When you are shopping for operating room equipment, you will probably have no shortage of important questions and concerns. After all, outfitting an operating room of any size is an investment and you do not want to settle for anything less than the best you can afford.
But remember, just because you want quality OR equipment shouldn’t mean you have to ignore your budget.
We want you to be knowledgeable about your options and well prepared to make an educated decision when it comes time to purchase so we’ve put together a list of five tips on how to save money without sacrificing quality.
5 TIPS ON SAVING MONEY WHEN OUTFITTING YOUR O.R.:
1.) Do Your Research
It is impossible to know everything there is to know about every piece of equipment out there, but putting a few hours of research into the product or products you are looking to buy will help you to be prepared and ready to shop around.
2.) Shop Around
Make sure you get several quotes from a few reputable companies before settling. Just because one company is better known than another doesn’t mean they’ll give you the better deal or the best customer service.
3.) Ask Questions
After you’ve put in some research, you will be able to ask a sales person plenty of questions and asking questions will do two things. 1-It will help you to gather knowledge about the product so that you can make an educated decision when purchasing and 2- it will clue you in on the knowledge of the staff you are buying from. If the sales person doesn’t have knowledge of the product, how can they help you reach an intelligent decision about what you need?
4.) Seek Opinions of Colleagues
Sometimes the best advice comes from a neighbor or colleague. Making discreet inquiries can help you get a feel for a company’s reputation for service. A neighbor or business acquaintance is likely to give you a candid, authentic review.
