CYBRA's EdgeMagic Improves Inventory Tracking at Elite Medical Supply
Medical Supply Company Reaps Benefits of Auto-ID Based Inventory Management
Yonkers, NY, May 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Elite Medical Supply of New York
has improved their operational efficiency by deploying CYBRA Corporation's
(OTC BB: CYRP.OB) EdgeMagic^® asset tracking solution to track medical
supplies in their inventory at their West Seneca warehouse location.
Elite Medical Supply is a Durable Medical Equipment supplier that specializes
in disorders of the spine. They decided to replace their former manual process
of adding and removing items from their inventory in favor of using bar code
technology to minimize displacement and easily locate medical supplies.
Before adopting CYBRA's tracking solution, Elite had a labor-intensive manual
process for receiving and tracking and had no way of determining how much
product was in any location aside from their main storage. Inventory
management was done the old fashioned way by counting stock regularly to
determine reorder needs.
CYBRA's solution had Elite's personnel affix unique bar code labels to every
medical item in their inventory. When supplies arrive, a staff member scans
the bar code with a hand-held scanner and this executes a "check-in" by
clicking a button which performs the action automatically. When a staff member
needs to ship an order to a customer, they select the "check-out" operation,
enter the order number and each product item is scanned. Scanned data updates
the EdgeMagic Inventory database reflecting changes to the inventory once the
check-in or check-out is confirmed. As products in inventory drop below a
predetermined level an alert is triggered to remind staff to reorder that
Chuck Roskow, CYBRA VP of Operations, stated, "Bar Code technology is proven
to reduce human errors in data collection. When combined with the powerful
query and reporting capabilities of our EdgeMagic RFID and Bar Code Software,
CYBRA offers HME (Home Medical Equipment) and DME suppliers a proven,
industrial strength solution for Medicare compliance."
Starting in 2009, Elite was at the forefront of the trend by implementing
CYBRA's bar-code tracking system. During the three years since, Elite's staff
members have noticed a drop in errors associated with their stock and locating
missing supplies became effortless. Dennis Abrahamson, Inventory Manager at
Elite Medical Supply comments, "We can have an average of 189 pieces a month
of average value of $500 each in transit, so being able to keep track of that
is critical". Mr. Abrahamson adds, "We could not have grown as quickly as we
have without the CYBRA system."
Now Elite's personnel are able to locate all supplies in any inventory
location quickly and efficiently with custom reports and location history for
any specific product at any time, and their staff can easily track and know
when to reorder products with a click of a button.
