China senior living market attracts U.S solution providers
#Tel-Tron Technologies Corporation is now the first U.S.-based company in its market to provide solutions for use by senior care facilities in China. Scheduled to open in May 2012, Cascade Healthcare will utilize Tel-Tron technology in its Shanghai location, the first facility of its kind in China.
“Although the Chinese culture has historically embraced the notion of family caring for elderly in the home, a number of evolving factors are creating a huge opportunity for senior housing in China”, says Rick Taylor, Tel-Tron Senior Vice President of Market Expansion. “The potential growth of the China senior living market based on census data alone is staggering.”
Through a significant product development investment, Tel-Tron enhanced their solution, which was already available in English, Spanish and Portuguese languages, to also be available for customers who use the Simplified Chinese language. All caregiver, resident and administrative touch-points were adapted to make the solution more intuitive for indigenous users.
“Converting our product for use in China was a challenge because, in contrast to Indo-European languages, the Chinese language is far more complex with its multi-byte ideographic characters”, says Jason Rogers, Tel-Tron Director of Marketing and Product Management. “As an outcome of this investment, our product line is now capable of supporting any language and can be implemented globally.”
