Service & Support
Committing to a new monitoring system is a major decision. Ensure that your supplier will be able to support you in the future and that they will still be able to supply you spares and replacements.
This is a crucial step in determining the success or failure of your monitoring project. Selecting the correct product is essential and identifying the potential issues that will need do be dealt with is paramount. For example what is the price and availability of replacement sensors? Many monitors today have lots of seemingly attractive built in features e.g. temperature. However, do you really want to use your operating theatre pulse Oximeter to measure temperature in your ITU kennel?
Since our inception, we decided on the philosophy that it was far better to understand fully a limited range of products than to have a limited knowledge of many. This is why we specialise in monitors and monitoring and why we can answer sometimes difficult, clinical problems in a professional manner.
We are proud of the close working relationship we have with the Veterinary Colleges and some of the top people in their fields which enables us to learn and use the knowledge gained to help our other clients.
It is the responsibility of our staff to convert all of the work undertaken in the pre-sales phase into a fully supported and working system. Whether you work in a large or small animal practise or specialise in exotics, our trained and dedicated team are there to support you and your patients.
We offer expert on site training* on all of the monitors we supply and remember, we manufacture most of them! We believe that the patient comes first, to which end, when we train people in the use of our monitors we train "hands on", in the field with real patients.
This allows us to give a level of training unmatched in our industry, as well as giving us a unique insight into any problem areas or difficulties faced daily by our customers. This enables us to rectify a situation and solve problems to make our customers lives easier and enable them to deliver the level of care to their patients that we all aspire to.
When we talk of empathy, you can rest assured that we've been there ourselves personally at some point.

We hold stocks of all spare parts and can effect board level repairs, which means that no matter what the problem is, we can keep your monitor fully operational.
