Apex, NC (PressExposure) April 17, 2008 -- WiSpots has selected tyBitÂ® Unified Search, as the exclusive search engine for its WiPad devices that allow patients in medical office waiting rooms to connect to the Internet for free, even if they donât have their own wireless device. Several physician practices already offer WiPads, and WiSpots will be rolling out this new interactive media/Internet access solution that uses the tyBit search engine throughout North Carolina and the United States over the next 18 months.
Revolutionizing Waiting Rooms
Most people spend a minimum of 30 minutes in a doctorâs waiting room before receiving medical services. With the WiSpots WiPad, they can connect to the Internet to read informative content regarding their visit to the doctor or check e-mail while away from their office.
âThere were over 68,000 hotspots worldwide as of mid-2005,â stated WiSpots CEO Kevin Flannery. âAt this time only a small percentage of the general public is able to utilize these hotspot locations because patrons must provide their own laptop computers or PDAs. Thatâs not an issue at our client locations since we provide the WiPads for their patients to use on site.â
The partnership between WiSpots and tyBitÂ® allows patients to search the Internet with tyBitÂ® Unified Search for online magazines, news and social networks such as tyVille. Patients can also use WiPads to join existing social network groups, such as cancer support groups, on tyVille, and communicate with other people throughout the United States who share the same medical concerns.
Patients concerned about germs and the cleanliness of hard-copy magazines in waiting rooms will appreciate the WiPad, which uses technology that provides a virtual âpage turningâ experience for many publications. Magazines are read on the WiPad screen, and pages are turned with the touch of a button. Additionally, WiSpots has enabled each of their WiPads to be disinfected with antibacterial supplies provided on each WiSpots interaction center, ensuring a healthy environment for any doctorâs office.
Free WiFi Supported by Ads
WiFi access is provided for free to patients since the service is primarily supported by advertising. WiSpots provides value to doctorâs offices by boosting patient satisfaction and turning any waiting room into a potential source of revenue. As part of WiSpotsâ revenue-sharing program, the practice can receive a percentage of the ad revenue under certain conditions.
For advertisers, WiSpots provide access to the most captive environment of consumers worldwide. Unobtrusive advertising space is available in three different formats. Companies searching to get their message out to the community can leverage WiSpots and tyBitÂ® to get âface timeâ with millions of consumers and an opportunity converse with them, not just at them.
