The experienced STOK personnel visit the hospitals regularly and take stock for all vendors, in all existing storage places. Here both the STOK capture system and the manufacturer-specific scanner solution will be used. Consumption is documented reliably, and correct and timely billing by the manufacturer is ensured. This relieves the pressure on both the sales team and the hospital for all aspects of stock taking and management, and frees them up to concentrate on sales and patient care. A designated liaison for each hospital builds trust with the nursing staff, and facilitates access to stock levels in stations and the operating theatre.
