PartsSource, a fully-integrated, supply chain procurement and advanced logistics platform, has expanded access to critical stock, advanced training, and decision support for technology management and clinical engineering teams through the release of PartsSource Pro 2019.
PartsSource Pro 2019 offers three new features: guaranteed availability of mission-critical parts; integration of technical documentation for part validation, and discounted elite training courses in equipment maintenance. As a result of this release, members of the PartsSource Pro community will be further equipped to speed-up repair, ensure clinical availability, and lower their cost of service. The updates include:
- Data science-powered guaranteed stock. When suppliers have back ordered parts or are slow to ship, it leads to delays in repair, along with lost revenue, waiting patients, and idle staff. To speed time-to-repair, PartsSource leverages data science and predictability of which mission-critical replacement parts are out of stock or slow to ship. These critical products now will be guaranteed in-stock at the PartsSource warehouse, ready for shipment to members of the PartsSource Pro community, saving customers stock-out or back-order days.
- Instant access to technical documentation. Before a purchase, a clinical engineer often must validate a repair or replacement part against the equipment make and model to ensure the right product is selected. Part validation can be difficult because technical documentation of the equipment is often outdated or difficult to access. As a result, the wrong part may be ordered inadvertently, causing uptime delays. To improve part identification, PartsSource Pro now offers an integration to equipment documentation inside the PartsSource online platform, providing access to manual and preventive maintenance schedules for validated part selection.
- Rebates on elite online training courses. Clinical engineers are increasingly managing more advanced equipment, which can be difficult when advanced training courses are required to learn the intricacies of the equipment but professional educational budgets are tight or non-existent. Now, members of the PartsSource Pro community will receive a discounted rate on hundreds of training courses for radiology, mammography, CT, ultrasound, networking, PACS, and DICOM.
“The release of PartsSource Pro 2019 further empowers customers with real-time access to information, advanced training and critical products to get mission critical assets up and running for their patients,” says Philip Settimi, MD, president and CEO of PartsSource.
