    • Saved up to 3 hours of labor each day
  • Case Study: Banner Health

The strategy: reduce costs by storing and distributing high-volume items at the Banner Health Consolidated Service Center, while having low-volume items overnighted from Suture Express directly to end user facilities.

    • Reduced on-hand inventory
    • Lowered carrying costs
