Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions on the Exchange  

Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, located in Monterey County in CA, looked to OpenMarkets to find options for small N95 face masks. Salinas started preparing in early November for an increase in COVID-19 cases, that within the past two months has spiked from 20,000 to 35,500 cases, The New York Times.  Marjorie, Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions’ National Sales Director, connected with a Salinas team member on the Exchange within minutes and provided the masks current price in her initial message. Salinas asked if the masks were new in the box and if a lot number could be provided, which Marjorie confirmed yes to both. Marjorie sent over pictures of the product and provided a quote for the asking amount, which Salinas decided to move forward with a purchase. 

During COVID-19, quick access to those trusted suppliers that can fill PPE orders is essential and the Exchange makes the process easy to stay connected with suppliers you’ve worked with in the past. Salinas made an additional purchase of masks from Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions while the purchase of the original N95 masks was still taking place. Each order was discussed and purchased all in one place on the Exchange, bringing Salinas closer to simplifying their healthcare purchasing process.  

The Exchange was instrumental in facilitating multiple transactions between Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System and Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions. The Exchange dashboard allows for convenient access to uploaded forms, quotes, certifications or other documents about the products while conversing with a team member from the supplier.
