JAOtech opens European Sales Headquarters


Medical Smart Terminal specialist JAOtech has announced the opening of its European sales Headquarters in the Netherlands, and the appointment of Bart Dolsma as European Sales Director with a brief to expand the company’s already substantial footprint in Europe.

Commenting, Warren Kressinger-Dunn, CEO of JAOtech said, “Bart Dolsma is an energetic sales professional with the vision and ability to build JAOtech’s European operation. Hospitals throughout the continent are alive to the real return on investment achievable through the installation of a well-resourced network of patient terminals. These returns are delivered through improved staff efficiency by offering convenient access to patient records at the bedside, as well as reducing carer calls by offering patients a varied and compelling package of multimedia entertainment during the entire period of their stay.”

Bart Dolsma added, “JAOtech has developed an exceptionally strong product offering that addresses the needs of a demanding and fast-growing market, and is continuing to develop and extend that offering in line with its vision for the business. I am excited at the opportunity to join an entrepreneurial and successful business with a leadership position in an emerging market with exceptional growth potential.”

JAOtech currently has an installed base of 15,000 terminals in Europe, through approved technology partners and direct contracts with European hospitals. It has opened TechnicalSupport Centres in the UK, France, and the Netherlands to provide local service support. Dolma’s role will be to expand the company’s sales and support resources in Europe to ensure that both its partners and direct customers continue to receive the outstanding service and support that they expect as the business expands. He will operate from JAOtech’s office in Heemskerk, the Netherlands.

Bart Dolsma joins JAOtech from Sky Technologies, a European display distribution business that he helped form in 2006. Prior to this he worked as Northern Europe Sales Director for Trident Displays for six years, and as a Director at Nijkerk Display Systems for nineteen years.
