QUEBEC CITY, June 21 /CNW/ - Nemex Network and Medical Intelligence
(TSX-V: MIZ) announce that they successfully deployed the Urgentys GPS
technology for the very first time during former U.S. President Bill Clinton's
visit to Quebec City yesterday. The Nemex Network security team successfully
used the Urgentys mobile GPS emergency button to enable live geo-location of a
security team and grant access at all times to an emergency button and
bi-directional audio communication.
Nemex Network organized the conference "Embracing our Common Humanity" in
which Mr. Clinton addressed the members of the Quebec City Board of Trade in a
packed room at the Centre des Congrès de Québec. Security at the venue was of
utmost importance due to the caliber of the speaker and attendees.
"The experience showed that we could see the real-time movements of all
the participating members of our security team. The Urgentys GPS device is
miniature and discreet. It does not hamper the agents' movements and
yesterday's operation proved that in case of emergency, a guard could simply
press the button for us to receive an alert along with the exact location of
the agent. We could also be able to hear and speak to the agent," stated Karl
Talbot of Nemex Network.
"Our Urgentys GPS emergency button will be extremely useful for all
members of the security industry," declared Louis Massicotte, founding
President of Medical Intelligence, the company that invented the Columba GPS
bracelet to prevent Alzheimer-related wandering. "Not only will the Urgentys
GPS product protect people who are ill or vulnerable, but the market
opportunities are so vast that we now believe that the Urgentys GPS could be
an important player in the security industry and ultimately impact security in
event management," he concluded.
"The wireless world is innovating at a fast pace," said Mansell Nelson,
Vice President of Business Development for Rogers Wireless. "Our contribution
to this world launch clearly demonstrates that our advanced network teamed up
with GPS technology can facilitate the development of great innovation such as
the Urgentys emergency button," he added.
