This contract is an example of the flexibility of Sectra’s new licensing model, which is based upon utilization and allows for unlimited growth within the health system. This includes the ability to expand outside of radiology.
    Anthony Grise, Vice President of Sales at Sectra, Inc
    A quantum-safe solution is crucial for our customers to keep them secure from any possible attack today or in the future. Given the extensive time horizon of 30-40 years for keeping highly sensitive information and national secrets secure, protection against quantum threats is highly relevant for security solutions that are developed today.
    Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra Communications
    The support people and the people who work with us have all been great. We have had a good relationship with everyone in our local area, the US corporate team, and those who have worked with us from Sweden. Sectra has a good culture.

    Dr. Darren Treanor, NPIC’s director, and a practicing pathologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
    Digital pathology is about far more than replacing microscopes with computers. It’s about fundamentally changing how pathology services can be configured across regions and across the country, so that patients can receive faster diagnoses, services can become more intelligent, and the NHS can make best use of its valuable pathologists. NPIC is at the forefront of this transformation.
    Jane Rendall, UK Managing Director for Sectra
    Pathology trainees from across Australasia take several sets of exams throughout their five years of training. Now, during the ongoing pandemic, these exams are being conducted remotely instead of on campus in Sydney. Regardless of where the exams take place, we need a solid, robust and secure solution that we can rely on during this important and stressful time for trainees. Sectra’s solution is also intuitive and easy to use, requiring minimal training. We feel very confident that our new exam process using Sectra’s solution will better prepare our pathology trainees for their future careers.
    RCPA President, Doctor Michael Dray
    Sectra is committed to making our solutions rock-solid and easy to use, since this is critical in the clinical environment.
