Simon Jersey seamlessly supply National blood with an innovative fabric choice for healthcare uniforms; worn by 2,000+ people each year, using an Electronic Data Interchange system. We have designed a brand-new uniform for national blood donation teams working on behalf of NHS Blood & Transplant working collaboratively with senior management we developed a tunic in a teal colourway, using an innovative new fabric choice. It is being rolled out to donor carers in a bid to make it easier for donors to differentiate between them and nursing staff. The fabric we have chosen is more comfortable and lighter in weight than traditional Healthcare tunics.
Importantly, while the fabric is less heavy than standard material the finished tunics are still washable at 60 degrees, infection control compliant and guaranteed to last for at least two years. The new tunic that we’ve designed makes donor carers easy to recognise, yet the whole team looks unified as we supply them embroidered with the NHS Blood & Transplant Service logo. Using EDI technology, Simon Jersey and National Blood also virtually interact with each other, eliminating paper trails and improving operational efficiency for uniforms ordering, with digital transfers of purchase orders, invoices and payments making uniform ordering a seamless process.
EDI reduces ordering errors, reduced levels of man power needed to process large quantity orders, and the ability to automate product, embroidery and delivery notices, keeping National blood up to date throughout the uniform ordering process. The automated invoice system works in various ways e.g. by consolidating a Purchase Order, with details to line and product. If the values match the automated Purchase Order, then it is automatically authorised and sent for authorisation of payment. If any queries occur with an invoice, the EDI system will automatically forward this onto the Simon Jersey accounts team, to be resolved.
