NCR Corp., SoloHealth sign three-year health kiosk maintenance contract
DULUTH, Ga. — NCR Corp. is partnering with health kiosk maker SoloHealth to service interactive consumer healthcare kiosks at retailers as SoloHealth rolls them out around the country, the two companies said Tuesday.
NCR's services group has signed a three-year contract with SoloHealth to provide on-site repairs after the units are installed in what the companies expect to be more than 2,500 retail locations by the middle of 2013.
The stations, which provide screenings for vision, blood pressure, weight, symptoms checking, body mass index and overall health, will be installed in mass merchandise, drug and grocery stores, including Walmart and Sam's Club.
"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," NCR VP retail sales Bill Barton said.
