JPI has been in the diagnostic imaging industry for decades. If you’ve worked with JPI over the years, you have come to expect the added values we offer our customers and end users. One of these added values we provide is the inclusion of certain functions and features in our software as a standard, instead of an additional charge like many of our competitors. For example, including image stitching as part of our ExamVue DR acquisition software. There’s a lot more added value available when you decide to partner with JPI.
As far as Digital Radiography (DR) hardware is concerned, flat panel detectors are the standard for digital x-ray today. The costs of implementing a DR system using panels can extend far beyond the actual cost of the panel itself. This is one of the solid reasons we consider the JPI 5-5-5 Coverage Program to provide unrivaled value. If you’re not familiar with this amazing coverage program, 5-5-5 means that we provide 5 years of drop coverage, 5 years of remote software support, and a 5-year panel warranty at nearly zero cost to those who purchase a flat panel detector through JPI.
So how much added value does the 5-5-5 Coverage Program provide? Let’s take a look.
5 Years of Drop Coverage
Flat panel detector suppliers may charge $2,000-$3,000 per year or roughly $10,000-$15,000 for drop coverage over 5 years plus a deductible of $5000 or more if the panel is damaged and replaced. Even if you don’t damage and replace the panel, you would still end up paying roughly $10,000-$15,000 over 5 years. JPI does not charge an annual premium for drop coverage. If you do end up needing to replace your panel completely, it will cost you only a fraction of the panel’s cost. If you do not damage the panel, there is $0 out of pocket cost for drop coverage over 5 years with JPI. If you do in fact damage and need to replace the panel once or even twice over the years, you would still have saved thousands of dollars.
5 Years of Software Support
Other suppliers charge $1,500 per year or more for software support, while JPI does not charge an annual premium for software support. $1,500 per year over 5 years is $7,500 in added value working with JPI.
5-Year Panel Warranty
With JPI, our 5-year panel warranty comes at a cost of $0 for 5 years. With other suppliers, the annual cost of a panel warranty may be $1,000 per year or more. So, this could cost panel purchasers about $4,000-$5,000 over the 5-year period.
JPI’s 5-5-5 Coverage Program could save a panel purchaser approximately $15,000-$27,000 over 5 years of ownership.
