CUBEX LLC appoints inventory automation pioneer Chris Hayden as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO)

PHOENIXSept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CUBEX LLC, the leading provider of pharmacy and supply management technology to the animal health market and dental markets, announced the appointment of Chris Hayden as Chief Revenue Officer. As CRO, overseeing both CUBEX and ZIMBIS, Chris will focus on all aspects of go-to-market plans, from strategy to sales and marketing execution.

Chris brings over 25 years of sales and executive leadership to this new role. With a primary focus in capital medical device and software sales, his particular focus has been in diagnostics and inventory automation. Chris has spent the last 15 years in senior roles with Pyxis, Cardinal Health / Carefusion and BD, while leading the national sales for Pyxis with revenue accountability of $1B. Since 2017, he has overseen BD’s Life Sciences and Diagnostics business for the East Coast accountable for over $600M in Revenue. Prior to that, he spent 4 years at Cerner Corporation overseeing their pharmacy enterprise by managing national sales in the US and Canada, driving a 70% increase in sales during that period through both organic growth and the acquisition of Bridge medical as a tuck in to the product portfolio.

Earlier in Chris’s career, when automated dispensing was still in its relative infancy in the human acute care space, he was hired by Pyxis to help launch the new markets division and drive significant growth in the alternate care marketplace. That experience, and all that has followed, has brought him full circle to CUBEX LLC. “My entire career has been leading up to this moment,” said Chris. “I’ve learned so much about what it takes for leading-edge inventory technology like CUBEX and ZIMBIS to become a standard of care that the majority of the market considers essential. I can’t wait to get started.”

“Chris is without question the perfect person for this role,” said Anton Visser, CEO and Co-Founder of CUBEX. Chris was a colleague of Anton’s at Pyxis during the company’s formative years, and the two have retained a connection throughout their respective careers. “2021 has been our best year to date at CUBEX, and Chris’ senior leadership experience with several multi-national industry leaders, as well as his relentless creativity in developing new revenue streams, are exactly what we need at to continue that success.”

Chris a graduate of Towson University in Towson, MD. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business with a concentration in Marketing. He resides in Middletown, DE with his three daughters, Lauren-16, Avery-14, and Sydney-12, and the most recent addition to the family, a Vizsla puppy named Bruno.  In his free time Chris enjoys boating on the Chesapeake Bay, golfing and of course watching his girls play in their various sporting events.

Enhanced Efficiency Through Inventory Automation

Introduction
Knight Dental Group, a Leixir Group Company, is passionate about providing best-in-class restorations to their clients. As a member of Leixir’s network of dental labs, a prominent focus on advanced technology and digital solutions is at the forefront of delivering highly advanced and quality products.

As dental implant restorations have become more of the norm in recent years, the management of implant inventory has become a priority for dental labs. Knight was determined to find the right solution to their growing implant inventory to securely store, track, and accurately forecast purchasing for these components.

Zimbis proved to be both efficient in the automation of purchasing forecasts and of FDA lot number tracing, as well as providing the ability to securely house materials and ensure they are accurately accounted for and allocated to the correct cases.

Inventory management goals included:
– Reduce excess inventory on-hand
– Reduce labor associated with inventory management
– Improve the efficiency of FDA lot # tracking

The evidence
The Zimbis LabPlus was installed in the implant department in August 2020 to manage these very needs. This case study examines a six-month period ending in March 2021.

Less on-hand inventory equals enhanced cash flow
For the parts managed through Zimbis, the on-hand inventory
decreased by $7,088 or 32%, from $22,000 to $14,912 for the 6-months ending March
2021. These savings directly impacting cash flow in a positive manner.

Material Usage
Nicole Follert, Purchasing Manager at Knight Dental Lab, stated, “We experienced great success in the reporting of used materials and identifying slow moving components allowing us to more accurately forecast purchasing requirements in turn decreasing our spend. We believe the accountability that Zimbis adds to our process plays a big role in that everything is accounted for with steady turnover and less waste and inventory of the slower moving parts.”

Labor savings by time reallocation
As labs are tracking what they use manually, it puts a drain on resources. As a result of Zimbis’ automated processes, Knight Dental Group
eliminated 1-2 hours per day of manual documenting by highly paid technicians. This allowed these technicians to reallocate their focus on essential job duties; completing more complex cases that positively impact revenue.

Automated reporting available from Zimbis also made a significant impact on management’s time as it provides an accurate purchasing forecast based on usage.

FDA compliance improvements
It can be difficult to measure or quantify everything that matters. For example, an extraordinarily positive byproduct of Zimbis solutions is increased efficiency in regulatory compliance.

The automated lot number tracking that the Zimbis plus incorporates not only helps ensure components with lot numbers are accurately logged to each case, it eliminates the need for manual entry of these details into each case. In addition to providing this increase efficiency in lot number tracing, The Zimbis cloud-based software allows for easy reporting on lot numbers both by case and individual lot number, ensuring compliance and accountability.

Does it cost, or does it pay?
Almost immediately, productivity and efficiency improved, and Knight Dental Group saw a significant reduction in on-hand inventory and time spent managing inventory and compliance. Looking purely at labor reallocation savings, the system pays for itself in 3 years.KDG Labor Savings

This study clearly demonstrates the investment in Zimbis led to increased profitability. Additionally, security, accountability, and regulatory compliance proved to be excellent ancillary benefits.

Zimbis introduces all-new line of smart cabinets, the most advanced solution for dental inventory management ever developed

Zimbis introduces all-new line of smart cabinets, the most advanced solution for dental inventory management ever developed

High-capacity storage and security for critical inventory, with automated billing through integration with the most popular management systems.

COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Zimbis, a division of CUBEX, LLC and the leading provider of inventory and medication management technology to the dental health market, recently announced the introduction of an all-new series of Smart Inventory Cabinets for dental professionals which leverages automated dispensing to reduce the cost associated with managing and maintaining supplies. These new smart cabinets feature FDA-compliant safeguards, bi-directional integration with management software systems when needed, and are available through a subscription, with no capital purchase required.

Zimbis 1000 is the first of several new cabinets in this line, the first large-scale inventory management system designed from the ground up with the needs of dental professionals in mind. Smart security measures are placed around critical inventory, while simultaneously making it easier for staff members to get the supplies they need quickly. Zimbis automates the ordering process to the suppliers when items reach reorder levels. All of the benefits in the Zimbis Mini and LabPlus solutions are present, but with a new, higher capacity form factor with much more room for customization.

“Dental professionals have desperately needed inventory management automation for years, but there hasn’t been a cost-effective solution that addressed the unique challenges they face,” said Louis Visser, DDS, Vice President of Zimbis. “The small, high-value parts used by dentists and dental laboratories are difficult to store and effectively manage, which is why we now offer the Zimbis 1000 and its sister products. It’s the highest density storage system available, perfect for dental labs, dental offices and oral surgery practices.”

Zimbis 1000 is available now through a simple monthly subscription. Visit www.Zimbis.com to learn more or call 949-691-4420 to schedule a demo.

Zimbis Smart Inventory Cabinets are highly configurable, with a wide array of compartment sizes to accommodate almost everything in a dental office or laboratory. Doors protect larger items like impression material, alginate, composites and compartmentalized drawers hold other components. Tiny ‘Pico’ compartments – 60 to a drawer – are especially helpful for dispensing burrs, endodontics files, implants and other very small parts common in Dental Health.
