Austin, Texas (PressExposure) August 05, 2011 -- SecureCare Technologies, Inc. (SecureCare) has today been shortlisted in the Technology category of the Greater Austin Business Awards organized by the Austin Chamber of Commerce. The company was recognised primarily for its flagship product Sfax - a secure, cloud-based faxing service that eliminates manual faxing; and additionally for the introduction of Scrypt - its innovative new solution for securely scanning and archiving medical records.
To be shortlisted, SecureCare had to explain how its technology represented a new and creative approach to solving an issue. The company drew upon its experience within healthcare to show how Sfax allows access to documents 'anytime, anywhere' via desktop, web, integrated through API and mobile. It also demonstrated how its security measures and audit trail go beyond the standard approach to exceed compliance requirements for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Graham-Leach-Bliley (GLBA).
SecureCare also had to provide details of what measurable benefits it had provided to customers: the company demonstrated that it saves a typical physician over $1,500/month compared to the same client using a manual faxing service.
Aleks Szymanski, CEO, SecureCare said: "Austin is one of the hottest places for technology in the world right now, so we are thrilled to be shortlisted in this category at such prestigious awards.
"I am extremely proud of the business we've built and believe, somewhat ironically, that our success is borne out of understanding the need and the people, rather than simply the technology. We apply this user-centered thinking to build products from the ground up with three over-riding goals - top-notch security, premium quality and superior performance. I passionately believe we've achieved these goals with Sfax and Scrypt."
The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on August 31, 2011.
