MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Transcend® is changing the playing field for medical equipment retailers looking for a competitive advantage and a way to build business with cash sales. In 2010 more than 150,000 CPAPs were purchased for cash by consumers, representing 10 percent of sales for all CPAPs sold in the U.S.
That’s a significant amount of revenue for medical equipment retailers and a hassle-free way to build incremental business according to Clarence Johnson, CEO and president of Somnetics International, Inc., makers of Transcend. “As reimbursement declines and competitive bidding increases, retailers are jumping on board the cash sales bandwagon with Transcend and generating cash sales. Transcend provides the world’s smallest, lightest and most portable CPAP for consumers and a turnkey solution that makes it easy for retailers to sell Transcend for cash. This delivers a significant competitive edge over retailers who haven’t figured this out yet.”
Transcend is the world’s smallest, lightest, most portable CPAP in the world and, according to many retailers who carry it, offers consumers a much needed option for portable and reliable sleep apnea therapy.
Greg Koch, manager of the Park Nicollet Sleep Store in Minneapolis has carried Transcend CPAP products and accessories since early 2012 and is pleased with the results for both consumers and for building business. “Transcend enables us to offer our customers a portable and convenient option that is easy to use anywhere. Consumers are very satisfied with Transcend and the benefits it offers and we appreciate that it enables us to deliver a portable and affordable CPAP solution for our consumers.”
