Voalté Inc., an innovative health care communications technology company in Sarasota, plans to expand its current facility and add 50 jobs in the next three years. The company, which was founded in 2008, created a smartphone application that enables healthcare professionals the ability to communicate via smartphone. Sales of the technology have been successful and the company is preparing for a growth spurt.
"We are adding 30 percent space at our current facility this year," says Rob Campbell, CEO of Voalté
. "We are targeted to triple in size over the next three years."
The company's growth can be attributed to the growing popularity of smart phones and an aging population.
"With the growing number of aging baby boomers, there is more and more pressure on hospitals to offer more services," Campbell says. "The number one root cause of serious events at hospitals is poor communication, therefore improving communication at the point of care is top of mind. We at Voalté find ourselves at an ideal spot for success between the dramatic growth of health care intersecting with the dramatic growth of smartphones and tablets."
Along with the expansion of Voalté's facility in Sarasota
, there is a need for additional staff to support operations at the growing company. The business currently employs 22 people, but plans to add 50 positions over the next three years.
"As our business grows, we will be expanding our team in the areas of business development, sales and marketing and field services," Campbell says. "There is a high level of talent in the area to recruit from."
Voalté Inc is located on Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota.
