Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Vendormate today announced the latest release of Medzo™, its online sourcing tool that enables healthcare providers to efficiently locate new-to-market vendors offering emerging technologies or local-only products/services. Included in the latest release are powerful new features to include sourcing events, a streamlined way for hospitals to conduct RFIs (requests for information) – either publicly or anonymously – and home page newsfeeds, a way for vendors to find out about RFI events and broadcast their product/service news to hospitals.
Detroit Medical Center is just one of 1,100 healthcare facilities now utilizing Medzo as a means to search and find products and services, calling it the “Google of the healthcare industry.” But, hospital buyers are not the only ones to see value. Medzo offers vendors a way to specifically target their product/service information to the healthcare industry and the advantage to proactively hear about RFI opportunities as soon as hospitals launch a sourcing event via this online tool.
Said Florida-based supplier Les Miller of Micro Filtrations Inc., "Medzo and the newly released features are unlike any other marketing tool we have seen. Receiving notifications about new opportunities directly into our Medzo homepage can help us be a part of deals we would not have otherwise known about.” He continued, “Through the new promotion functionality, we can also get new product news and announcements directly to the right audience, without wasting time emailing or cold calling. These new features will significantly enhance our marketing strategies, helping us to drive more business."
Micro Filtrations is a highly specialized service/consulting firm focused on technical support for contamination control, a service that might be hard for hospitals to locate without a precise search/find tool like Medzo that zeros in on key words such as USP 797 consulting and cleanroom design/testing/certification.
Said Vendormate CEO Andy Monin, “Medzo is compatible with our existing procurement cycle solutions to include Contract Manager and Credential Manager, already widely-used and valued by hospitals.” He continued, “Using all three of our solutions enables a hospital to manage their purchasing from end-to-end via three applications that share vendor data. To vendors, we now offer a benefit to those already using our credentialing services ‒ a cost-efficient means for reaching their intended buyers.”
Vendormate’s Medzo marketplace includes not only its 1,800+ hospital partners, but a total of 6,900 healthcare facilities across the U.S., empowering vendors to target Medzo’s hospital network multiple ways – by geography, location, size, specialty and/or facility type. For hospitals, it offers an effective way for them to find vendor product/services of any kind, but also centralize and organize RFIs and resulting vendor replies – making Medzo a true win-win solution.
