Through our Store & Ship program, we set up a My Storeroom online ordering portal for every department in the medical center. Each department received their own customized, picture-filled web catalog with department-specific forms and office supplies. All prices were pre-negotiated by the medical center’s purchasing team.
We gave each employee a desktop link to the My Storeroom website, along with a username and password. Next, we set up different levels of authorization for different users, so some orders ship directly and others require purchasing’s approval. We also taught the employees how to use the system.
Today, the system is a great success. We bundle each week’s orders, and our truck delivers the shipment every Monday morning.
By using our Store & Ship program for online ordering, the medical center achieved their goal of a streamlined ordering process. They made procurement more efficient while saving time and money!
