Wisconsin 911 Calls Centers and Dispatch Could Get Upgrades
The state of Wisconsin is considering a $6.7 million upgrade for every 911 call center. The upgrades will focus on IT. We hope they consider an upgrade of their 24-7 chairs as well. Keynamics has been providing 24-7 chairs for 911 call and dispatch centers of over 10 years – it’s our specialty.
A chair can do more to improve a dispatcher’s efficiency and comfort than any other office tool. Bodybilt chairs have been proven to provide more comfort that just about any other chair, while our 24-7 Intensive use line will last for many years.
Bodybilt chairs are custom made to order with many options to fit various end user height and weight ranges. We usually sell a fairly standard model to 911 Call centers for 24/7 use.
It’s the Intensive Use “Core” line, with a high double rub tested upholstery wipeable fabric and comes with a headrest for users weighing up to 300 pounds. That chair is in the $1400 (retail) price range plus shipping. (see government discounts below).
The Crew and Captain series add more expensive upholstery, with the Captain being leather and it’s very expensive. The Core series comes with Staccato and is the most durable of the all, and the least expensive.
Each line comes in regular size (up to 300 pounds users) and large (up to 500 pound users)
Typically, 911 call centers need some combination of regular and the “Big and Tall” series – warranted up to 500 pounds. The Big and Tall series comes with a more substantial base mechanism and wider seat pan and adds about $150 to the chair.
Most 911 call and dispatch centers are affiliated with the local government – there are government contract pricing discounts direct from the factory available bringing the chairs down to around $1,000 for the 300# “Core” model and – $1,150 for the 500# “Core” model.
Seat depth is easily changed between shifts with the seat slider bar, located at the front of the seat pan. For special needs, an array of optional features is offered to address almost every seated task from the office to industrial settings.
These BodyBilt chairs are not only proven to be the most comfortable on the market – they are built to military standards – as the military is one of the largest purchasers of these chairs.
The best part of the BodyBilt line is that all parts are forward and backward compatible – allowing you to replace parts as needed down the road – most chair manufactures design obsolescence into the chairs so you have to buy a new one every couple of years.
