A large hospital system enlisted the expertise of eBridge Business Solutions to purchase new, state of the art radiology equipment for one of their hospitals, utilizing the reverse auction process. The purchase included four line items along with installation costs.
eBridge sourced five suppliers to participate in the event.
During the course of the bid, the five suppliers placed a total of 52 bids. The final low bids were 30% below the hospitals’ budget amount for this purchase and are poised to run several auctions for additional equipment before the end of the year.
eBridge purchasing professionals provided guidance to the hospitals’ purchasing staff throughout the process. With the expertise and strong partnership with the innovative team of purchasers at the hospital, the event was a success and delivered bottom line savings to the hospital organization.
