Statement from Tim Barclay, CEO of Appello, the largest telecare monitoring business in the UK and a leader in digital telecare services, regarding changes to Appello business:
“Appello is growing strongly in the areas of telecare monitoring and digital telecare services. We continue to see these as the cornerstone of our business in the future because we have distinctive capabilities and lead the market in those sectors.
“To allow us to focus on developing and improving our digital portfolio we decided, following an in depth strategic review, to sell our analogue maintenance business to OpenView Security Solutions Limited (“OpenView”). That sale has now happened, and all customers should have been supported through the change to their new provider.
“OpenView is one of the UK’s largest, privately owned, electronic security, design, supply installation and maintenance companies so they represent an excellent choice for our analogue maintenance customers.
“By focussing on the areas where our capabilities are proven to be class-leading we will now continue to build an exciting future for Appello and our continuing customers. For example, our Smart Living Solutions digital telecare systems for communal living are already the best in the market. They demonstrate how we work with housing, care and health organisations across the UK to provide services which improve the lives of customers, residents and patients.
“As we grow our business and focus on digital telecare and monitoring solutions, we will further position Appello as the leading provider of digital solutions – the fastest growing sector in the market.
“If you are a customer of any of our services, or would like to talk to us about our digital future, please do not hesitate to contact Iain Hockings on 07714 059834 (Iain.Hockings@Appello.co.uk)”
