AUBURN, WA – February 17, 2017 – Blood Bank Computer Systems, Inc. (BBCS) today announced that they have secured a new ABO Suite™ contract with Houchin Community Blood Bank (HCBB). HCBB will be implementing the newest versions of ABO Suite products, including ABO Express 2.0. They plan to kick off implementation in early February 2017 with the assistance of the BBCS Implementation Support Team.

“It’s a pleasure to continue working with Houchin Community Blood Bank as they support the needs of their local community. Our Implementation Team is eager to partner with the Houchin team to ensure a timely and successful upgrade to ABO Suite,” says Brian Forbis, Vice President of BBCS.

“[BBCS] has been willing to help us make adjustments to the software in order to adapt to our needs for easy implementation of a procedure without comprising the integrity of the overall program. They have always been customer sensitive and cordial to work with, making for a strong relationship. I would highly recommend BBCS to anyone looking for a software company,” says Greg Gallion, CEO of HCBB.

HCBB is also looking forward to having a more efficient donor registration process. By having a fully integrated BECS, registering donors will be much more streamlined for both mobile collections as well as collections taken inside the blood center. This new technology will take their blood center to the next level while saving them time and money.
