New JumpStock™ Enhancements Cut Inventory Handling Costs for Healthcare Industry

Time-Saving Kanban Inventory Method Support and Mobile Device Enhancements Introduced

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Jump Technologies®, a leader in combining smart technology with the convenience of cloud computing for efficient supply chain management solutions, today announced new enhancements for its JumpStock™ inventory management application for the healthcare industry. The application now supports more efficient and staff-friendly two-bin Kanban inventory tracking. In addition, new mobile features enable users to find, create and transfer products. Since JumpStock is a cloud-based application, the new capabilities are automatically available for use without any user download required.

A Modern Healthcare survey about supply chain issues found that nearly 80% of the healthcare executives who participated in the survey said reducing medical and surgical-supply costs is a formal part of their organization's strategic plan. As a result, more organizations are adopting Kanban inventory tracking to save care providers time and reduce handling costs.

"Kanban is an antidote for simplifying today's overly complicated supply chain. Since major distributors can deliver almost anything the next day, this two-bin tracking system is ideal for low-cost, frequently consumed items," said Jump Technologies CEO and Chief Technologist John Freund. "Instead of having the care provider scan all items they use, a single scan of an empty bin provides JumpStock all the necessary order information. The saved time can be directed to patient care."

Additional JumpStock enhancements now empower a mobile device to manage inventory across a healthcare organization from anywhere at any time by:

  • Browsing inventory for all items
  • Transferring items from one location to another
  • Finding items in any location
  • Creating an item when not found
  • Adding a barcode or UPC to existing inventory items
  • Customizing item labels with any file format
  • Creating/editing custom vendor items
  • Taking/adding photos of items with device's built-in camera

Forbes named JumpStock™ one of the five best inventory applications for its ease of use and fast time to ROI. It is the first easy-to-implement and use cloud-based inventory management solution for the healthcare industry, and can be up and running in less than one week. JumpStock also eliminates non-compliant use with a combination of convenient devices, including key fob barcode scanners, smartphones and tablets.
