ATLANTA, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Vendormate VISION, the healthcare industry's flagship solution for vendor security and ethics compliance monitoring, makes it easier for users to gather and process the information they care about most with the release of VISION 4.0 today. Vendormate VISION 4.0 is produced by Vendormate, Inc., the leader in the emerging vendor information management category.
"Vendormate continues to distance themselves from the competition by asking the customer how to improve their product and then making those changes happen," said Alan Edwards, Director, Materiel Management, Children's Medical Center in Dallas. "Their continuous process and product improvement efforts reinforce our belief that we picked the best in breed for our organization."
Vendormate VISION streamlines the process of checking vendors and their representatives for acknowledgement and compliance with an enterprise's own policies and multiple government mandates regarding ethics, security, and financial behavior. Once vendors complete a simple screening and information process, Vendormate VISION tracks and reports to the enterprise each vendor's compliance status. Vendormate VISION also integrates vendor visitor badge functions to dissuade unauthorized access to client facilities.
Most hospitals typically have more than 3000 vendors. Collecting, organizing, and monitoring this type of information for each vendor is essential to materiel management, risk management, and compliance officers who are responsible for driving down their enterprises' purchasing expenses and risk exposure.
"The enhancements in this release were completely driven by our customers," said Andy Monin, Vendormate President and CEO. "For years, we've listened to our customer comments and tweaked our solution. Vendormate VISION 4.0 marks a giant leap forward in efficiency and user empowerment."
"The improved experience starts even before the homepage," said Bill Hayes, COO. "We've streamlined the Sign In process for vendors arriving onsite by 50%. The new homepage presents the four most popular content areas at a glance. Users will see who is on their premises in real time, who has recently registered as a vendor, overall vendor compliance metrics, and their vendor appointments."
Data that is not easily accessed and processed is often overlooked, so Vendormate VISION 4.0's new layout incorporates a tab-based modular format to allow users access to information according to their preferences. Most frequently used information and reports are moved front and center while other information is still easy to access. Data is cross-linked throughout the site to speed access.
In addition to a redesign of the User Interface, the Vendormate VISION 4.0 infrastructure lays the groundwork for flexibility and speed in delivering future customer-driven enhancements.
Vendormate protects the health of supply chains with a unique vendor credentialing and compliance monitoring solution. Using proprietary software for vendor registration, screening, rating, and cataloging, the program assures compliance with both internal policies and government mandates, including HIPAA and Stark Law. Registered vendors are evaluated against custom criteria and continuously monitored for non-compliance. An integrated badges feature controls facility access.
