Our Supply Management Services streamline processes and increase resource availability.
Increase Researcher Productivity
Reduce Purchasing Costs
Lower Inventory Management Costs
Improve Regulatory Compliance and Safety
RIMS is used for managing the supply chain from its source to the laboratory bench. Using our innovative Web to RIMS interface, we can link on-site inventory to your current ordering process. RIMS provides improved inventory management and efficiency, resulting in reduced inventory costs, improved manpower utilization and increased availability of supplies. This means improved working capital for you.
As much as 50% of lab inventory is not needed.
Fact. Based on a four-month study involving multiple labs, Unity Lab Services estimates that anywhere between 15 to 90% of inventory goes unused.
Using only a "Just in Time" inventory model is always best.
Fiction. Where research is highly variable and supply demand is uncertain, having a better balance of inventory models can reduce overall costs.

Fact. Average researchers spend more than two hours a week ordering and putting away supplies. Also, they lose valuable time looking for supplies and meeting compliance issues.
There is always enough room in labs to store supplies.
Fiction. Excessive supplies take up valuable lab space and create potential safety concerns.
