Frost & Sullivan Company Of The Year Award In Medical Grade PCs Presented To Advantech

LONDON, Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the medical grade PCs market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Advantech Co., Ltd. with the prestigious 2012 European Company of the Year Award.

"Advantech has outshined its competitors over the last 5 years in the European market through prudent distribution channel optimisation, continuous product portfolio expansion and competitive product pricing," noted Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Somsainathan. "The company maintains high quality standards for its products, meeting all the European standards including EN-60601, and is still able to competitively price its products, mainly due to its efficient in-house manufacturing facility (ISO-13485) in Taiwan."

Motivated by people-based technologies that put patient safety and comfort at the forefront, Advantech's revolutionary medical grade PCs enable patient-centric technologies that deliver more convenient and digitally-enhanced healthcare services. Advantech's medical grade PCs can be efficiently used in a diverse range of medical applications including data acquisition, vital signs monitoring devices, patient data management systems (PDMS) and visualisation (x-ray, endoscopy).

"They help in bringing electronic medical records (EMR), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and computerised physician order entry (CPOE) to the point-of-care," added Somsainathan.  "They also comply with prevailing medical technology standards, such as UL60601-1 and EN60601-1, thereby ensuring safety and reliability." 

Many medical institutions in Europe and around the world have benefited from Advantech's medical grade PCs. These robust and instantaneous information solutions ensure precise clinical decision-making.  In essence, these solutions, as exemplified by the company's flagship POC-S197, effectively upgrade the quality of care and safety, and the overall satisfaction derived from medical treatment.

Advantech has also achieved a high degree of customer appreciation, mainly due to the implementation of a timely support platform. Its six call centers / sales offices in Europe effectively respond to client queries on varied issues ranging from the technical to shipping.

"Advantech offers several unique services to its customers, including online stores - 'Advantech eStore' and 'MyAdvantech' - that provide a one-stop solution for all devices and accessories," explained Somsainathan. "Interactive self-service options add customer value by helping clients access technical documents, 3-dimensional product models, online training modules and catalogues."
