Exceed efficiency demands with timely precision.
As the healthcare industry continues a rapid evolution, executives overwhelmingly agree that improving the effectiveness of the supply chain can reduce overall costs, increase revenue and lead to better quality of care. But these goals can’t materialize unless distribution operations can deliver high levels of precision and velocity, ensuring that the right products, equipment, devices and supplies will be on hand as needed. When health and lives are in the balance, there’s no time for correcting shorts and errors.
In addition, healthcare organizations need access to real-time data about product demand and supply chain conditions from diverse sources. With more sophisticated ways to analyze and manage data, they can transform the supply chain into a strategic business asset – one that generates greater brand loyalty by exceeding efficiency and accuracy requirements across a broad spectrum of functions.
Deliver superior service levels with Voxware® VMS.
Use proven voice capabilities to drive more efficient fulfillment and inventory management.
- Near-perfect accuracy. Easily achieve 99.9+% picking accuracy while employing multi-modal technologies (including RFID) to efficiently process lengthy lot numbers. Improve selector velocity in a variety of tasks: receive, move, put away, pick, pack, pick and pass, and load, plus cycle counting/stock taking, replenishment.
- Excellent supplement to Warehouse Management System (WMS). Voxware VMS, whether deployed in the cloud or on your IT system, can bridge deficiencies in your WMS, so you can benefit from optimized picking paths, generate more precise matches on cycle counts and better manage inventory without deploying a new WMS.
- Agile fulfillment. Reduce overall operating costs by collapsing the time between the order and delivery. For example, aggregating voice prompts and responses can help you meet demands for same-day shipping (versus weekly replenishment) to various hospital floors, reducing inventory costs and waste due to product expirations.
- Improved visibility. Voxware dashboards give distribution managers real-time views of what's happening in the picking line. This enables supervisors to assign priority jobs to a particular employee to ensure they're completed on time.
- Support for customers' business models. Employ omnichannel fulfillment, including timely deliveries to hospitals, healthcare providers, retailers and direct to consumers.
Drive real-time supply chain decisions with Intellestra®.
Give managers and supervisors a real-time view of data from diverse supply chain sources.
- Single platform insights. Easily see labor allocations, transportation data, shipping manifests, proofs of delivery and more, all in one place. Even public data such as real-time traffic reports, weather and news feeds can be integrated and analyzed.
- Continuous warehouse monitoring. Decision makers at all levels can access and benefit from data never before available. Example: predict late orders and deliveries before they are obvious, while there's still time to react to and prevent the problem.
- Descriptive analytics. By analyzing supply chain events, you can learn exactly what occurred, such as costly outages and overages, and why they happened so you can avert future problems or make timely improvements.
- Streamlined predictive modeling. Use analytics to help determine future fulfillment requirements and make business decisions accordingly. Employ predictive modeling to anticipate particular demand based on previous seasonal orders, such as increases for certain products during flu outbreaks. Automate instrument and supplies reorders based on a hospital's upcoming schedule of patient procedures.
- Greatly improved traceability. Limit patient and corporate risk and financial consequences in the event of product recalls or regulatory concerns.
