K4Community 2.1 is the company’s third major release of 2018, highlighting the value of an open platform. Advanced product integrations and new user enhancements including:
Create and Publish in a Single Application – Gone are the days of switching between various tools to create community assets (calendars, menus, flyers, etc.), duplicating data entry through multiple tools, or having out of sync information across all your content systems (web, print, digital tv, etc.).
With K4Community 2.1, community staff are able to create, print and digitally share community content and assets across multiple systems including digital signage, resident TV’s, print, smart phones, laptops and tablets using a single solution designed specifically for senior living.
This solution introduces the power of branded templates to speedup creation and improves consistency, and powerful scheduling technology which allows creators to ‘set it and forget it.’ K4Community’s new Content Creation and Publishing tool introduces a whole new way of creating and publishing content: one that is fun, creative, flexible and collaborative.
Save Time With Automated Morning Check In – The latest version of K4Community allows senior living teams to automate the morning check in process, augmenting a timely, error prone, and manual process while providing increased independence for older adults in senior living communities. K4Community’s Automated Morning Check-in provides a passive morning check-in functionality leveraging smart home technology.
Smart Scales and Blood Pressure Cuffs Enhance Resident Wellness – Building on K4Community’s fitness and sleep tracking solutions, Version 2.1 expands the connected wellness capabilities to include smart blood pressure cuffs and smart scales. These new products along with existing solutions provide the industry’s most comprehensive, integrated connected wellness solution allowing residents to stay active while managing their health.
