The right product, at the right time, in the right place – 150 hospitals onboard!

During the month of March, when we in Switzerland were literally overwhelmed by the effects of COVID-19, hystrix medical was able to bring together a large number of our users with regard to their urgent product demand as well as delivery capacity. They were thus able to experience directly the massive advantages of a central hub for market information in the healthcare sector, both in procurement and in sales. The right product, at the right time, in the right place. The Handelszeitung reported on this in its article of 7 May.

Supplier Version 2.0 LIVE

The new and improved supplier interface has been released today. The interface incorporates critical feedback compiled during the pilot testing phase of the marketplace from our supplier community. Suppliers are now able to efficiently enter into digital negotiation rounds with healthcare providers and provide whole-basket prices, as well as bundled offers. They are also able to quickly communicate through the tool with requesting hospitals and digitally sign contracts for the purchase of individual or multiple products. Further releases are planned for April and May that will deliver onboarded suppliers with autonomous view and change access rights for their uploaded products in their portfolio. The hystrix team would like to thank all those suppliers that participated in the various workshops over recent months that have resulted in this simple to use and effective interface.

hystrix medical crosses the 100,000 product level!

Anyone purchasing products on a marketplace will confirm, it is not the pure number of products that we list on hystrix that is important. Rather it is ensuring that we have the relevant products that our healthcare providers are looking for every day. That’s why the achievement of this milestone is all the more important. At hystrix, we are concentrating our supplier outreach on those suppliers that actively sell within Switzerland today and are requested to be present on the marketplace by Swiss hospitals. Our suppliers are therefore a mixture of local and international manufacturers and distributors that together are able to ensure we have ever-improving basket fill-rates.

The hystrix medical marketplace 2.0 is now LIVE

The hystrix medical marketplace has reached another milestone. In just under a year since go-live of the first version, we have overhauled the minimum viable product solution to a new and enhanced version that puts our partners’ needs right at the core. Hospital partners are able to quickly and easily search for products, to plan demand, to compare prices & suppliers, negotiate and to conclude contracts. Whilst this release is an important milestone for hystrix medical, we are far from finished. More functions and solutions to the problems faced by suppliers and healthcare providers are coming soon.
