Brazilian healthcare group AxisMed has signed a partnership deal with local communications platform integrator company A5 solutions, the former said in a release.

The deal is part of a move by AxisMed to modernize its servers and streamline its telecommunications and contact center infrastructure.

"With this infrastructure, we now have what is necessary for the operation of our contact center. The business intelligence and expertise in healthcare management remain with AxisMed, but the process technicalities are now with A5 Solutions," AxisMed IT director Eduardo Santana said.


A total of 42% of employees on average spent more than an hour a day in worktime doing online holiday shopping, a survey from US software provider Ipswitch's network management division found.

From the companies surveyed by Ipswitch, 28.3% did not know how long their employees engaged in Christmas shopping online. Those companies that did follow such internal activity, on the other hand, found that 42% of their staff dedicated more than one hour a day to holiday shopping online, influencing the company's business productivity and profits.

"Online shopping is no longer done only after work, and many employees may take more than two hours during the working day doing this kind of shopping," Ipswitch's network management Ennio Carboni said. According to Carboni, in addition to a loss in productivity, online shopping can also generate additional traffic to the IT infrastructure of the companies, harming other operations.
