Children's Health Associates Reduces IT Costs and Complexities with Ericom's Server Based Computing Solution


A Large Private Healthcare Organization Deploys Ericom PowerTerm® WebConnect to Achieve Centrally Managed and Secure Access to Mission Critical Applications

Closter, NJ. – June 19, 2007 – Ericom Software, a leading provider of Enterprise-Wide Application Access solutions, today announces that Children's Health Associates, a large Northeast healthcare provider and CHA, LLC, the provider's management company, have implemented Ericom's Server Based Computing solution, PowerTerm WebConnect. Deployed across the organization, PowerTerm WebConnect enables the practice and its management company to centralize management and administration of applications - lowering licensing costs and enabling compliance with security regulations.

Children's Health Associates needed a solution that would improve healthcare processes by providing on demand access to medical and billing information. By implementing PowerTerm WebConnect, the management company is able to provide access to applications residing on Windows Terminal Server 2003 and legacy applications running on SCO UNIX and IBM UNIX from Wyse thin clients and legacy PCs. The organization chose PowerTerm WebConnect because it optimized their thin client environment with a centralized point for installations and upgrades---significantly lowering the organization's support overhead. For secure remote access, AEP's SSL VPN appliance integrates with PowerTerm WebConnect for end-to-end security.

William B. Cox, Chief Information Officer for CHA, commented, "PowerTerm WebConnect has enabled us to eliminate the need to update and configure individual PCs – saving us valuable time and resources. Even with our applications residing on a server, PowerTerm WebConnect enables us to provide our users with the same experience, as if they were locally running their traditional desktop applications. When we discovered PowerTerm WebConnect's benefits, we couldn't imagine going with anything else."

Ilan Paretsky, Ericom VP of Marketing, commented, "Ericom is excited to provide CHA, LLC with a Server Based Computing solution that's robust, yet cost-effective. PowerTerm WebConnect empowers organizations with the ability to address everyday IT challenges, such as reducing the cost of managing applications and desktops, business continuity, IT optimization, and privacy of information. Ericom looks forward to working with CHA and Children's Health Associates and further enhancing their application access environment."
