BLACK+DECKER Selects Orckestra’s Innovative Platform to Power the Online Experience of Pria, a New Automated Personal Medication Assistant

PRESS RELEASE

Orckestra Technologies Inc., an omnichannel solutions leader and subsidiary of Mediagrif Interactive Technologies Inc. (TSX: MDF), is proud to announce that BLACK+DECKER has selected Orckestra’s API-first platform to build the unique new commerce experience of Pria, BLACK+DECKER’s newest automated home healthcare assistant device.

PriaTM by BLACK+DECKER is a device that empowers caregivers to support and monitor one or more persons’ medication and healthcare schedule, without interrupting their independent lifestyle. The Pria device dispenses medication, ensuring the right medication is provided to the right person at the right time, and provides connection and visibility between caregivers and their patients or loved ones through interactive technology.

BLACK+DECKER is leveraging Orckestra’s API-first platform to create compelling online content and experiences, and to enable a new subscription-based commerce capability that integrates various enterprise platforms to deliver BLACK+DECKER’s first subscription business. 

“Pria is solving an important problem by providing better care and medication management at scale. Creating the right content and commerce experience for Pria and enabling new IoT commerce initiatives in the future requires a flexible API-first commerce platform like the Orckestra Commerce Cloud. We’re very excited to be working with Stanley Healthcare and BLACK+DECKER on such an important initiative,” said Louis Fournier, President of Orckestra Technologies Inc.
