The story of Vontra
After the death of my niece at the hands of a terrorist bomb in 1988, my life changed in ways I didn't even fully realize until many years later. I started my career as a police officer nearly three decades ago… and when cell phones and mobile devices became popular, I started to see just how limited emergency communications technology was when it came to locating them. Eventually, I decided to combine my law enforcement background and computer programming skills to create 911Cellular, a company dedicated to providing the highest quality technology and support with emergency communications software.
Since then, the healthcare industry has been in dire need of effective solutions to reduce the widespread violence carried out by patients against employees. This devastating challenge is substantially far reaching, and the utilization of a single piece of technology is in no way capable of eliminating the issue altogether. The solution must be comprehensive and cohesive.
Vontra, powered by 911Cellular technology, was created to become that comprehensive solution. I have personally overseen this panic button technology as it is carefully engineered and implemented at various hospital systems nationwide. It gives me great pride in knowing there is significant data highlighting the reduction of response times at these locations since mass deployment of our solutions. It is my personal goal that Vontra's panic button solutions assist hospital systems everywhere as they continue to save lives while mitigating substantial financial risk factors.
