I see tremendous potential for OrbitalRX to help us in many more ways in the future  —  and not just from a shortage perspective. I see opportunities from an overall utilization perspective because it pulls in so much good data.

Since the OrbitalRX team had experience with our inventory management systems, their expertise helped us transition quickly. I was surprised just how little we needed to be involved in the implementation work.
