Swisslog Announces Limited-Time Price Promotion for New Whisper Receiving System

Share Article

Quantity discounts available until December 31 for patent-pending technology.

This price promotion gives our customers an affordable way to reduce noise in patient-sensitive areas and improve the patient experience.

Swisslog, a leading provider of automated materials transport and medication management solutions for hospitals, today announced that customers of its TransLogic Pneumatic Tube System (PTS) can receive a discount of up to 15 percent off the list price of the company’s new Whisper Receiving System.

The Whisper Receiving System is a product that responds to market demands by significantly reducing the noise that occurs when a carrier arrives at a PTS station.

The list price of the Whisper Receiving System is $340 per unit. Until December 31, customers who purchase between 10 and 24 Whisper systems will receive a 10 percent discount and customers who purchase 25 or more Whisper systems will receive a 15 percent discount. The cost for installation, if performed by Swisslog, is additional.

Available now as an upgrade to existing stations, the Whisper Receiving System can be quickly retrofitted to any 6-inch TransLogic PTS station by a Swisslog service technician for a fee or it can be installed by hospital maintenance personnel.

Comprised of a re-engineered, energy-absorbing carrier receiving ramp and a replaceable landing cushion that fits securely into the existing receiving bin of a PTS station, the Whisper Receiving System provides three distinct benefits:

1. The noise associated with a carrier landing in the receiving bin has been significantly reduced, allowing PTS stations to be located in noise-sensitive areas;

2. Carriers now land softer, resulting in improved protection for highly sensitive items (blood products, medications, lab specimens, etc.) that are transported in a PTS;

3. The cushion is removable for easy cleaning, resulting in less PTS downtime if a spill occurs.

“All of our more than 2,000 hospital customers in North America have PTS stations in areas where noise disrupts the patient experience,” said Charlie Kegley, president of Swisslog Healthcare Solutions North America. “This price promotion gives our customers an affordable way to reduce noise in patient-sensitive areas, such as the ICU or nursing stations, and improve the patient experience.”
