Hospital Patient Labels: Consolidating Expense Through a Single Supplier
It isn’t uncommon for hospitals to receive new product shipments on most days of the week. Part of the reason why shipments are delivered at such a torrid pace is because hospitals receive many different products from multiple suppliers. However, when it comes to hospital labels, hospitals can receive everything they need from a single source: Shamrock Labels.
Getting your patient labels from us can help you consolidate expenses in four key business areas: invoice management, vendor management, shipment processing, and shipping expense. Below, we offer a brief overview of each area to explain the opportunities to cut costs.
- Consolidated Invoice Management
Most hospitals have a document review process for invoices that ensures the correctness of charges and identifies opportunities for refunds. The more invoices your hospital receives, the longer the process takes, and the more manpower must be used to complete the process.
Ordering all of your hospital labels from a single source allows you to dedicate less manpower to invoice management and increase productivity by dedicating the additional manpower that was once used for the process to other financial management tasks. When the process requires less manpower, it ultimately requires less money.
- Consolidated Vendor Management
Overseeing vendor relations is an inevitable part of running an effective supply chain for essential hospital products. As with managing invoices, the more vendors your hospital has, the more vendor relationships it must manage, and the more manpower it must use to manage them.
Letting us supply your hospital labels can allows one person to manage the account, while other employees focus on other business functions. As mentioned above, when a management process requires less manpower, it ultimately involves less expense.
- Consolidate Shipment Processing
Having your hospital’s patient labels arrive in as few shipment packages as possible helps its receiving department process shipments faster and thus perform more work in a given period of time. If your hospital is looking for ways to decrease operating costs while increasing productivity, receiving your hospital labels from a single source is one way to do it. Because we supply labels in bulk, we are an ideal option for consolidated shipping.
- Consolidated Shipping Expense
Because the weight of freight partially determines shipping expense, consolidating as much freight as possible into a single freight container can help lower shipping cost long-term. Because less packaging materials are used to contain products, freight inevitably weighs less, and thus reduces the amount you pay to have hospital labels shipped month after month, year after year.
