How we enabled a leading Indian diagnostics brand to increase its returns on cash funds to a staggering 15.66%

Client Overview

Our client is by far one of the most well known diagnostic lab chains in the country, offering diagnostic tests and other associated healthcare services across 200+ locations across India, with an employee count of over 3000.

Over the years, the organisation, on the back of its stellar reputation and reliability, has become one of the biggest brands in pathology, laboratory and diagnostic services in India and beyond

Key Challenges

Over the years, the company faced inefficiencies with its partners in the Supply Chain. Some of these included:

Prevalence of Traditional Cash Discounting: Only a handful of the company’s vendors ever asked for their bills to be discounted.

Lack of a common digital platform: Requests were made on Emails and Calls, and coupled with low vendor participation, did not take off as expected
