INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- NoInk Communications, a leading provider of integrated handheld and Web-based technology for the medical device industry, today announced that Advanced Bionics will introduce NoInk's SalesAccelerator(TM) application suite to its sales and management teams. Advanced Bionics, a spinal stimulation system manufacturer, plans to completely eliminate the use of laptops and transition to NoInk's hosted mobile SFA software solution, which will be deployed to field reps via Pocket PCs. Advanced Bionics has also selected NoInk to address its inventory, order management and case management needs.
"NoInk's SalesAccelerator software is an effective tool because it simplifies the way our sales reps relay information from the field. It allows them to record call details in less time, communicate more effectively with physicians and send timely and accurate information to our corporate office," said Jim Surek, vice president of sales for Advanced Bionics. "And by creating more visibility into the sales process, the technology makes it easier for our managers to lead our sales team."
With NoInk's solution, Advanced Bionics will be able to streamline its inventory and order processing systems. Sales reps can submit purchase orders in a timely fashion, saving the company days of tracking down orders from reps via traditional e-mail or phone methods. By streamlining the purchase ordering process, Advanced Bionics can expedite transactions for improved cash flow. With real-time visibility, Advanced Bionics can also track which devices are implanted in patients as well as verify and replenish inventory from the trunk to the surgeon's closet.
"By selecting NoInk's software, Advanced Bionics puts incredible capabilities into the hands of its sales team," said Robert Compton, chief executive officer of NoInk Communications. "With our applications, Advanced Bionics' reps will be able to deliver an unprecedented level of service and responsiveness to their physician customers."
