Inventory management … something that is always on the never-ending to-do list, but is often left low on the priority list. Sowingo is here to help offices take control of their dental supplies in an efficient way so that the primary focus can remain on patient care!
Fact: most offices spend roughly $100,000 annually on supplies.
Fact: most practitioners don’t know the value or quantity of their dental supplies in the office.
Here are the top five reasons why using Sowingo helps your practice.
1. Cost Control Improves Profitability
Sowingo immediately helps an office save by avoiding: (i) unused expired supplies and (ii) pricey last minute orders.
Sowingo’s cloud-based inventory management software allows for tracking expiry dates and minimum quantity levels. Simply setting these inventory thresholds allows staff to effortlessly keep tabs on supplies while helping the practitioner run a leaner, more profitable practice.
2. Time Management Improves Production
Sowingo can reduce the amount of time staff spend on managing orders and inventory to less than 30 minutes per week. Why? Sowingo allows for full inventory control, from the ordering of the supplies, to receiving into inventory and ultimately tracking usage – all in real-time. At any time, and anywhere, Sowingo can tell you how many products have been used, how many are remaining, and where everything is located.
3. Get What You Pay For
Ordering multiple supplies from multiple different suppliers? Having a good inventory management system in place allows you to understand: (i) what you ordered, (ii) how often it’s being ordered, and (iii) the cost of the items ordered. This information places the office firmly in control.
Sowingo’s platform has an integrated order management feature which allows for recording orders from any vendor, right through to receiving and updating the office inventory counts. This feature allows an office to verify purchases against delivery – ensuring you get what you paid for!
4. No More Hidden Piles of Expired Supplies
Offices are run by a team of professionals but the reality is that despite best intentions, things go missing, supplies are “temporarily” moved and subsequently forgotten and practices end up with more supplies than required, or worse, a pile of expired inventory
With Sowingo, there is minimal confusion when it comes to looking for the right products required for a procedure. With a few clicks all staff can easily search and locate any item reducing confusion and reducing the chance an office forgets about a stash of inventory.
5. Know Your Practice
For dental practices, having a clear understanding of inventory usage provides an accurate picture of spending as it relates to production. This information provides key inventory insights, whether they are being used efficiently, whether they are being purchased at competitive prices, and whether there is an overstock of supplies.
Sowingo’s dashboard view provide these metrics in real-time. It enables a practice to understand their inventory status at a quick glance, helping keep inventory usage in line with office production.
Sowingo is invaluable for practice appraisals, loss from theft and fire damage and allows new employees to transition effortlessly into your practice!
