We are excited to announce that industry veteran Ron Caines has agreed to join StayLinked as its Vice President of Channel Sales. Ron’s most recent role was as Vice President of Global Sales at AetherPal, a company specializing in remote support and interactive training for mobile devices. Prior to joining AetherPal, Ron was the Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at B2M Solutions, a UK company focused on the development of mobile device analytics.

Previously, Ron was the President of Worldwide Sales and Services for Psion Corporation, a company acquired by Motorola Solutions. (Motorola was acquired by Zebra in 2014). Ron originally joined Psion as the Vice President of Marketing and was subsequently promoted to the role of President of the Americas prior to his appointment to his global role in 2009.

An Experienced Voice in the Supply Chain Industry

Ron’s hiring comes in response to proven demand for StayLinked products around the world, as companies are increasingly migrating from legacy terminal emulation to the reliability and security of the StayLinked architecture.

"Ron Caines is an incredibly well-respected voice in this industry,” said Dan Hogan, President of StayLinked. "His invaluable experience collaborating with partners and customers to help identify business needs will be vital in increasing StayLinked’s growth around the globe."

Ron’s responsibilities as Vice President of Channel Sales will include managing and expanding StayLinked's presence on a global scale with particular focus on distributor and reseller relationships. His role will center on strengthening these strategic partnerships as StayLinked continues to bring advanced terminal emulation solutions and business intelligence products to market.

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, licenses 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.
