Ridgefield, CT (PRWEB) May 17, 2010
CoActiv (http://www.coactiv.com), the leading digital image management company, announces a partnership with XRI®, the specialized medical equipment sales and service organization, for the distribution of the complete CoActiv product line, including the EXAM-PACS® family of web-based PACS solutions for every imaging modality and medical specialty, its three EXAM-RIS® offerings and its vendor-neutral, EXAM-VAULT® QUAD-REDUNDANT ARCHIVING® services.
The new agreement is part of CoActiv's dramatic expansion plans, following its most successful year ever in 2009 with sales more than double that of the previous year.
"We selected XRI® following careful review of vendors in this geographic area because of its reputation for a high level of knowledge about medical imaging digital technology as well as commitment to service and support," said Ed Heere, president and CEO of CoActiv. "XRI® represents one of a growing list of resellers and distributors that CoActiv has recently partnered with to cater to the growing need in today's marketplace for a cost-effective, advanced, feature-rich PACS. In addition, we have significantly expanded our sales force during the past year."
Under the new agreement, XRI® will be responsible for sales, service and support for CoActiv products throughout the New England region, complementing CoActiv's own in-house sales force. XRI®'s existing regional customer base includes hospitals, radiology centers, orthopedic facilities, cardiology departments, urgent care centers, chiropractic offices, veterinary facilities and more.
"We made a decision to partner with CoActiv because the company shares the same commitment to technological innovation and customer service that has always been our hallmark," said Frank Rubino, Vice President, XRI® STATServicesSM Division. "We believe their products are extremely well positioned in the current marketplace because they can immediately save many sites money over the costs of film-based imaging. Many imaging sites that are not yet digital are finding that they can convert to the latest technology and save money compared to ongoing film processing costs. CoActiv's product line is a win-win proposition for all involved."
In the forefront of technological innovation, CoActiv has long supported imaging across the enterprise with specialized applications for imaging beyond radiology as well as web based functionality beyond the enterprise. It broke new ground with its specialized functionalities, such as support for radiation therapy images and information and gamma breast imaging. Recently, CoActiv was the first PACS vendor to announce integration with the Apple iPhone and iPad for both its radiology and orthopedic applications. Additionally, it recently debuted a new feature that enables users to connect with the EXAM-PACS while flying using an iPhone across the airline's WiFi connection.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome XRI® as part of the CoActiv team. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with the company and are amazed that they have already closed several sales during the first few weeks," said Heere.
