Build Lasting Supplier Relationships All on One Platform: Top Suppliers in November

Working with OpenMarkets allows healthcare providers the opportunity to save time and money when researching, buying and selling equipment. Personal protective equipment (PPE), being the most difficult to source during the pandemic, has made hospitals branch out from their traditional channels.  Through the Exchange, OpenMarkets presents the option to connect with suppliers and form lasting relationships.

Schuyler Hospital requested quotes for nitrile gloves and was connected to several suppliers, including the 1441 Group. Carrie, from the 1441 Group, responded within 10 minutes of receiving the request. In her message, Carrie provided price per box, glove specifications and corresponding verification certificates. Carrie mentioned they had XL gloves that could be shipped immediately and were expecting a shipment with different sizes the following week.

Knowing they could connect with the supplier simply and securely, Schuyler Hospital followed up on the Exchange to get in touch with Carrie about the recent shipment and placed an order. Carrie provided updates on the shipments arrival and the gloves were sent out.

Schuyler Hospital returned to OpenMarkets a month later to request an order with 1441 Group again. A new Schuyler Hospital team member made the request and Carrie’s experience with the Exchange allowed her to easily get the new Schuyler user up to speed and in place to make an order.

Listed below, you will find just a fraction of 125+ suppliers that your healthcare facility can rely on during the COVID-19 pandemic. The top 15 suppliers for the month of November are awarded Top Supplier designations for their above and beyond efforts in the Exchange to accommodate provider’s needs.
