We are excited to announce further expansion in our presence in Europe with the hiring of Christian Blunschi as Technical Account Manager. Christian has more than 20 years experience in Information Technology and supply chain software solutions, most recently at Lenovo assisting enterprise-level customers with client deployments. Prior to his stint with Lenovo, Christian was the 2014 Global Sales Engineer of the Year at Wavelink.

StayLinked’s continued growth comes in response to rapidly increasing 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.

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

"We are very excited to expand our European presence," said Padraig Regan, StayLinked General Manager, Europe. "And we are fortunate to add Christian to the European team. His experience with Terminal Emulation solutions is well-known and respected in the industry and will prove invaluable in increasing StayLinked’s growth in the region."

Blunschi is an experienced sales engineer that understands the complexities of software development, integration, migration and deployment for enterprise-level customers. Now based in Zurich, Switzerland, Blunschi has also worked in Asia and Oceania playing an integral role in the development and implementation of new products for major retailers.

“This is a crucial time for the industry,” Blunschi said. “With new operating systems and new device form factors rolling out, successful migration to these devices is critical, and StayLinked is at the forefront of enabling these changes. I’m excited to be part of a growing team that's leading the effort to solve the challenges in enterprise mobility today.”

SmartTE: The Only TE Modernization That Works Out-of-the Box!

StayLinked SmartTE with the Smart Keyboard ensures you can apply touchscreen capabilities to your warehouse applications right out of the box. You may have seen some approaches to Terminal Emulation that claim to modernize the backend application on your device with ease. But if you talk to anyone who has actually tried these software approaches, you’ll often hear the same refrain: It doesn’t work. At StayLinked, the folks we’ve talked to who are actively looking for an alternative are amazed at not only how well SmartTE works, but how easy it is to use. And with Smart Keyboard, StayLinked is once again leading the way to true out-of-the-box TE modernization.

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.
