StayLinked Continues European Growth with hiring of Guido Grefen as Technical Account Manager, EMEA

We are excited once again to announce further expansion in our presence in Europe with the hiring of Guido Grefen as Technical Account Manager. Guido is not new to the StayLinked approach. In fact, he was responsible for designing, implementing, and supporting the very first StayLinked installations in Europe while at Rodata, a value-added reseller specializing in AutoID. While at Rodata, Guido maintained strong connections with StayLinked for an extensive period of time, working with StayLinked and Psion Teklogix while they were OEM partners.

StayLinked’s growth in EMEA comes in response to continued demand for StayLinked products in Europe, where companies are continuing to migrate from legacy Terminal Emulation to the reliability and security of the StayLinked architecture and SmartTE application modernization.

“I’m really excited to be expanding the team again here in EMEA“ said Padraig Regan, General Manager, EMEA for StayLinked. “I’m delighted that Guido is joining us. Our team is the best in the industry and Guido’s knowledge and experience in this space is well-known and respected and he will prove invaluable in increasing StayLinked's growth in the region.

Guido's responsibilities as Technical Account Manager include increasing StayLinked’s collaboration with channel partners, device manufacturers, and application providers. Guido will also play a vital role in client services, technical training, and customer project management.

“With the new Android devices in the market, the expectations of worker productivity in the warehouse will change. StayLinked addresses this issue beautifully.”

Guido is an experienced sales engineer that understands the complexities of software development, integration, migration and deployment for enterprise-level customers. Based in Germany, Guido has evolved as an expert in Information Technology and supply chain solutions, with extensive experience from the manufacturer perspective and from the channel solutions perspective. 

“Years ago, I actually implemented the first European StayLinked installations," Guido says. "I was very happy when Padraig called and me asked me to join the growing European team. For me, this is very exciting to work for such an innovative company. With the new Android devices in the market, the expectations of worker productivity in the warehouse will change. StayLinked addresses this issue beautifully. Due to the architecture and the structure of our software, I will be able to incredibly increase the speed, efficiency and the user experience of the workers, without change of their well known application.“


The StayLinked Fair Licensing Policy

If you're running Terminal Emulation using one of our competitors' approaches, odds are you're paying for licenses that are not in use. It's that simple. Unfortunately, with device-side licensing, the devices that aren't being used (devices sitting in cradles, devices that aren't working, device in lockers and drawers, and devices that are being repaired) are all unnecessarily using licenses you've paid for. This can be an added and invisible expense that many customers may not be aware of.

With StayLinked, license are only required by devices in use. Because of StayLinked's unique centralized architecture, licensing is handled only when devices connect through the central server. This ensures you pay for the licenses you use, and not your entire inventory of mobile devices.

And with StayLinked iQ you can manage your permanent and temporary licenses in an easy-to-use interface that gives you visibility into usage patterns, so you can see what's going on. From there, optimization is a snap. Other systems simply can't do that.

Superior Single-Server Architecture

StayLinked's fully-integrated architecture uses a single server to handle your business processes: TE application clients, session persistence, modernized screen design, fair licensing, and business intelligence. 

Everything you need for TE in your warehouse can be done with one StayLinked server. That means that installation is easy (less than 10 minutes) and maintenance is minimal. With StayLinked, upkeep is easy and inexpensive, and because it's tightly-integrated, administration is simple.

Other approaches, however, require multiple servers to accomplish a lot less than what the StayLinked solution offers. This means more headaches during the installation process and ongoing support for troubleshooting multiple servers that may not even be in the same location.
