Driving Last-Mile Medical Device Supply Chain Visibility

The lack of supply chain visibility and asset traceability is one of the biggest problems medical device companies face today, especially in the last-mile as it relates to field inventory.

No Visibility.

In addition to wasted time, money, and assets, incomplete field inventory visibility causes all sorts of other issues and unintended consequences.

Due the lack of true visibility, field inventory management (consignment, rep stock, loaner) is incredibly complex. Most companies need 3-4 different tools just to get the job done—and even then, it is much more manual than it should be.

Without visibility, everything is reactionary: There cannot be advanced proactive optimization since just getting the work done takes all the resources. Outdated processes often can’t be updated due to lack of modern software and proper change management.

Driving Value.

Everyone promises results. Most have yet to deliver.

Customized, but not purpose-built tools (like a CRM) have never (at least not yet) driven the desired results. ERP’s can’t manage the intensive back-and-forth transactional and reverse logistics nature of the business. These tools help, but they do not have the automation, user adoption, or even basic inventory functionality to drive to meaningful transformation.

Disparate tools and manual processes each struggle with their own varying levels of performance, limited capability, and poor interconnectivity. Together, they constantly introduce errors, inefficiencies, and increased operational costs.

These are the exact circumstances which gave birth to Movemedical.
