About Supply Management

Lithotech’s Supply Management service enables branches, retail outlets and other remote business units to operate more efficiently – it facilitates decentralised ordering under central control and reduces operating costs.

These seemingly incompatible outcomes are achieved through a holistic approach to improving ordering, procurement, storage and distribution processes associated with non-trading items.

Supply Management is the one-stop, all-in-one service that leaves you to get on with business.

By incorporating our Supply Management service into the support network for your branches, Lithotech will streamline your procurement, storage, ordering and distribution processes – and save you money. 

Lithotech’s Supply Management service comprises two core elements:

  • An online procurement platform that is accessible by branches for the placing of orders of non-trading items. Using client-defined business rules such as minimum stock levels, maximum order value and individual authorisation levels, we ensure that orders are fulfilled correctly and within budgetary guidelines.
  • Secure warehousing with a sophisticated warehouse management system, from where items can be delivered speedily to branches.

Supply management agreements are customisable to each organisation’s requirements, and can incorporate any number of services from the range available. Services include sourcing, procuring, receiving, storing, picking and packaging, distributing and detailed reporting on items used by clients in their day-to-day business operations.
