Electronic Monitoring programs tend to evolve over time so we devised a single program that allows the flexibility to customize monitoring programs and shift between monitoring tools as needed with our Integrated Monitoring Platform.
Flexible interchange between equipment models, communication channels and monitoring technologies can be performed within the same program. This capability creates a versatile, multi-function monitoring program that can support varying requirements while adhering to stringent industry standards.
