DCS EDI Consultants Ensures Success

Your business is unique because the very highest quality medical product standards must be met. These high standards apply to business processes and are subject to regulation and scrutiny. Yet, customers’ requirements affect your processes. This means you must adapt your time tested processes while ensuring the cost of each process is minimized. Practically, this means process automation, so that the limited customer service staff has ample time to focus upon problems. For example, if you drop-ship to hospitals or clinics, the correct addresses (to the correct station) must be easily importable and tied to the correct bill-to distributor.

Improved process automation can be achieved by fine-tuning your existing EDI and ERP systems, especially the swift alerting of exception messages. Other unique challenges are:

  • Lot tracing – sending the lot number to customers on the invoice.
  • Expiration management – receiving accurate inventory reports.
  • Contract administration with non-profit buying groups and government agencies.
