Ordering consumables can be complicated
The vast majority of items used in surgeries and practices consists of consumables, such as gloves, syringes, disinfectants or dressing materials. Nearly 90% of these articles will be regularly needed again and ordered multiple times per year. Each order of consumables requires a considerable amount of effort. This begs the question of which articles you need and in which amounts. Often you are left with no choice other than to simply guess how many you will need for a particular time period or to dig out old receipts. However, that always carries the risk of forgetting an item that may be needed at a given time.
How the Order Alarm Works
You would like to order practice supplies and already have a customer account.
The order alarm tracks all the articles in your order history that you have ordered at least two times. The respective order amount can vary.
Based on your needs in the past, the order alarm calculates how long you needed to use up an item and then provides a recommendation for when you may need it again. The goal is to ensure that you never run out of consumables.
Your required items will be listed by urgency. You may manually correct the order recommendation and, for example, adjust for changing situations in the practice or seasonal influences. With only one click, you can place the recommended items into your basket.
Your basket is now full. To complete the ordering process, please proceed to checkout.
The order alarm has been developed and is being constantly improved upon with the help of practicing doctors. Our current experience shows us that the more often you use the order alarm, the more precise the order recommendations become. Step by step, the added value to you continues to grow and you are likely to discover that you will no longer want to order without it.
To determine whether a need exists and consumables need to be ordered, a corresponding note will appear on your "My Account" page. Our email notification service is even more convenient as it sends you an automatic message, when one of your stocked products is running low.
