Medical device manufacturers face a large challenge when it comes to having complete visibility of their inventory. Trunk stock, in particular, poses many risks because these medical devices are costly and tracking them manually can result in the loss of products. Not to mention, sales reps who are transporting them are in charge of managing their own stock, which leads to less time to focus on sales and the needs of their customers.
This burden of trying to juggle tracking inventory and optimizing the supply chain, while also trying to maintain good working relationships with hospital staff is one that needs to be re-evaluated. On top of all of this, field reps need to ensure product integrity. Many inventory items require controlled temperatures or have compliance requirements, thus putting even more pressure on sales reps and medical device manufacturers.
Medical device manufacturers want to successfully implement a trunk stock fleet, but with so many risks, it often leaves them wondering if these risks outweigh the rewards. These concerns are alleviated with our RAIN RFID devices and software solutions for field inventory management. Gain full-visibility and maintain product integrity with our RFID mobile devices. Our mobile devices allow field inventory reps to track while they’re on the go, giving them the ability to focus on building strong relationships with hospital staff and automatically optimizing the supply chain. Tracking hundreds of products as they move in and out of hospital spaces is made easy and lets the rep have the product the hospital needs in an instant.
How does it work? Through RAIN RFID devices and software. For example, with Terso Solutions RFID Mobile Case, the sales rep would stock the RFID Mobile Case with products needed in the field and when an item is removed, the RFID Mobile Case will send that information to an inventory management software. You will know which sales rep used what product, and where. Sales reps can say goodbye to manually tracking everything on their own and medical device manufacturers can be rest assured that products will be secure and accounted for.
Our RAIN RFID products allow you to:
- Increase revenue
- Automate cycle counting
- Capture all transactions at point of use
- Simplify rep to rep transfers
- Identify actual product location
- Find ‘lost’ items
- Ensure product integrity with temperature monitoring
How does Terso help me make the switch to RFID?
While offer a large variety of RAIN RFID devices, the best devices for tracking inventory in the field are our RFID mobile devices. These powerful devices can map product locations and track field inventory in real-time.
Software is a critical component for any of our RFID devices. Data is transmitted through our open-API platform, Jetstream, and then sent to your inventory management system. Every step is secure because all data is encrypted, ensuring that you have total control of who sees inventory information.
We do a lot, we know. Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the amazing technology we’ve perfected and the process we use to implement it, but don’t worry, we’ve laid it out for you. Take a deeper dive on the benefits of RAIN RFID and what you should expect when you work with us.
