Verklizan BV (www.verklizan.org) is a Dutch ICT company founded in 1983. During the 1990s, Verklizan developed UMO, a universal platform for monitoring personal emergency alarms. For Verklizan, this development meant entry into a rapidly changing market. Through the sharp rise of the ageing population, Verklizan saw possibilities to further develop UMO into a multi-functional care unit, offering a wide range of care services to people at home. Throughout this development, Verklizan have retained independence and UMO has remained a universal platform.
It soon became apparent that there existed an equally large opportunity for a care centre concept with a universal platform beyond the Netherlands. In 2000 Verklizan started its research into foreign markets, which resulted in the opening of a German branch in 2003, a Spanish branch in 2006 and a UK branch in 2007. Nowadays, Verklizan supports UMO activities across nine countries.
Cooperation with a wide range of International partners in the field of homecare, security, telecare and telemedicine creates the necessary ingredients for renewal of healthcare in Europe by applying ICT. This involves using all available means of communication, such as analogue, digital, mobile and IP communication.
During the coming years, Verklizan will focus on efficiency and innovation to improve the environment of independent living, helping to raise quality of life and making healthcare expenditure manageable and more effective.
