Swiss telecommunication company ASCOM signs a development agreement with Compodium to develop video conferencing functionality in its new smart phone MYCO.

MYCO (which stands for “MY COmpanion), is specifically designed for communication needs within the health care sector. It is based on the Android operating system and ready for rapid integration with existing systems in the customer health care processes. MYCO also supports third-party applications, and that is where health care video services by Compodium will be the perfect fit.

Stefan Blomén, ASCOM sales manager in Sweden is looking forward to the cooperation with Compodium:

– We see huge value in using MYCO along with Compodium, the video services that’s already established in the health care sector. Now, MYCO users can establish virtual video and audio connections with experts around the clock. With a virtual colleague instantly available the MYCO users are never alone!
