In the past there has not been an alternative to Exchange that is natively interoperable with desktop, mobile and infrastructure applications healthcare organizations need to use. With PostPath Server, healthcare organizations can move from high-priced licensing fees and expensive hardware to a scalable, flexible, easily managed and affordable alternative. And PostPath WebMail provides an excellent solution for hospitals who want to roll out email to workers without previous email access, using shared workstations and avoiding the incremental licensing costs of Outlook.
