Hardware upgrades included state-of-the-art Structured Query Language (SQL)/Windows servers and T1 line redundancy. Software implementation included increased functionality to track surgical loaner kits in the field, integration with third party logistics tracking features, enhanced access and reporting of inventory currently in-process and in finished goods, and upgraded virtualization software to provide quicker response times and an extremely high degree of reliability.
