FloKi Health, has expanded its project team from eight to 18 over the past 12 months as it sets sights on growth beyond its Newcastle base.
The North East firm, which was founded in 2017 by CEO Fenwick Smith, has invested in further experience across technical development, sales and marketing to boost its offering.
Amongst the new members of the team is Nick Bramley, who joins the startup as business development director. With over 30 years of experience in sales, performance excellence and customer development, Nick will oversee new business strategy and outreach.
Commenting on his position, Nick said: “I am delighted to be joining such a dynamic business with a genuine passion to deliver improvements and value to the NHS.
“I hope to engage and inspire a wide range of NHS professionals, by showcasing the advantages that FloKi Health can bring to patient care through deployment of our smart technology solutions.”
The increase in project headcount is the latest announcement from FloKi, which also revealed the development of its existing Bluetooth beacon technology last month.
Expanding on its existing product, medical professionals can now use FloKi’s solution to track and locate loan equipment in the local community, as well as within hospital walls.
Set up by Fenwick Smith following his own experience as a patient of the NHS, FloKi has grown from an initial idea to save the NHS time and money, to a technology solution that can be implemented to support improvements and operational efficiencies.
Fenwick Smith, CEO of FloKi, said: “This year has been a pivotal moment for FloKi Health and there has been a step change to ensure we have a solid solution that will really make a difference to the NHS.
“The impact of coronavirus has also helped in shaping our solution so that hospitals can save time on the location of equipment, ensuring nurses can spend more time with patients.
“The expansion of our team has not only meant that we can develop our platform and beacon technology, but that we can also expand beyond the North East and into hospitals across the UK.”
