Consensus Orthopedics Selects WebOps Logistics for Field Inventory Management

WebOps Logistics to provide visibility of surgery schedules,

consignment inventory tracking, and implant traceability

 

 

ATLANTA, GA (April 12, 2012) — WebOps, the leading medical device logistics innovator, announced today that Consensus Orthopedics, the El Dorado Hills, California manufacturer of leading knee and hip implant devices, has selected WebOps Logistics as the inventory management and collaborative workflow platform for their field sales and support teams.

 

Based on extensive research, Consensus chose WebOps Logistics as a key technology component for their broader initiative to make optimum use of the working capital committed to inventory and instruments. In an industry where 95% of the products delivered to the operating room for a surgery won’t be used, WebOps allows manufacturers to rapidly redeploy the unused items to the next case, dramatically increasing the number of surgeries covered by the same level of inventory.

 

Consensus’ Vice President of Operations, Paul Rugg, said, “Inventory utilization is a question of speed. With WebOps, we know what items were implanted before the patient is even out of the operating room so we can immediately match the unused items with pending orders and identify the next logical case to cover with that inventory.”
