Headquartered in Erlangen, Germany, Siemens Healthineers enables healthcare providers around the world to meet their challenges in any environment. The company offers products and services in diagnostic and therapeutic imaging and in laboratory diagnostics and molecular medicine.

A Demand Solutions DS1 user since 2007, Siemens Healthineers wanted to upgrade to a solution that would more effectively support its supply chain planning team which is distributed across four continents. The company evaluated Demand Solutions DSX alongside an SAP solution before selecting DSX.

“We were looking for a highly reliable supply chain planning system that could respond to dynamic data changes,” says Joanna George, senior manager of global demand planning and processes, Siemens Healthineers. “The users who participated in the evaluation preferred Demand Solutions DSX because of its flexibility and breadth of functionality.”

Siemens Healthineers also appreciated the Demand Solutions team’s willingness to collaborate in implementing expiration date planning functionality. Siemens Healthineers hopes this functionality will help the company significantly reduce its expired inventory costs.

“We appreciate the opportunity to help Siemens Healthineers address the challenge of expired inventory around the globe,” says Bill Harrison, president, Demand Management. “We rebuilt our platform because we wanted it to be flexible enough to support specific business requirements and scalable enough for deployment across continents. We’re excited about the cost reductions Siemens Healthineers can achieve with Demand Solutions DSX.”
