Purchasing medical equipment for your newly constructed, expanded or remodeled off-site medical facility is not an easy task. Off-site is different from reordering standard medical supplies, and requires additional research, order processing, tracking of shipments, receipt of products, end-use site delivery, and staging. Being a complex task, it has several pain points that may include ordering errors, delivery challenges, damaged equipment, receiving, and opening delays. At CME, we help customers to avoid these pain points when making purchases.
