After working in the medical supplies industry for six years, Muhammad Iqbal launched his own business called Inovatiqa, a global distributor of laboratory, medical, and dental supplies. Based in Houston, TX, Inovatiqa serves clients in Houston and its surrounding areas, including the Texas Medical Center (TMC).
Some facts and figures about TMC:
- It’s the largest medical complex in the world.
- TMC serves 10 million patients a year.
- 180,000+ annual surgeries take place at TMC; one begins every three minutes.
- TMC sees 750,000 ER visits per year.
- TMC delivers one baby every 20 minutes, resulting in approximately 26,280 births per calendar year.
- 13,600+ total heart surgeries have taken place at TMC.
One can only imagine the vast amount of medical supplies that are needed for the largest and one of the most highly renowned medical centers in the world. Not to mention the urgency of the potentially life-saving supplies and equipment doctors and nurses need to serve patients.
Inovatiqa has a large network of suppliers, which allows them to handle domestic emergency orders the same day or next day. In order to get urgent supplies delivered on-time while meeting industry standards, Inovatiqa needed a reliable and professional same-day medical delivery partner for local deliveries.
Dropoff’s platform makes it easy for Inovatiqa to schedule deliveries online. Once an order is picked up, Dropoff’s live map tracking feature allows Inovatiqa and its customers to view real-time tracking information so they know where the orders are at all times. Electronic signature verification and photo proof of delivery also save time and paper resources for Inovatiqa.
“We always have urgent orders for surgeries and other time-sensitive procedures. Being able to ensure our customers that their orders will arrive on-time and in optimal condition is essential in this business,” said Muhammad, the director of operations at Inovatiqa Corporation. “Dropoff’s modern platform makes it tremendously easy to place orders. I also prefer the personal, dedicated experience I get from Dropoff. One of the drivers picks up an order and takes it straight to its destination, unlike other carriers that make multiple stops.”
Dropoff has extensive experience as a medical courier and works with a wide range of healthcare companies on a variety of medical deliveries. Our real-time tracking and signature verifications ensure businesses and their customers are receiving the fastest, safest, and most reliable delivery experience.
