Owens & Minor Selects RedPrairie Warehouse Management System
RedPrairie Corp. has announced that OM HealthCare Logistics, a new business unit of Owens & Minor, has adopted RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management solution to handle its third-party logistics distribution center operations. OM HealthCare Logistics is using the system for medical device and pharmaceutical distribution and management and will also use the system for kitting and serialization track and trace for its clients in the future.
“Our organization needed a solution that could handle complex domestic and international distribution requirements, as well as compliance with FDA regulations,” said Denise Odenkirk, OM HealthCare Logistics Vice President, in a press release. “We ship to multiple types of clients – hospitals, integrated health care systems, distributors, physicians, alternate care locations, sales representatives, and the federal government – so the solution had to be effective for all of them. RedPrairie’s experience in dealing with healthcare companies has helped us optimize operations in our warehouse.”
OM HealthCare Logistics uses the solution for clinical supply samples as well as reverse logistics. RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management solution can handle those operations and offers functionality designed to enable compliance, recall management, and expiry date notification.
“RedPrairie’s solutions have been helping healthcare companies like Owens & Minor manage their supply chains for many years,” added Mike Mayoras, RedPrairie's CEO, in the press release. “We’re pleased to be working with their organization to contribute to a more efficient and safe medical industry overall.”
