Z5 Inventory Platform
Developed based on decades of experience in the healthcare supply chain space, the Z5 Inventory Platform was built to help you create an end to end view of your hospital inventory. The platform helps you streamline the process of taking physical inventories, develop insightful analytics to help you identify savings opportunities, and suggest the best methods for realizing those savings.
Mobile Data Collection
Z5 utilizes modern smart device technology rather than the traditionally limited methods like paper or handhelds. Counters utilize easy to handle Apple mobile device technology giving them digital count sheets and a window into their entire item master and purchase history. The devices traditionally communicate with your data via the internet connection in the hospital. Devices can also be used offline in areas where the Wi-Fi is unavailable.
Instant Data Aggregation
As the counts are completed, Z5 gives you the option of viewing and running a large number of analytics as soon the data hits the server. You can immediately begin resolving "write-ins" and incorrect packing strings and seeing year over year variances. In addition, the inventory progress is viewable and the valuation is calculated. Extensive pre-built reports are available for you to exports to Excel as well as the ability to build custom reports.
Advanced Savings Analytics
Z5 uses advanced proprietary algorithms against the collected data to provide suggestions on potential savings opportunities in your facilities and how to Reallocate product to achieve those savings.
There is nothing for you to install. All of your data is stored in a secure environment hosted on AWS (Amazon Web Services). This environment allows you to access all of your data and result from any web browser. With this approach, we are able to keep the process relatively IT-free meaning there are no need for expensive or complex system integrations. You can be up and running in as little as day if a rush job is required.
In addition, the easy-to-use app requires very little training. Most hospital staff can be trained on the basics in less than 30 minutes as most are already very familiar with searching items on their mobile device. We can even import your current count sheets into the application to make things easier.
Z5 prides itself in providing reliable and dependable technology. Along with providing a more accurate solution than paper counts sheets, we use a triple redundancy system that saves your data in three locations before you even hit the "save" button yourself.
