Cincinnatti, OH and Sheboygan, WI — In a move to improve service and support for life safety systems while driving down cost, Audit­Tel and PalatiumCare have announced a strategic alliance to deliver a streamlined purchasing and support system for the staff of senior living communities in the U.S. and Canada. The collaboration will focus on serving the senior living market, which includes independent living, assisted living, and skilled care communities.

According to the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) Staff Vacancy, Retention, and Turnover Survey released in January 2014, employee retention in the Assisted Living market is 72.8% across all job positions, with 4.0% of nursing jobs remaining unfilled. “Staff stability is important to providing quality care to residents,” the report states. In order to assist senior living staff members, Audit­Tel and PalatiumCare’s strategic alliance will create simplified processes for ordering new product, requesting remote assistance, coordinating onsite assistance, and quoting and installing new systems. Friendly, professional customer service representatives and an easy­to­use automated online system allow senior living administrators and other staff members to request the help they need in an efficient manner. “Our business has always focused on closing the gap between residents and caregivers, and so it’s a natural step that we partner with Audit­Tel to close the gap between our company and our customers,” said PalatiumCare President Steve Redeker.
