TECSYS Expands Footprint in Hospitals With a Major Product for the Operating Room

Montreal, July 29, 2013—TECSYS Inc. (TSX: TCS), an industry-leading supply chain management software company, announced today the OR (Operating Room) Inventory Manager, TECSYS' innovative solution specifically designed for the perioperative supply chain environment. TECSYS' OR Inventory Manager optimizes the supply chain process, reduces costs and eliminates waste while capturing millions of dollars of expenses for billing and revenue recognition purposes.

"Operating rooms contribute more than 40% of the hospital's total expenses and 70% of revenue, making the OR supply chain very critical alongside patient care. With this level of optimization and cost reduction opportunity, we have expanded our footprint in hospitals and introduced TECSYS' OR Inventory Manager. It is a leap forward in supply chain management and the only complete supply chain solution that will transform the perioperative supply chain into service excellence for health systems," commented Peter Brereton, President & CEO of TECSYS.

According to the American Hospital Association (AHA), there are over 5,700 hospitals in the USA, each with a number of surgery centers. Furthermore, the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention) reported that there were over 50 million procedures performed in 2010 in the United States. Both of these facts demonstrate the magnitude and importance of management of the supply chain in this environment.

TECSYS' OR Inventory Manager enables full visibility, tracking and control of inventory anywhere in the health system. It allows the hospital to reduce inventory levels and at the same time decreases the incidences of human error and eliminates labor-intensive manual processes. It also enables the management of recalls and the ability to analyze and plan the acquisition of supplies to replenish inventory items, including expensive medical devices on consignment from suppliers.
