As blood-testing laboratories expand their business into more hospitals, clinics, physician groups and distributors the management of medical supplies can turn into a real challenge.
Our clients report that the main reason that they contract with Pel Hughes to fulfill these critical blood draw items is that the time and internal resources needed to manage these inventories at a world class level is no longer effective. They want and need to focus their time on the laboratory business and get out of the warehousing and shipping business.
Laboratories really appreciate the ease of keeping their blood draw locations supplied with the right supplies at the right time. We also create the ability to manage all of their users and distribution points from the online web portal that we build and manage for them.
They take advantage of the 35,000 square feet of dedicated warehouse space as well as climate controlled storage to outsource other hard to handle equipment such as blood draw chairs, printers and supplies and even centrifuges!
Packaging, forms, hand assembly of kits, marketing communication, and FedEx automated programming and logistics all under one roof has also improved their service level to their customers. All orders placed by 2:00 PM CST ship same-day because our processes are able to scale to meet each lab’s needs. Now they don’t have to pay internal people and are able to ship higher package volume using a dedicated third party team of specialists.
