Press release date: September 15, 2008
September 15, 2008, Dedham, MA-Humantech and AliMed inc. have joined forces to increase office productivity and improve office ergonomics. The alliance brings Humantech's ergonomic and productivity expertise together with AliMed's vast inventory of ergonomic products.
Central to this partnership is Humantech's ergoTool(TM) software solution, a web-based management tool that helps companies identify and address office ergonomic concerns and then implements customized solutions. An estimated 30% of office productivity loss stems from employees who suffer from workplace discomfort and stress-related symptoms.
James Mallon, vice president of Humantech and a board certified professional ergonomist, says "This alliance represents two powers in the field of ergonomics coming together to provide solutions for our customers. With Humantech's knowledge of ergonomics and AliMed's line of well thought-out and carefully selected products, solutions to our client's problems are easier to find."
AliMed will feature ergoTool at Ergobilities.com. Visitors can access a free, single-use version, or acquire a multi-user license. ergoTool, as deployed by AliMed, will deliver a menu of proven ergonomic solutions and offer a wide range of products to assist users with buying decisions.
From a purchasing standpoint, many ergonomic solutions involve the need for additional products, like keyboard trays or tools to adjust a monitor. With ergoTool, you'll get a look at an organization as a whole, providing a level of insight that makes planning for equipment purchases very efficient-at about one-tenth the price of competing products.
"In my opinion, ergonomics is such a misunderstood science," says Jon Bretz, AliMed Senior Vice President. "To this day, many businesses view ergonomics only as a cost, and do not equate the relationship of providing proper work environments with increased productivity. This alliance will help our customers link from a consistent, proven, and easy-to-use ergonomic assessment tool directly to products that are proven to address most workstation challenges encountered in today's high-pressured, fast-paced office environment."
Mallon adds, "All in all, the alliance provides clients with a complete solution-a simple, effective assessment linked with solutions and a straightforward process of ordering products that are reviewed by our ergonomic consultants."
For nearly 30 years, global companies have relied on Humantech for workplace improvements. By combining the science of ergonomics and our unique 30-Inch View(TM)-where people, work, and environment intersect-we deliver practical solutions that impact safety, quality, and productivity. At Humantech, we believe people make productivity happen. For more information about our portfolio of products and services or the 30-Inch View, visit www.humantech.com
