A recent article in Becker's Hospital Review outlined the ongoing issues hospitals face with their supply chains. It is no secret that most hospitals struggle to reduce costs in their supply chains and often use an inaccurate and outdated process to complete their inventory counts.
As with many organizations, the resistance to change has been in place for years if not decades. But Erin Marshall of Becker’s lists some strategies a supply chain manager or a CFO can use to build their case for using an inventory management solution:
1. Show how the current state isn't working
2. Articulate your vision
3. Communicate the benefits
4. Gather your allies
5. Identify your savings opportunity
