The Challenge

Planning and distribution inefficiencies, which had resulted from a Global systems conversion, were leading to incomplete or late deliveries. This placed significant pressure on Beckman Coulter’s staff while negatively impacting end user satisfaction, revenue recognition, supply chain costs and new instrument sales.

The Solution

SEKO MedTec consulted with on-site field engineers and hospital practitioners before deploying SEKO best-in-class supply chain practices. This included freight consolidation at destination, phone based pre-delivery site surveys, and a dedicated customer service control tower team. The MySEKO web based customer portal was provided to all Beckman Coulter distribution centers and field logistics managers, enabling real-time shipment management and reporting. A Continuous Improvement Program was also established, in order to support regular business reviews.

The Result

Order completeness and on-time delivery were drastically improved, leading to a reduction of field engineer hours required for each installation, and in corporate administrative overheads. Transportation expenses were reduced in comparison to Beckman Coulter’s previous logistics provider, and event planning and human resource scheduling was streamlined through the use of the MySEKO Scheduling tool - improving efficiency of transportation, inventory utilization, and human resources.

"I was really impressed with SEKO MedTec’s consultative approach to our distribution needs. They simply have the best execution and customer service of all my supply chain providers."
