Inventory Consulting

Real Strategies. Lasting Solutions.

1. On-Site

1:1 Consulting: Hospital Visit + Complete Overhaul

Our Premier Option Customized with Care for Single Practices

Get your tailor-made in-hospital complete transformation. You’ll get an audit + analysis of current inventory and system, evaluation for success, an action plan, and implementation of your customized step-by-step process. 

1. Initial Proposal + Analysis

After we share all the need-to-know information, we’ll conduct a thorough analysis of your inventory system, financial information, and several key performance indicators. Just FYI, we will nerd out over spreadsheets, reports, graphs, and numbers. 

2. Hospital Visit

This is the fun part! We get to meet and discuss the results of the analysis. We’ll do a hospital walk-through, and observe all the practices relating to inventory management. Together, we will look at your practice management system, your organizational setup ‒ all the ins and outs of your practice. We’ll even provide staff training and help setting up your practice management system during this time.

3. Treatment Plan

Your treatment plan will include a list of my recommendations for improvement, the specifics on how to accomplish this, and the recommended timeline. It’s time to get serious and start implementing it. From here, you have two options: (1) DIY it and we’ll check-in each month OR (2) choose the Done-With-You option and we’ll hold your hand every step of the way. 

4. Follow Up

We’ll ensure you have the tools, education, training, and confidence you need to manage inventory from this point forward. After our time together, we’ll still conduct monthly follow-ups and data analysis to ensure your success and profitability. We are here as your resource and ally.

Large Practice Groups

Large consolidators often have the worst systems and the highest cost of goods (COGs). Perhaps you’re bleeding money and you just can’t figure out how to get costs down internally. Or maybe you know at which location the problem lies, but your regional managers have been unable to solve the problems you face simply by working with those individual locations. Consolidators may face bigger problems, but we’ve learned they can also see the biggest benefits. 

On average, consolidators and practice groups that work with us via group coaching reduce their cost of goods by

train staff at multiple locations

5-11 percentage points ‒ and that frequently means a savings of $250,000+ per year! 

Outcomes You Can Expect

Reduce Cost of goods sold

Increase inventory turns to improve cash flow

Reduce inventory waste & decrease on-hand inventory value

Leverage the practice management system to automate & streamline inventory processes

decrease time spent managing inventory per week

Reduce the instance and amount of on-hand quantity adjustments

Nicole is willing to help you work through any issues you are having until it is resolved.

 I'm so astonished at how she identified an issue with inventory in the veterinary industry and made it her own. 

She has come up with protocols and policies and has provided so much information on how to fix problems you are having. She offers one on one training that you can’t get from anywhere else. I am so thankful I found Nicole and Veterinary Care Logistics.

- Dr. Sylvia Hewitt, DVM

for customers whom she has helped realize that inventory is manageable. She is very honest and professional with her approach. She has saved many of my client’s money by decreasing their cost of goods sold. Doing so is not as simple as it may sound. There are many factors to managing COGS, and Nicole is able to bundle those factors together for a great result. Nicole stays on top of current trends and industry news so she can apply those to your hospitals’ needs as necessary. She comes prepared with workbooks and resources and leaves you with specific directions and follow-through. She is my personal resource for anything inventory and industry practice.

Every interaction with Nicole has produced a sense of relief...

- Nicole G, Hospital Owner

Nicole was exceptionally helpful and full of knowledge. 

She got our practice on the right path to have our COGS under 16%.

We have a rapidly growing practice and were desperate to have systems in place to make our lives better and overall the practice. I would highly recommend Veterinary Care Logistics. Nicole will definitely make your practice more profitable as numbers don’t lie.
