Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
Swisslog, a leading provider of automated materials transport and medication management solutions for hospitals, today announced that it has been awarded an agreement from Amerinet, Inc., for its pneumatic tube system and autonomous mobile robot.
Headquartered in St. Louis, Amerinet is a leading national healthcare solutions organization.
The 36-month agreement is available now to Amerinet-member organizations. The agreement provides Amerinet members pre-negotiated pricing for Swisslog’s TransLogic pneumatic tube system and additions, as well as Swisslog’s RoboCourier™ autonomous mobile robot.
The TransLogic pneumatic tube system features many patent-pending technological innovations that meet the evolving needs of hospitals. These include carrier tracking, improved ease of use, quiet delivery, and content security. Laboratory, pharmacy, nursing and other hospital departments benefit from the reliable, rapid delivery of time-sensitive patient-specific payloads.
RoboCourier dramatically reduces manual transport tasks within hospitals, particularly labs where specimen turnaround time is essential. The robot can be installed easily with no facility modification, is equipped with laser guidance for obstacle avoidance, and can navigate narrow hallways.
“Our agreement with Amerinet will provide its members with important benefits related to our pneumatic tube system and autonomous mobile robot,” said Bob Rasmussen, executive vice president of Swisslog Healthcare Solutions North America. “These materials transport solutions provide outstanding reliability and a rapid return-on-investment by reducing manual transport chores and returning hospital staff to patient-relevant tasks.”
