Zimmer Biomet will also hold a workshop on the benefits it has seen through the use of Esker’s AI-driven automation solutions for order processing.
Both order management and supply chain processes are business critical in the medical device industry in terms of the impact to patient care. Numerous prominent companies in these sectors have chosen Esker’s order processing solution to automate order management to bring significant business benefits, including; Acelity, BASF, Bayer, Biomnis, GE Healthcare, Kern Pharma, Johnson & Johnson, Menarini, Novartis, Philips Respironics, Roche Italia, Sanofi, Siemens, St. Jude Medical, Terumo and Zimmer Biomet. Additionally, many of their customers are in the public sector and are already, or soon will be, affected by the European directive on mandatory e-invoicing, so automating the process for their customer invoices and sales orders will also be most beneficial.

- Reduction of order processing costs by up to 70%
