Pathcare, one of the largest Pathology practices in South Africa have for years entrusted Olympus with all their Dictation requirements. The working relationship between Maynards Office Technology (Official importer and distributor of Olympus Voice Recording products in S.A) and Pathcare goes back over 15 years and in that time Pathcare have continually made use of the “top of the line” Olympus Dictation Devices, DS-3000, DS-4000, DS-5000 and now moving onto the new DS-7000.
The origin of the Pathcare group of practices can be traced all the way back to 1922, coincidentally this is the same year Maynards Office Technology was founded at our current location on the corner of Loop and Shortmarket Streets in Cape Town. Over the past 90 years Maynards have endeavored to offer the best possible business solutions and service to all our clients and this is certainly a case in point with Pathcare, highlighted by our long, ongoing working relationship with them.
Olympus have always had a close connection to the Medical Industry, going back many years especially in the microscope industry. The history of Olympus Voice Recorders is slightly shorter but since the advent of commercial Digital Voice Recorders Olympus have continually produced extremely high quality market leading products for Medical Practitioners and the industry in general. As stated above, Pathcare make use of the Olympus range of professional “dictation” devices, entrusting these devices to capture all the reports from their Histology Department. Once the recordings have been made they make use of the user friendly Olympus DSS Player Pro / ODMS Software to conveniently and safely transfer the files via FTP to their central typing pool to be typed up. This system has worked extremely well over many years and allows Pathcare to make use of our Olympus recorders throughout South Africa and surrounding countries while maintaining the backbone of their system (the typing pool) at their Cape Town head office. This highlights the diversity of the Olympus system, which is able to integrate into pretty much any current IT infrastructure.
As Maynards Office Technology and Pathcare move forward as businesses into the future we look forward to continuing to build on the already strong business relationship we have forged over the past 15 or more years and we are confident as a brand Olympus will continue to offer the perfect solutions for all and any Dictation requirements Pathcare may have in the future.
