Reading, UK – May 26, 2009 – Fast and secure access to patient files whilst on the move will be just one of the benefits IGEL Technology will be demonstrating using thin clients at Smart Healthcare Live in Earls Court, London, from June 9-10. Using IGEL Universal Desktops with integrated smartcard devices, healthcare professionals can securely log-in to any IGEL device and access patient records in under 10 seconds.

As well as ease of use, IGEL’s thin clients are ideal for healthcare environments because they are secure, unlike PCs the thin clients run from a server-based computing system with all data held centrally and not on the machines themselves, preventing sensitive patient information theft.

The IGEL thin clients are also robust and reliable because they have no moving parts, and are easy to roll-out. In fact, they can be up and running with just a few simple mouse clicks from a centralised IT team using IGEL’s Universal Management Suite software, reducing administration costs by up to 70%.

In addition to the healthcare user benefits, IGEL thin clients are also economical and environmentally-friendly with power savings of up to 51% over traditional PCs. IGEL will be using its power calculator at the show to demonstrate how IGEL thin clients can pay for themselves, in power savings alone, over a three to five year period.

In addition to the IGEL Universal Desktop range, IGEL will also be demonstrating its new IGEL one thin client. The IGEL one, at just £128 excluding vat, is designed for single campus organisations, with up to 250 users, where sophisticated management software is not required.

The IGEL team can be found at Stand M363
