RALEIGH — K4Connect continues to expand its platform, inking another partnership with Raleigh data firm Allbridge to bring “seamless digital experiences to thousands of senior living communities across the nation.”
Allbridge offers in-room technology solutions for hospitality, senior living and healthcare facilities, serving more than one million rooms nationally. Under the agreement, it will deliver K4Connect’s flagship solution, built upon its patented operating system, FusionOS, an advanced multi-modal edge-cloud architecture. According to the company, it’s the only of its kind in the senior living industry.
Allbridge customers will also have access to K4Community Team Hub, the comprehensive community management tool for staff teams.
“Together with K4Connect, we are able to reach senior living communities with dynamic digital solutions that empower residents and transform the work day for staff teams,” said Craig Snelgrove, EVP of sales for Allbridge, in a statement. “Combining the K4Community senior living resident and staff solutions alongside our industry-leading data network, video, and voice products, makes for a seamless package of enterprise digital solutions these communities need now,”
added K4Connect Vice President of Business Development, Ian Sanders: “This is a powerhouse partnership. Joining our K4Community solutions with Allbridge’s network expertise ensures the highest quality digital experiences for the senior living communities we serve. We are now able to reach even more communities with these technologies with the added value of their established success in the hospitality and senior living markets. We’re excited to introduce Allbridge as our first official channel and infrastructure partner, and honored to work with such a talented team of experienced digital innovators.”
In June, K4Connect teamed up with software communications firm Bandwidth to deliver a newly enhanced “hotline” for its staff and residents.
A month later, it raised an additional $7.7 million led by the Silicon Valley-based Forte Ventures to officially close its Series B round with $21 million in its coffers and brings total outside venture funding to date to $31 million.
Founded in 2013, the Raleigh-based startup has become one of the fastest-growing companies in the Triangle. It currently serves tens of thousands of residents at over 800 continuing care, independent living communities across the nation.
