Cloud-based solution streamlines labor-intensive inventory management tasks to improve resource management
“Today’s laboratories are faced with the need to increase efficiency while simultaneously improving quality and turnaround time,” said Erik Johnson, vice president and general manager of workflow and informatics, Beckman Coulter. “With DxONE Inventory Manager, we bring laboratories a solution that gives them back a critical resource—time. For many laboratories, managing supplies involves repetitive, time-consuming and often manual tasks. DxONE Inventory Manager eliminates the administrative aspects of supply management by automating the recording, tracking, ordering and monitoring of consumables. This reduces workload burden, minimizes waste and ensures stock is available when needed for uninterrupted operations.”
Cloud technology enables personnel to view real-time supply levels on demand and remotely from a single dashboard to better track consumables across a laboratory network. With DxONE Inventory Manager, users can manage the entire inventory process in three easy steps: click a button to accept orders, deplete an item to update supply status automatically and confirm a system-generated reorder. The fast, easy-to-use system gives technologists the ability to track each product by name, lot number and location, and alerts staff to low supplies. Alerts are also available to ensure consumables are used on a first-in, first-out basis, helping laboratories avoid unnecessary waste for greater cost efficiency.
The improved operational efficiencies made possible by DxONE Inventory Manager through resource optimization, cost reduction and streamlining of inventory management tasks are an outgrowth of Beckman Coulter’s investment into its DxONE portfolio—a combination of tools designed to produce actionable data to support decision making.
