Phunware Inc (NASDAQ:PHUN) is partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (HPE) (NYSE:HPE) to help healthcare providers better engage their patients.

Under the tie-up, the company will offer HPE’s healthcare customers a digital front door on mobile by integrating Aruba Networks’ mobility solutions with Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) healthcare products and solutions.

Founded after parent Hewlett-Packard split in 2015, HPE offers a global, edge-to-cloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that includes both Aruba’s wireless solutions and the Meridian Platform.

Phunware, based in Austin, Texas, said its digital front door software and infrastructure is further integrated with Aruba Beacons to power indoor mapping, navigation and wayfinding, as well as blue-dot location and proximity-aware push notifications, alerts and messaging.

“We are thrilled to partner with a worldwide leader in enterprise mobility, all while expanding the reach and distribution of our digital front door solution with HPE’s global customer base,” Phunware CEO Alan Knitowski said in a statement on Wednesday. 

“By integrating Meridian location technology into our digital front door solution for healthcare, we expect to showcase the extensibility of our MaaS platform for Apple iOS and Google Android patient environments on mobile with real-time, one-to-one engagements, interactions and traceability, both indoors and outdoors.”

Phunware noted that its digital front door enables feature-rich mobile application solutions for healthcare providers so that they can better engage their patients while optimizing both operational and staff efficiencies, lowering costs and boosting revenue. 

It integrates with electronic health-record platforms with telehealth service providers, eliminating the pain of having to manage dozens of point solutions while simultaneously offering patients and their families a far more simplistic, cohesive and integrated healthcare experience. 

For location-based services, Phunware has integrated Aruba’s Meridian BluDot Software Development Kit to deliver seamless functionality with Aruba Beacons.
