Optimized spare parts supply for medical devices and equipment.

Valuable medical devices and equipment are constantly used to full capacity. A fast and reliable spare parts logistics service is required to ensure the fast and reliable upkeep and maintenance of systems. In addition to routine maintenance work, acute malfunctions must be remedied as soon as possible, to avoid high costs as well as the disruption of the time schedule for patients in need of treatment.

An optimized spare parts supply leads to:

  • A decrease in the amount of time patients spend in a facility as well as improved equipment profitability through reduced standstill periods.
  • A reduction in inventory expenses through lower scrapping costs and minimized depreciation.
  • An increased profitability for technical services through the opportunity of enhanced planning and frequency coordination for service engineers.
  • Advantages over the competition through more attractive maintenance contracts.
