Anywhere365 reportedly has acquired the mission-critical alarm management and IoT communications platform IQ Messenger. This is the company’s second acquisition in as many months.

The vendor-neutral software only platform interfaces with more than 140 third-party systems used in time-critical healthcare, industrial and governmental environments. It is designed to enable organizations to optimize their workflows, increase safety and efficiency, while reducing alarm fatigue and vendor lock-in.

IQ Messenger unifies alarms & IoT messages from various systems into one solution within a time critical environment. Its device-agnostic approach allows for integration of alarms from fragmented and competing systems, while simultaneously providing robust critical messaging capabilities. Due to the sensitive and critical nature of its customer base, the solution is ISO 27001 and NEN 2575 certified for information security and meets the strict medical requirements standards with ISO 13485 and CE-MDD (Medical) certification.

Anywhere365 said it sees the potential for leveraging the IQ Messenger technology and their partners. All industries seek unified dialogue, IoT and alarm management solutions to reduce unnecessary dialogues and alarm fatigue while providing filtered notifications and communication to assigned professionals. The primary market today for IQ Messenger and its global partners is mainly in healthcare organizations with critical and medical alarm distribution to healthcare professionals. The company said that it expects IQ Messenger's platform can easily be adapted to other businesses that require mission critical alarm management and emergency call out capabilities.

“We look forward to bringing our next generation alarm management and IoT distribution platform to a broader scale of business markets,” said Paul Vos, Managing Director, IQ Messenger. “Anywhere365 offers the opportunity to grow even faster and join forces in sharing technology and commercial opportunities. IQ Messenger will continue its ambition to be the leading vendor independent mission-critical messaging and notification platform.”

“The industry has proven that IQ Messenger supports the management of the most critical incidents and emergencies,” said Gijs Geurts, CEO, Anywhere365. “It's a technology that can be relied on to work anywhere, and it comes with a strong partner network. Both will be huge assets for Anywhere365 in the coming years and we even plan to bring IQ Messenger to the Anywhere365 Dialogue Cloud where the IQ partners can offer their customers the high-end IQ solution also from the Azure scalable cloud. IQ messenger will stay as well as product and recognized brand name.”
