The SoloHealth Station, the free health assessments and information kiosk, will now have its own checkups provided by NCR. The NCR services group has signed a three-year agreement with SoloHealth to provide on-site repair services after the units are installed, expected to be in more than 2,500 retail locations by mid-2013.
The agreement covers service of thousands of SoloHealth Stations, which will be deployed in mass merchant, drug and grocery retailers across the country, the announcement said.
The SoloHealth Station offers a variety of health screenings, including vision, blood pressure, weight, symptoms checking, body mass index and an overall health assessment. The kiosk also provides and connects users with a database of local doctors, according to the announcment.
"With health care such a vital and hot topic, NCR is very excited to be working with SoloHealth to make an easy-to-use health monitoring and assessment solution available to thousands of Americans and keep these thousands of innovative devices up and running for retailers looking to drive store traffic and build shopper loyalty," Vice President of NCR Retail Sales Bill Barton said.
"We are focused on selecting the most strategic, strongest and reliable partners for our SoloHealth Station kiosks and NCR fits the bill perfectly," said Eric Hoell, SVP of operations and product development at SoloHealth. "Our partnership with NCR will ensure our kiosks will be functioning at an optimal performance level for our retail partners and the thousands of consumers interacting with them."
