The challenge

Navigating Complexity in Medical Supply Distribution

AOSS’s story delves beyond the intricacies of medical supply; it’s a narrative of navigating complexity, adapting to evolving landscapes, and redefining the e-commerce experience.

Prior to adopting Sana Commerce Cloud, AOSS faced challenges with their existing ERP-connected commerce platform. It struggled to handle complex tasks such as unit of measure and trade agreements, leading to decay in performance and customization limitations.

The uptime struggled to reach 80%, impacting customer satisfaction and relationships, especially in an industry where quick order fulfilment is crucial.

We did not have a B2B e-commerce platform, we went with a recommendation from another company. It worked well for the beginning but as the company grew and customers were onboarded it showed signs of growth decay and lacked the ability to handle complex tasks.

The solution

Accelerated value with a ready-to-use SaaS web store

AOSS turned to Sana Commerce Cloud for a comprehensive commerce solution tailored to the intricacies of medical supply distribution. This digital transformation aimed to simplify order management, enhance personalization, and optimize content and data management.

Primary goals for AOSS’s new e-commerce site:

  • Swift Implementation & Maintenance: AOSS prioritized a rapid implementation within 90-140 days, aiming for a quick time-to-value. This strategic move aimed to secure against potential customer loss and reduce the time spent on ticket resolutions, ultimately safeguarding AOSS’s reputation in the competitive landscape.
  • Personalization for Precision: Focusing on personalization, AOSS dedicated efforts to tailor solutions for trade agreements and unit of measurement intricacies. The goal was not merely to meet industry standards but to exceed customer expectations, laying the foundation for a unique and tailored customer experience.
  • Empowering Sales & Channel Support: With the prospect of a new commerce solution, AOSS strategically planned to streamline processes to handle a surge in requests, aiming to provide robust support for the sales team in managing high-value opportunities.
  • Streamlining Content & Data Management: Recognizing the complexity in products and the necessity for real-time data, AOSS sought a digital commerce solution that could seamlessly handle this complexity and grow with their evolving needs.

Important features that we were looking for, that we expected should have been standard, most other companies had this as customizations. Sana Commerce offered it at a click of a button. Simply plug and play, that was a huge win!
