Former Absolute Software (ABT:TSX) CEO John Livingston Joins Telmediq

Victoria, Canada, January 20, 2015 --Telmediq, a leader in healthcare communication applications, announced the appointment of John Livingston as an Executive Director. Livingston co-founded Absolute Software (ABT:TSX) in 1995 and served as its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer until 2013. During his tenure, the company grew to be an industry recognized mobile software security provider reaching approximately a billion dollar public market capitalization in 2007. With over 25 years’ experience in the mobile technology and software industry, Livingston brings a wealth of experience in structuring go-to-market strategies and helping design and scale technology companies for accelerated growth and profitability. “Bringing on board someone of John’s calibre is definitely a game changer for us,” says Ben Moore, Telmediq’s CEO and Founder. “It increases our credibility in the market and gives us greater visibility as a fast-growing technology company. John's insights and experience will only help to fast-track the rapid growth we’ve experienced in 2014.” And growth is something that is not lost on the three-year old startup, nor on Livingston. “With the multitude of tech startups hitting the market today, it’s often difficult to discern which ones will be able to accelerate their growth trajectory while generating positive cash flow early on; I believe, Telmediq is one of those unique companies,” states Livingston. “In Telmediq I see all the right ingredients for success, but most impressive, is their dedication and focus on developing a communications service platform and a user experience, that users are genuinely thrilled about.” Livingston will design the growth strategy to accelerate the company’s acquisition of market share in the $16.1 billion healthcare IT and technology space — specifically targeting hospitals and healthcare organizations still operating with antiquated pager technology, answering services and outdated communications infrastructure.   About Telmediq Telmediq provides solutions for practices, hospitals, and healthcare systems that need reliable real-time communications that work with existing infrastructure and workflow.
