Ever feel like you are as efficient as you can be, yet you are being pushed to be even more efficient?
We did too, so we built it.
A one time setup is performed in each stock room. All of the bins are tagged with an RFID chip and a receptacle capable of reading RFID tags is placed in the stock room. As the receptacle in each room recognizes a new bin, the count will update on the dashboard.
See the entire status of your hospital stock rooms with a single glance at the Phil dashboard. This data is accessible from anywhere you have an internet connection so you will always know the status of your stock rooms no matter where you are physcially located.
Drill into a stock room in order to see which bins are empty. Say goodbye to staff spending time walking to each inventory in order to tell what needs to be restocked.
Start the Phil process to generate a pick list for the empty bins and streamline your distribution process. The Phil process is completely customizable and can integrate with the material management software you are currently using.
With Phil, you are able to see which products are ready to be replenished and which products may be completely out. Most importantly, you can now see what is in need of replenishment with the click of a mouse instead of requiring an employee to walk throughout the hospital.
Finally, a solution that allows you to move past the things you have to do….and move on to the things you need to do! With Phil, the “have to” of monitoring thousands of products in a hospital, is now gone and your staff can focus on more important needs of Supply Chain.
With Phil, you can greatly increase the number of inventory turns by having a much more accurate replenishment and issuing process.
