The organisation integrates its own full-time critical care doctors, air crews, dedicated medical helicopters and jets to reduce response times, significantly improving patient outcomes.

The Challenge

LifeFlight needed an asset-centric inventory control system to manage everything from medical consumables and medical devices, through to the buildings and aircraft that hold them.

“Loc8 provides transparency to multidisciplinary teams at multiple locations, enables efficient collaboration. Implementation is swift and professionally guided by Loc8 Project managers. Highly recommended”

Brendan Turgiev, Equipment & Logistics Controller, LifeFlight Group Qld.

The Result
