  • Software, support and labor costs are locked in over the term of the contract.
  • Manage technology evolution from your operational budget.

 

Predictable operations

Why choose RightFit Evolution

By keeping our monitors at the most current revision,
we can significantly extend the life of that equipment from a capital procurement perspective .”

 

— Dennis Minsent, Director, Clinical Technology Services, Oregon Health and Science University

The more advanced the technology gets, the more
the service contract needs to help us maintain that equipment .”

 

— Jane Kiah, Director, Invasive Services, Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute

Education and training

 

RightFit Service Agreements offer a great deal of choice in how, when and where you can take part in clinical and technical training courses. Many customers take advantage of economy of scale by using flex accounts. Customers can use these accounts to purchase a “block” of training/education hours as part of their maintenance contracts, to use as they see fit.
