Pitcher’s out-of-the-box offline inventory management module enables reps and distributors to link inventory movement directly to CRM opportunities. Customer information is automatically populated, including information about surgeons, cases, and hospital billing. Product lot information is captured via barcode scanning and automatically adjusts available inventory in the field. Signature capture is carried out directly on the device, allowing both reps and hospital personnel to confirm the order on the spot.
These activities, including order capturing, can be carried out offline and updated via background sync when connected.
A growing medical device company needed a solution for both its direct sales reps and distributors to manage inventory distributed through the sales teams. Reps provide consultative selling to spinal surgeons in surgical theater and the existing practice involved handwriting customer information on forms and collecting lot number stickers from product packaging in order to add specific lots to associated order forms.
The business needed to improve these main areas:
- Keeping inventory up to date
- Lot tracking
- Billing turnaround time
- Increasing time spent selling
- Company image
