The framework for Inventory Management Systems has been put in place to help NHS Trusts and GS1 software suppliers to interact effectively.
Ian Garvey, Managing Director of Epaccsys, commented “Epaccsys are very pleased to be on the approved supplier framework. It demonstrates our continued commitment to the NHS to help them improve efficiency, patient safety and reduce costs through GS1 compliant Inventory Management Systems.”
Epaccsys are already a proud GS1 industry partner. The GS1 standards have been adopted by the NHS and are designed to improve efficiency, visibility and patient safety across the supply chain of the NHS.
The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (NHS CPP) has been working for over 10 years and has delivered substantial benefits to the NHS and wider public sector, returning more than £130 million to frontline healthcare.
The partnership represents approximately 60% of NHS Trusts and organisations to pool collective purchasing power and invest back into patient care.
The Epicor ERP System is used by NHS Trusts to meet their procurement and GS1 – Stock and Inventory Management requirements. The full suite of modules available include full ERP, Accounting and Financial Management, Distribution, Inventory and Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Asset Tracking and Maintenance.
