Cost Savings Advantages with Direct-to-Site Delivery

By CME Corp Staff | September 22, 2014

If you’re opening up a new medical facility or just simply looking to remodel your current practice, direct-to-site delivery can help save you money.

Instead of handling everything separately, what if you had a medical equipment distributor that handled everything? Direct-to-site distributors, like Hospital Associate do just that, from placing the orders, to delivering the equipment on your time frame and even assembling the item(s) and removing packing materials for you.  

By using a direct-to-site delivery service, you have the ability to save on the cost of medical equipment and time by having it completely set up in just 12 weeks.

Cost saving advantages using Direct-to-Site Delivery:

Fewer Purchase Orders Placed

By consolidating purchase orders (POs) using our service, you reduce administration cost and labor, which allows your team to concentrate on other required tasks.  POs can usually cost a company between $75 and $125 per PO.

Reduced Number of Deliveries

By minimizing the number of deliveries to your facility, you reduce overall freight-in costs to transport the goods.  This decreases the risk of products being misplaced or lost, and shortens the time of delivery so you can begin working sooner.  Decrease the hassle and energy spent monitoring numerous deliveries by having a direct-to-site distributor in charge of the whole thing.

Dismiss Outsourced Logistics Company/Warehouse

Not having to deal with warehouse storage allows you to eliminate offsite storage fees and over-handling.  A direct-to-site operation minimizes the potential for loss or damaged goods.  With fewer hands tangled up in the process, you can be sure your equipment will arrive safely and on-time.

Enhanced Delivery on your Schedule

With a Direct-to-Site delivery, your equipment is delivered to the actual floor location where it is to be used and at a time, which is optimally convenient to avoid interference with patient visits.  Our educated and experienced staff facilitates the installation, training and demos to ensure you utilize each piece of equipment correctly, and we remove all packaging materials.

12 Week Timeline

A White Glove Service provided by your distributor, like CME, can take you from PO placement to installed products in approximately 12 weeks or less.  Your medical facility is set up in entirety on a strict deadline to guarantee you are up and running in a timely manner.  The sooner your facility is ready, the sooner you can start treating patients.

By using a Direct-to Site Delivery process, you have a streamlined approach to equipment management and cost saving advantages.  Dealing with one point of contact reduces stress, saves you time and money, and guarantees an efficient set-up.
