Vivago develops smart safety and wellbeing solutions for preventive care. The innovative solutions cover the whole chain of care from home care to assisted living, care homes, hospitals and rehabilitation. Vivago solutions increase the feeling of safety with automatic alarms and by providing wide range of wellbeing information to support daily care and to follow-up the effectiveness of care. Real-time notifications inform about changes in the person’s wellbeing and it enables care providers to react proactively and focus on individual care.
As a long-term R&D partner, SSF has been involved in the development of the Vivago system. SSF’s development team has responsibility of the software development of Vivago care products. SSF offers necessary resources for different development phases. The size and competence of SSF’s development team are optimised dynamically to meet project day-to-day needs. SSF ensures that Vivago has every day a sufficient team with required skills. According to project phases, a team is furnished with system engineering, SW design, testing and verification professionals. To avoid useless idling after the project task is accomplished, the team is reduced again until the next project is realised.
SSF has invested dedicated work premises and necessary development environment and devices for the team. A tight co-operation and communication between Vivago’s own R&D team is crucial for long-term success. This is ensured by continuous interaction, steady personal relations, and with complete high-quality documentation.
For Vivago, the co-operation has enabled flexible resourcing and required experts in various stages of the project. A long-term R&D partnership makes it possible to work more efficiently and to react quickly to changing needs.
“Vivago solutions provide safety and wellbeing monitoring for tens of thousands of end-users in Europe. It is essential that product safety and quality are ensured. For us a long term partnership with SSF, has assured the effectiveness and quality of product development. The partnership also means flexibility of the development resourcing and access to highly qualified expert knowledge.”
