RightChain Healthcare Results

RightChain implementations simultaneously increase revenue, reduce expenses and reduce capital charges. The overall result is higher gross margins, higher profitability, and higher return on capital investment.


In supply chain terms, revenue increases via higher fill rates and optimized store delivery frequencies and timing. Expenses are lowered via optimized transportation, warehousing, and sourcing. Supply chain capital charges are decreased via optimized inventory levels, optimized logistics infrastructure designs, and optimized rates.

Historically RightChain implementations yield the following range of results.

1. Lower Inventory (9% to 36%)

2. Higher Fill Rates (2 to 7 points)

3. Lower Supply Chain Costs (8% to 23%)

4. Faster Retail Response Times (1 to 3 days)
