Information flow optimisation

Information flow optimisation includes proactive notification when our industry partners are unable to deliver products and when products become available again for delivery; distribution centres and pharmacies are therefore kept up to date and orders can be placed at an early stage.

To increase product availability, we establish supplementary delivery agreements with our partners and maintain regular communication regarding changes to sales units in order to optimise the ordering process. A key component of early notification for deliveries and process simplification is the implementation of an electronic data interchange (EDI) for delivery notes and invoices.

With our industry expertise, we provide information about market demand through forecasts, etc., thereby enhancing our partners’ planning quality and production/inventory optimisation.

By working intensively with our suppliers, we optimize our information and goods flow along the supply chain. Therewith, an improved patient care is ensured.Stefan Koenes, Lead of Supply Chain Optimization & Product Compliance

Product flow optimisation

With our expertise in supply chain management, we optimise the flow of products between our suppliers and PHOENIX. Increased attention to original packaging units (original boxes, pallets) in the ordering and delivery process reduces delivery interruptions and simplifies handling during picking and receipt of incoming goods. Furthermore, an analysis of the complete ordering process provides ideas for process optimisation.
