Aloe Care Named Health and Wellness Product of the Year

We get a lot of compliments — and of course, they’re always welcome. But our favorite comes from older adults and the people in their circle of care. Nothing makes our hardworking Product team happier than to hear, “Aloe Care is so easy to use!”

Of course, ease is our aim. But it’s especially rewarding when fellow technologists see the behind-the-scenes complexities and power of our system beneath that elegant user interface.

Today’s award illuminates that perspective beautifully.

Aloe Care has just been named Health & Wellness Product of the Year by the IoT Breakthrough awards. Thousands entered, and previous winners have included such respected companies as Cisco, Sonos, Qualcomm, General Electric, Fitbit and Lenovo. Needless to say, this win felt great. Having an elite crew recognize the technological heavy lifting the Aloe Care system does, while the people who rely on our system to stay safe, connected, and informed find us easy to use? It’s huge.

It takes a world-class team of right-motivated, hard-working people to create a product worthy of such acclaim. I assure you, it’s a joy to work among them.
