Futura Rebrands to Offer Managed Mobility Platform, Names New Chief
Healthcare managed services provider wants to offer full range of technology solutions to booming mobile market.
Futura Healthcare Technology, a provider of mobility managed services, said that it has changed its name to Futura Mobility LLC to better reflect its strategy to capitalize on the rapidly expanding enterprise mobility market, and has tapped David Gulian, formerly InfoLogix’s chief executive, to its top spot.
The MSP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Futura Services Inc., has operated under its former name for about two years, providing point-of-care technology products, support and services to some 1,800 hospitals in the U.S. The 20-year old parent company has been in the healthcare industry for more than 10 years.
Janet DeNicola, Futura chairperson, said that the name change and new strategy map to a market shift towards mobile devices in the enterprise.
“By offering our own unique Mobile Managed Services Platform, including device design and deployment, asset management and support, Futura Mobility will serve as complete mobility partner to our clients,” said DeNicola.
She said that Futura’s executive management team will remain intact, including Cosmo DeNicola, chief sales and marketing officer (CSMO), Dominic Sambucci, chief operations officer (COO), Mark Handzlik, chief technology officer (CTO), and Gerald Francesco, senior director, support services.
To support its new business plan, Futura has allocated funding to beef up its national sales team, develop new mobile applications and expand its Fort Washington, PA headquarters, Horsham, PA technology center and data centers in Philadelphia and Las Vegas, NV.
“As we roll out our expanded strategy, Futura Mobility is poised to take advantage of current market conditions while offering significant cost savings and efficiencies for clients,” said Gulian.
Futura said that it is pursuing investment opportunities from a number of financial institutions for mobile technology and sales and marketing resources and has set up strategic partnerships with Mobiquity Inc., a provider of enterprise-class mobile solutions and OneCall Manage Inc., a supplier of mobility plan cost management.
