Expandable Software Announces Fully Integrated Surgery Kit Module for Medical Device Manufacturers


Santa Clara, CA – April, 2018 – Expandable Software, Inc., a strategic provider of best-in-class integrated business management systems for growing medical device and high tech manufacturers, announced today the introduction of its surgical kit module as part of v9.4 release of its integrated ERP system.


The capabilities of the surgery kit module include manufacturing, stocking, shipping, invoicing, replenishing, cycle counting, and returning surgery kits either at the top surgery kit level or by transacting at the individual surgery kit component level.

“We are very excited about this new module as it targets significant pain points of medical device companies whose products include surgery kits that are shipped to hospitals on consignment,” said Expandable CEO Bob Swedroe. “We worked closely with some of our customers and prospects to ensure the functionality meets market requirements.

BioPro, a designer and manufacturer of high quality joint replacement implants and surgical devices, and an Expandable customer for 14 years, provided key input to the design and feedback during the beta testing for the surgery kit module. “Expandable’s surgery kit module has shown that it will not only improve our productivity by a minimum of 700% and accuracy of surgery kit transaction by orders of magnitude, but it will also provide critical information about the kit including which kits are full, partially full, and expiration dates,” said BioPro’s, Director of Product Design and Development, David Mrak.

“Currently, surgery kit management is typically done using applications that are not integrated with a company’s ERP system or by off-line spreadsheets. Seeing the market need for having a surgery kit application deliver a robust solution and embedded in an ERP system was the catalyst to launching this project,” added Swedroe.
