Sphere Medical develops and manufactures ground breaking patient monitoring equipment for the critical care environment. Its patented technology has the scope to improve outcomes among critically ill patients by giving clinicians an accurate picture of each patient’s status. As the company develops in the healthcare market it needed to ensure effective systems in place to support growth, efficiency and quality compliance. Ellen Irwin, Supply Chain Manager, describes how implementing Science Warehouse’s spend management solution has streamlined the purchasing process.
- Automating and consolidating purchasing.
- Quality compliance.
- Time consuming ordering processes.
- Lack of spend visibility.
It is estimated that ordering is now 50% faster since the introduction of the Science Warehouse solution. The electronic approval workflow also means users have full sight of their orders and digital authorisation means written signatures are no longer required. With increasingly dynamic working patterns, the 24/7 online availability means management and staff alike can login on the move and browse the catalogue or approve orders at their convenience.
The online nature of the solution also meant it was fast to implement with minimal training required for users. With direct support from the Science Warehouse Implementation Team the tools are now in place to ensure efficient data transfer to Sage, saving the time that used to be spent manually entering purchase order data onto the system.
Overall, the view at Sphere Medical is that the investment in the system has been essential part in supporting the business’s development to the next level.
