After coordinating the inventory, billing, and sales operations for over 5 million implant surgeries – we learned quite a few things.

Movemedical learned that:

  • Medical device companies need better tools.
  • Medical device companies need better data.
  • Medical device companies who have better tools and better data can make better decisions.
  • There is no such thing as ‘asset optimization’ without proper planning, visibility, and control in place first. (no short cuts, no easy way out, no one size fits all)

When medical device companies learn those lessons, and then apply correct changes, the impact is huge.

The results are tremendous.

These are the 4 things that every medical device executive wants:

  1. Sales Force Effectiveness
  2. Field Inventory Effectiveness
  3. Kit Management & Visibility
  4. Analytics / Reports

When medical device companies get a handle on those four areas, they can optimize inventory, create stronger relationships and make better decisions.

In each of these main categories, there are tasks/functions that need to be done. Some of them cannot be done without Movemedical, others could be done but it would take multiple systems and multiple people and lots of manual effort. Don’t settle for second best.

Movemedical helps to unify your field operations by allowing you to do everything you need to do, in one easy to use application.

These are the areas that have the biggest impact for the medical device field inventory:

Kit Management

Analytics / Reports

  • Turn Ratios (Kits, Loaners, Consignment)
  • Cost-To-Serve

What they don’t want… Medical device executives don’t want to limit their ability to serve, they don’t want to stop progress, they don’t want to waste time with IT problems, they don’t want to waste time trying unproven solutions, they don’t want to try and build something from scratch, they don’t want to hurt their sales reps productivity. They don’t want to do things the old way, they want a new and efficient solution that helps them and their teams be more effective.
