NHSCat-accredited* PC manufacturer, Centerprise International , has appointed an NHSCat Account Manager, whose efforts will be solely focused on helping the health care sector implement the Government’s National Strategic Plan to deliver 21st Century IT support for the NHS. Ricky Harvey has eight years experience selling hardware to NHS establishments, including a two-year spell at ICL (now Fujitsu), giving him excellent knowledge in the deployment and use of information technology in health care environments.

As Ricky Harvey explains, “The Government’s high profile NHS Plan states that there should be a ratio of one PC for every two people in the NHS by 2004. If this is to be achieved, approximately 250,000 PCs will be sold into the sector in the next two years. My job is to ensure that Centerprise is a preferred and trusted supplier when these machines are purchased.”

Ricky will achieve this by concentrating on the key selling point that sets Centerprise apart from other PC manufacturers – the fact that every PC is built to order in its £3m purpose-built production facility in Basingstoke, Hampshire. This allows every machine to be specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of health care environments.

Ricky is already spearheading a number of exciting projects with Centerprise‘s Research and Development team, and is forming close relationships with partner companies, resulting in new products that will shortly be introduced to the NHSCat program. This includes technology that is perfect for use on a Hospital ward, including wearable wireless PCs and a ‘computer on a trolley’ whose design has evolved from equipment used in a Formula One pit lane.
