Managing supplies is critical to your bottom line, but how can you manage something you cannot see? Having a clear line of sight to product utilization data at the point of care is critical to drive operational efficiency.
Find out how:
• Transparency downstream from point of manufacturer helps drive waste out of the supply chain, drive patient safety, while maintaining service levels
• Understanding “true” utilization can help with better demand planning

2:20 PM - 2:40 PM Case Study | Addressing the Cold Chain Conundrum, Lessons Learned and New Discoveries

Cold chain approaches are always costly, and frequently wasteful. All too often there is an excess of packaging, the methods aren’t always environmentally friendly and customers might not be happy. Three and a half years ago, one company decided to scrap 14 year old technology for newer, more eco-friendly options and chase freight savings. While the team set out to address one problem, they found themselves introducing new variables and new problems. Hear the surprising results and lessons learned, including:
• The complexity of introducing new technology
• How to manage a new reverse logistics model
• The ultimate economic benefit, was it worth it?


Reducing inventory and freeing up capital is fairly simple at the outset, but how do you move passed the low hanging fruit? How do you keep inventory low while keeping the level of order to delivery high? How do you get inventory closer to just in time?
Panelists will discuss:
• How to find 10% reductions year over year
• How to carry low amounts of inventory while maintaining service levels to the customer
• Proven successes to improve cash health to reinvest in other opportunities
