Easy access to historical data—Stores seven years of data and provides quick, convenient access to information needed for audits without complex archiving processes.

Choice of architecture—Available in physical or virtual platforms (VMware certified).

Remote access—OmniCenter Remote Access (OCRA) allows access from any PC connected to the hospital’s network, giving great flexibility to users.

Robust technology—Hospital server uses Windows 2012 operating system; automated dispensing cabinets employ Windows® 7 operating system and Intel® Core™ multiprocessor technology.
