Andrology Supply Chain Management

If you are considering ways to reduce your laboratories yearly consumables cost, secure reliable supplies, and ensure great-quality equipment, Hawksley provides free consultancy for all UK andrology and fertility laboratories.

As a starting point, we will work with you to identify and rationalise the existing costs of your consumables. This will involve gathering previous quotations & Purchase Orders, as well as assessing the annual consumption of each consumable used in your lab.

Building on this initial piece of work, Hawksley will identify any anomalies in your purchasing - due to price, quality, obsolescence or best practice. The result of this process will be a tangible document displaying what is currently purchased and where, but importantly it will display various options that can be supplied via Hawksley and even our competitors. Lab Managers and Purchasing Teams can then identify where savings and lead times would be made by switching suppliers
