Mayo Healthcare "Tender-Ready" with Bizcaps Support
Catalogues, data management, Business Process
The health care tender submission process is often a complex one, with health industry suppliers required to supply 84 mandatory data fields for each product supplied to a State or Territory health procurement body.
Suppliers are turning to Australian software company Bizcaps Software which has extensive experience in setting up straightforward solutions to help health suppliers publish their product data onto the NPC (National Product Catalogue), a GS1-hosted data repository, which serves as a single source of product and pricing information for Australia’s public health supply chain. Bizcaps is an GS1 Alliance Partner.
As health contracts and tenders come up for renewal, distributors in the health industry are under increased pressure to list their products on the NPC. However, once product information is held in the NPC, the tender process becomes straightforward, with most of the required product information then able to be automatically input into the tender document.
Amy Gormly is the Commercial Analyst and Regulatory Affairs Manager for Mayo Healthcare, responsible for getting the company’s product data into a NPC-compliant format.
“We needed a middleware company to marry our existing data, with the set of standards from GS1,” Ms Gormly says. Mayo selected Australian software company Bizcaps Software partly due to their expertise in the GS1 standards, but also because of their health industry experience through an extensive client list.
She has been delighted with Bizcaps as a project partner. “As the primary representative leading the NPC Project for Mayo Healthcare, I needed to work with a company that I could talk openly and honestly with, and tell them where we found troubles or where we were going to see time delays,” she says.
“Our key contacts at Bizcaps were great communicators. Coupled with the services and products they were offering, Bizcaps were the standout choice for us.”
The Mayo NPC Project continues to be a big undertaking, she adds. “With all of our contracted products now compliant, the next step for us is to ensure that our remaining stocked items are visible to our customers.”
