Savvy dispensers have the capability of stocking their shelves with stock that they now know will fill a full ninety percent of the patients needs presented to the average practice, providing the means to demonstrate the benefits of better hearing at any technology level in less than thirty minutes to any consumer who’d like to listen.
The Unitron Flex units are like having the proverbial Swiss Army knife on my shelf. Each unit has just the right tools available for whatever job my patient’s needs, lifestyle, and budget present. With Flex, we achieve that goal, without having to stock dozens of different models. Yet we get the potential to go from the entry level program load of their Essential line, all the way to their Pro, complete with their incredible “Speech Zone” beamforming technologies that make the voice I want to hear, just seem to float above the background noises.
By listening to our patients and using Flex, we now have a tool that can be custom loaded with the level of programming sophistication best suited to our patient’s needs, lifestyles and budgets.
By separating the hardware from the software, and allowing for the sale of just the right load for each patient, Unitron stakes an indisputable claim to industry leadership. Putting control of product potential into the hands of those best suited to make those determinations, the professionals, and patients on the spot, at the time.
Unitron Flex makes it possible to begin unlocking the administrative, cost, and time saving capabilities so long promised by open platform hearing aids, yet undelivered by all but this leading edge, US based and managed subsidiary of Sonova.
While only being released on a limited basis, to select dispensers for the next six months , Rod Schutt, President, and CEO plans to use the limited release, as a way to debug their program prior to unlimited release, scheduled for next Spring. By doing so they will minimize the tracking and accounting difficulties uncovered in their Sona launch, allowing further refinement of the program prior to mass release.
When coupled with their RIC line, Unitron allows me to have the toughest, most weather resistant, easily serviced, and best sounding gear in the industry, on my shelves and available for whatever need presents.
Using their onboard In Situ Audiometry suite, I can take a patient’s needs and inquiry through to a demonstration of benefits in thirty minutes or less.
By demonstrating the benefits of each level of technology, rather than just talking about it with my patients, allows me to demonstrate the different levels of programing technologies available without changing the gear, just the program load.
My patients appreciate the differences immediately, or not, as their needs, loss, lifestyle and budget dictate how we proceed. We can make program load changes instantly, without changing anything but the applications.
Flex saves our patients, and us hours of time, money and the anxiety of ordering something, and wondering if it will do what it’s intended and expected to do.
I know how my patients and I have hated the wait times for conventional, or custom products, and how much second guessing and anxiety, waiting to demonstrate value and benefits can cause.
Unitron Flex allows my patients to find out instantly, whether the recommendations I make will work for them, without multiple trips, gear, or headaches. And their Flex trial units let me do it for anyone who walks in.
Thanks Unitron, for putting such flexibility, durability and serviceability into a such a tiny package that, is as tough as woodpecker lips, looks great, doesn’t mind getting wet, and is as simple to use as putting the battery in, and putting it on. We will be sure to have a few sets of this tool on my shelves at all times.
Just like their Pro line, Unitron’s Flex line, is very well named, an incredibly flexible tool for the busy practitioners tool box, and an incredible hearing aid for any consumer who cares to take a listen.
Flex instantly demonstrates real, value at every price point, for consumer and practitioner alike.
