Integra‘s surgical kits are used in more than 500 critical, life-saving surgeries each week. Timely delivery of Integra’s kits is absolutely crucial. The kits are sent to sales reps, and after a doctor schedules a surgery, a sales rep delivers the kit to the hospital. The doctor uses the parts she needs and the kit is returned to the distribution center for replenishment. Tracking both the used and unused parts of each kit throughout every step of this process creates plenty of uncertainty.
Following Gaea’s EBS implementation, Integra was able to successfully reduce the number of shipments by 30% for certain sales reps and dealers. Fifteen systems were replaced with one, a 93% reduction, and label templates previously totaling more than 10,000, were reduced to 20 for a 99.8% reduction in templates. Missing inventory and number of shipments were each reduced by 10%. To learn how Gaea helped Integra achieve this ROI, download the full case study
