Replacing conventional paper-based and email processes that were used to manage procurement transactions with CureMint’s eProcurement software, dental organizations have been able to increase operational efficiency significantly. With the help of the software’s dental specific intuitive interface that can be used without prior training, a dental assistant can manage their organization’s purchasing and sourcing processes. In addition, the platform works closely with dental vendors to ensure efficiency gains and visibility are occurring for both sides CureMint® empowers dental practices to gain real-time control over their budgets by delivering meaningful insights into purchasing behavior and stop rogue spending before it begins. “Without investing a significant amount of time and resources, dental practices can make better business decisions and increase profit,” says McCarty.
This software is especially a boon for smaller dental organizations that do not have a dedicated procurement department and rely on a single employee to manage purchasing supplies, among other duties.
In one instance, McCarty mentions how CureMint® helped a client consolidate and bring visibility to their organizational spend. The client was preparing for aggressive business expansion and anticipated that its 10 offices in different locations would grow to over 30 within a year. However, each of their branch offices was using separate supplier accounts and payment terms to transact with the vendors. Thus, the vendors failed to realize that all the different offices belonged to the same organization. Consequently, the pricing was disorganized and the client’s management team lacked visibility into their procurement processes. With CureMint’s help, the client was able to consolidate its procurement processes into a single platform and effortlessly keep track of their formulary while negotiating better terms and pricing. More importantly, they were able to increase productivity based on the insights gained from their spending behavior.
Over the years, CureMint® has been carefully considering the demands of its customers and implementing features to accommodate such requests. This can be further emphasized through the company’s rapidly growing customer base, which increased from less than 10 to over 120 in a year. CureMint® intends to leverage this momentum and expand its reach while remaining focused on enhancing its e-procurement platform. “We want to customers to touch and feel the impact of our system rather than unproductive demos and talking; this means onboarding clients in minutes, an accomplishment that has not been achieved by any of our contemporaries so far,” notes McCarty. With a zealous mindset to transform purchasing and sourcing processes into an organizational advantage for dental organizations, CureMint® intends to eliminate the complexity associated with e-procurement and make its platform accessible to all.
