Published: Fri, 02 Jul, 2021

Mat Oram, CEO & Co-founder, AdviseInc “We’re delighted to be have won the Health Tech Leaders Award for ‘Outstanding Supplier Contribution’ in recognition of our PPE tracking and forecasting system, StockWatch.

“The tool was created by our team in response to an NHS trust who needed to understand what PPE they had, where it was and how long it would last. The first version was developed and rolled out in an afternoon. Now on v3, we’ve gone on to support over 200 local and regional healthcare teams track and forecast their PPE and at no cost. We’ve had some great partners support us along the way, including  the wider Health Tech community. It’s given our team a real sense of pride for all the effort they’ve put in.”

Neil Hind, GM NHS Procurement Programme Director, NHS in Greater Manchester “AdviseInc’s free PPE Tracker (StockWatch) has been a key enabler in understanding & tracking PPE across all of our public services in Greater Manchester. In a matter of days, we’ve gone from spreadsheets and inconsistent data to a clean, single source of the truth that is updated in near real-time. The numbers are now a core part of our daily meetings and enables the system to clearly understand daily stock levels of PPE across the region and better forecast demand. It was evidenced at the end of the first week when our MoD colleagues were able to use the data to feed into the national picture with data available at the click of a button. We really appreciate the time and effort AdviseInc are putting into this at such a critical time for our public services.”

Sue Colbeck, Associate Director of Procurement, Liverpool University Hospitals NHS FT “AdviseInc were quick to onboard our trust (over the space of a weekend) and the team have provided fantastic support every step of the journey since. StockWatch has helped remove Excel from the process of tracking PPE and has provided consistent data not only across my trust, but the STP and Region too. Transparency of PPE stock levels and daily consumption has enabled mutual aid across the region. We now have visibility of all critical PPE across three sites and stock issues out to 100+ wards. AdviseInc’s knowledge of healthcare, products and their appreciation of the challenges we face in a hospital environment has been instrumental in creating an agile, light-touch, easy to use solution that’s helped my team keep frontline staff protected during Covid19.”
