Hospital mailroom staff can have a lot on their plates during the day. They must receive and handle countless shipments of medicine, medical equipment and medical supplies. Also, they must promptly and accurately deliver these packages to concerned departments within the hospital. This can get really hectic and tiring for them, especially if they’re required to do all the work manually.
While hospitals are recognized for being strong proponents of the use of technology, it’s often seen that when it comes to in-house package handling operations, they lack technology zeal.
Most hospitals today, still log packages by hand and rely on manual processing of inbound shipments.
That’s not savvy at all!
Imagine, how much time your hospital mailroom staff can save if they log packages digitally instead of doing it by hand? How much of their effort can be saved if they use an automated mail processing solution, such as package tracking software, for handling inbound packages?
Package tracking software can help you increase the productivity as well as the efficiency of your hospital mailroom staff. By using the software, your hospital staff can log inbound packages digitally into the system to save time and effort.
Package tracking software also facilitates timely delivery of packages to concerned departments.
Most package tracking software come with notification feature that enables users to instantly inform the recipients (the departments) about the arrival of their packages. This way, the department’s staff can come and collect their supplies from the mailroom counter in a timely fashion.
Furthermore, package tracking software also provides convenient tracking of packages within a building of the hospital by providing a complete chain of custody for the package. This can help your hospital mailroom staff to locate any misplaced packages conveniently.
Finally, package tracking software can also help you reduce your mailroom operations cost by enabling you to go paperless.
So, why log packages by hand when a package tracking software can make everything so convenient, efficient and cost effective for you?
