As society trends toward more diverse forms of ownership and commerce, platform-based and subscription-style services have become increasingly common. Uber, Amazon, Netflix, and others have fundamentally changed the way many of us travel, shop, and plan entertainment for a night in. Now, the same streamlined approach has come to digital radiography (DR). Just like subscribing to a cellphone service, with a single monthly payment for your phone, data, and damage protection, DR users can subcribe to pay off their panel while having it covered for service, updates, and droppage.
Most of the panel buyers we talk with agree that these are great benefits, but the next questions they ask always seem to revolve around the length of the subscription period, the frequency of upgrade elligibility, and just how much of the subscription period they're really locked in for. To help clear up those questions, we'll use Block Imaging's subscription plan as an example and dig into what you can expect concerning the details of your DR panel subscription period.
