It also eliminated their device rental fees and the inconvenience of carrying around an extra device.  More importantly, with OnPage, the sender is always kept informed on status of the message, thereby enhancing accountability.

“With OnPage, our hospital and its call center have received highest level of reliability. I have not had  one issue with operators sending messages, or physicians and other staff receiving them. OnPage gives us the same features that we depended on with our traditional pagers, but does so much more. OnPage adds functionality to the pager with its delivery confirmation notifications, security with its SSL encryptions, and all at a price that is the same as a traditional pager, minus the expensive monthly fee.”
