U.S. Navys Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Standardizes on eRoom Solution For Global Collaborative Initiatives
Digital Workplace Enables BUMED to Proactively Manage Medical Services Through Collaboration with Colleagues Around the Globe
Cambridge, Mass., March 4, 2002 - eRoom Technology, Inc., a leading provider of digital workplaces for extended enterprise collaboration, announced today that the U.S. Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) has standardized on the eRoom® solution for its collaboration and integration requirements.
Managing the medical needs of more than 2.6 million people, located on land and at sea in a wide range of combat and peacetime conditions, is a monumental task for Navy Medicine. BUMED has deployed the eRoom digital workplace solution to create a globally accessible collaborative environment for sharing information, ideas, knowledge and expertise among its senior staff members.
Available on an around-the-clock basis, the eRoom solution enables BUMED personnel to track, manage and collaborate on documents and projects, engage in ongoing discussions, as well as streamline the processes that drive its services. From project and budget planning to pre-deployment exercises, the eRoom solution provides the virtual work environment for BUMED to unite its resources around the globe, enhancing organizational productivity and effectiveness.
“Whether staff members are at home or abroad, decisions must be made and projects moved forward,” said VADM Michael L. Cowan, surgeon general of the U.S. Navy. “Yet the complexities of staying on top of your business when people are constantly on the move are significant.”
The eRoom solution provides worldwide accessibility, low total-cost-of-ownership and open access to the applications and systems that support BUMED services.
“One of the greatest challenges global organizations face is how to bring together three key areas - the work, the team and the workplace - in such a way as to create real strategic value,” said Jeffrey Beir, president and chief executive officer for eRoom Technology, Inc. “As a company, we have faced this challenge head-on, delivering state-of-the-art collaborative solutions to the world’s most demanding customers. We are pleased to be working with BUMED as they deploy the eRoom solution to increase the efficiency of their medical services operations.”
