Columbus U.S. has completed Phase One of the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management for orthopedic medical device contract manufacturer Mach Medical. Mach Medical’s mission is to deploy disruptive supply chain platforms that radically reduce joint-replacement implant inventory and time to market for orthopedic Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM).
“The Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management implementation went very smoothly. We rolled out on time and came in on budget,” said Steve Rozow, General Manager, Mach Medical. Phase One included core financials, purchasing, inventory, production control, sales and warehouse management.
“We're excited to partner with Mach Medical to continue building on this foundation of core ERP with capabilities that allow them to add real value for their clients and partners by leveraging Microsoft’s full technology stack, including Power Platform and Advanced Analytics on Azure,” said Matthew Boese, Vice President of Digital Advisory for Columbus U.S.
Rozow credited the ease of use and the streamlined rollout of the out-of-the-box solution as well as automation that is built into Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management for Mach’s quick adoption of the solution. “We’re able to quickly bring people up to speed,” he said.
Mach Medical’s proprietary high-velocity, single-piece flow manufacturing approach is designed to reduce inventory levels by 80%, trim per-part manufacturing costs by 30%, and cut new product time-to-market by one to two years.
“We want to unlock value in the orthopedic healthcare supply chain that is tied up in the cost of holding inventory in the healthcare system,” Rozow said. “There is a lot of inefficiency in how a product gets from the patient planning phase to the operating room that we’re focused on removing. To do that, we needed to partner with an organization and technology solution that supports that mission. As we thought about what we were looking to achieve, we decided this was the right platform to help us get there.”
Mach Medical plans to leverage Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management along with Azure Machine Learning to create advanced analytical models that will be central to its goal of lowering inventory levels, trimming per-part manufacturing costs, and cutting time to market. Mach Medical also plans to expand Dynamics 365 with a portal accessible by physicians or OEMs for tracking the status of devices required for procedures.
