And it can do a lot more besides. All device management applications have inventory & work management, spare part stock control, contract management, MHRA medical device alerts, equipment libraries etc. (although with some of our competitors there may be additional charges for some of these), but do they also handle:
Naturally both are included in the same licence price – there are no added extras.

Medical Device Managers in the UK operate within a framework of regulation and inspection designed to improve patient safety. The publication Managing Medical Devices (MHRA April 2015) identifies the following responsibilities for Device Managers:
Implementing these policies will not only improve patient safety, but the financial benefits are significant. This document also states “Good record-keeping is essential for the safe management of medical devices… The records should be maintained within one system wherever possible.” The e-Quip family of software tools is the only integrated system which meets these requirements.
e-Quip is the newest medical device asset-management software to be released in the UK. There is no other system available which offers the ease-of-use, combined with power and flexibility of e-Quip. The design of the system is based on 20 years experience working with some of the largest Medical Physics and EBME departments in the UK, listening to their requirements and taking into account their problems with existing systems.
These features alone make e-Quip an attractive choice for Medical Device Managers, but when combined with our unique pricing strategy, e-Quip becomes the only choice.
Best-in-class software tools do not have to be prohibitively expensive. In the past, medical device asset-management software has been massively over-priced. The reason for this is that suppliers are trying to recoup their development costs in as short a time as possible, and this means a high purchase price. Also, because the suppliers perceive that large hospitals are prepared to spend more, software is often sold with a limit on the number of concurrent users; the more users you need, the more you pay.
To us, this has never seemed logical – surely it costs the same to develop the software regardless of how many people in a hospital use it? This pricing policy is based purely on profit and runs completely counter to the customer’s requirements.
Our strategy is different. We are proud of our software and want you to use it as much as possible. We would prefer it if hundreds of people used e-Quip, not just Medical Physics or EBME. e-Quip does not have a purchase price! You don’t buy the software (in fact, you can’t buy the software). All we sell is an annual “right-to-use” licence – once you have purchase this you can use the software for 12 months, with as many users as you choose. There are absolutely no other costs.
Prepare to be astonished (in the right way!) when you see the power and features of e-Quip, and then look at the price tag – then give us a call!
