“Making this switch has resulted in huge cost savings for us. We’re no longer paying to bring the service provider on site. We’re not being charged mileage to drag a huge trailer between our facilities, and I’m only paying for one technician who helps administer testing.

They knew there had to be a better way.
Mercy Hospital in Lebanon, Missouri is a 78-bed acute care medical facility. They offer a full range of services including Occupational Hearing Conservation programs for a number of local industries.
Case Farms implemented SHOEBOX Audiometry to help them administer the occupational hearing conservation program at both their main plant and two off-site production facilities. They chose SHOEBOX for four key reasons: ease of use, improved workflow efficiencies, portability, and cost efficiency.
