CHALFONT, PA ? July 12th, 2012 ? Venture 3 Systems, LLC, manufacturer of Telikin computers, today announced a partnership with ESCO Technologies, LLC of Liberty Township, OH. ESCO Technologies award-winning CareConnect brand is a leading communications solution to the large and growing senior housing industry. ESCO will offer both the new Telikin Touch and the Telikin Elite styles of personal computer with built-in software to residents at senior living communities across America.
The Census Bureau reports there are more than 46.5 million consumers over the age of 60, and the baby boomer generation, those now 44 to 62 years of age, constitute approximately 25% (76 Million) of the total USpopulation. By the end of this year, people age 50 and older in the United States will number 100 million people. Comparing data in 2005 and, again in 2008, a Pew Research Center study data showed that, while the Internet remains dominated by users under 32 years of age, the number of older users is quickly gaining ground.
Telikin is exactly what consumers need if looking for a simple, yet fully functional computer that allows them to enjoy the top functionality of PCs including video chat, photo sharing, email, word processing, games and social media, minus the viruses, pop-ups and complex applications, said Fred Allegrezza, CEO of Venture 3 Systems. Telikin is the first personal computer built from the ground up with an integrated set of applications that makes the end-user experience truly effortless. It also helps families stay connected and enhances the quality of life for millions of people.
Telikin has identified a unique niche in the personal computer space, by creating a specialized offering that we believe will improve the quality of life for seniors in the communities we serve. We think that seniors and their families will really appreciate having a Telikin computer to help them stay connected, explained Jerry Grove, President and CEO of ESCO Technologies. We are excited about this partnership and the benefits it will bring to the communities and residents we serve. We plan to offer each of our current senior living communities a free computer lab, with state-of-the-art Telikin computers, when they roll out our low-cost, high-speed Internet service to their residents. In addition, as an incentive to those Assisted Living, Independent Living, and CCRC communities not yet with CareConnect, we will offer a free Telikin Touch computer for each and every one of their residents, when the community chooses CareConnect as its lower-cost provider of telephone and Internet services "
