Ensuring your procurement is the picture of health

Why Unite is the perfect prescription for your procurement processes

In healthcare, efficient procurement ensures the smooth operation of essential services that impact lives. Navigating this critical complexity is challenging, especially with staff shortages and a lack of strategic procurement expertise exacerbating the situation. Yet, in this demanding environment, timely access to supplies is crucial.

Efficient procurement addresses backorders, diverse demands, and cost streamlining, keeping healthcare machinery running smoothly for timely patient care without delays.

Why healthcare companies are switching to Unite

Backorders, bossed

Data done right

At Unite, all suppliers use ECLASS to categorise their data, and we map articles from your ERP system with ECLASS numbers too – so there’s no clean-up required.

Standard operating procedure

Unite reduces maverick buying, streamlines processes across all your locations, and gives you essential transparency over your spend – from ordering to invoicing.
