Wound Closure Inventory Management

PANDAC is a comprehensive, on-site product inventory program that helps control purchases and eliminates excess wound closure inventory while maintaining supply levels.

Reduce PAR Levels, Waste, and Freight

Inventory management, especially for wound closures, can be challenging, time-consuming, and highly variable, resulting in wasted inventory and high costs. For more than 45 years, PANDAC has helped customers control purchases and eliminate excess wound closure inventory while maintaining supply levels.

Increasing Inventory Turns with PANDAC

One of the benefits customers realize with PANDAC is an increase in inventory turns of their sutures and endo mechanical. PANDAC will work with a hospital to consolidate slower-moving SKUs into faster-moving SKUs so that there are fewer SKUs to manage. The result if is less inventory carried, lower costs and a higher number of turns for the suture and endo-mechanical inventory.
