Case study: DM Orthotics

Taking traceability a step further, beyond simply meeting regulatory compliance

GS1 standards have enabled DM Orthotics to make improvements to their business processes throughout their entire order and production systems. And, meet Unique Device Identification regulations in the US and the UK.

DM Orthotics Ltd is a world leader in the design and manufacture of Dynamic Movement Orthoses, providing to over 25 countries.

DM Orthotics’ ordering and manufacturing processes were paper-based and required substantial time and effort in manually keying and rekeying data into multiple systems. Inaccuracies of information and varying types of external order numbers, meant that orders were difficult to keep track of and manage.

By working with GS1 UK, DM Orthotics have:

  • Reduced the amount of time spent by staff processing orders
  • Less rekeying of order information onto different systems
  • A marked improvement in efficiency
  • Accurate product and order information
  • Improved staff training

I am confident that DM Orthotics will meet all of the regulations in the US (for UDI) and the UK (for the NHS), and thanks to GS1 standards, our business is set-up in the best possible way for the future.”
