Metova Releases Speech Therapy App

Last week two Little Rock firms announced the release of DocNow, an iPad application designed to assist therapists.

According to a news release, the app was designed by Metova Mobile of Cabot and is being sold by Ntegral Applications of Little Rock. It was unveiled officially in late June at the Arkansas Association of Special Education Administrators conference in Eureka Springs.

It was designed mainly to help speech, occupational and physical therapists in educational facilities keep track of students and save time on paperwork.

“By offering a way to complete the required documentation during or immediately after a therapy session, DocNow can save therapists hours of weekly administrative work,” Kevin Tyler, chief technology officer of Ntegral Applications, said in the release.

John Adams, CEO of Metova, told Arkansas Business that the app will be released Aug. 15 and will initially be available only for the iPad.

He said the app will have a high-end price tag, but it will vary depending on the size and type of the institution using it. Incidentally, Metova’s Arkansas location started last year when it was acquired by Adams’ company, A4 Solutions, which took on the Metova name.

Adams said in September he was planning to expand the company from about 60 employees to between 100 and 150. At the time it had about 15 in Arkansas. Now, he said, the company has about 90, with 25 of them in Arkansas.
