Breaking Ground in UK’s Healthcare Industry with Toshiba TCxFlightTM

With Partner CRT, Toshiba UK Enters the Health Care Market as the First to Offer the NHS Touchscreen Capabilities with TCxFlightTM

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--()--Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, a global leader in point of sale technology, is breaking into the UK’s healthcare industry with TCxFlightTM, the first hybrid mobile solution to be offered to the National Health Service (NHS) as a touch screen patient experience tool. This is in partnership with CRT, a Toshiba UK Channel Sales Partner who specifically sought out Toshiba as a leading hardware provider for their powerful real-time health survey software, and is the first research specialist to offer this type of technology to the NHS.

CRT’s survey software ViewPoint will work in conjunction with TCxFlightTM, whose lightweight design includes anti-fingerprint, anti-glare coating, and hygienic beveled edges. Its unique dock-and-lock and release-and-go functionality allows TCxFlightTM to travel with general practitioners as a robust, mobile tablet and affords a longer lifespan than personal tablets.

"The TCxFlightTM leverages Toshiba’s POS expertise for a dynamic mobile solution that healthcare providers can be confident will work in any environment,” said Andrew Carr, UKI Country Leader, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. “The TCxFlightTM mobile solution will further CRT’s customer experience feedback capabilities to better serve NHS patients.”

With the simple touch of a button, the TCxFlightTM mobile solution can function as a traditional docking station or in a variety of mobile use case scenarios. This versatility allows care providers to efficiently process patient experience surveys, empowering research experts like CRT to provide the patient feedback the NHS depends on through dynamic and responsive technology.

“The development of our real-time survey software is continuous, and it’s vital that we stay ahead of the game with the latest hardware too,” commented Simon Rowland, CEO, CRT. “Our collaboration with Toshiba enables us to offer our customers something new and different.”
