The New Internet Supply Chain: Issues for Device and Supply Companies

B2B e-commerce players promised early on to help smaller product companies level the playing field in competing against the entrenched interests of big suppliers and GPOs. But large suppliers with established relationships with GPOs and national distributors are likely to push B2Bs away from creating a more open market.

Transactions 1999: Dealmaking for the New Economy

The number of early-stage deals plummeted as large drug companies fought their way through mergers and other late-stage deals designed to boost near-term earnings. Drug companies also looked to mergers to build up sales forces and, by building bigger-selling products, to compensate for the lack of R&D productivity. Meanwhile, biotechs, with valuations at record levels, looked to find deals that would allow them to keep the upside of their products and move their share prices up.

E-Health's Second Mover Advantage

The revolution that the Internet is bringing to hospital supply is really two revolutions, one transaction-oriented, the other information-based. MedAssets hopes to capitalize on opportunities in the transaction-based realm by, in effect, applying Internet technology to two relatively traditional service businesses, group purchasing, and capital equipment refurbishing and resale. MedChannel, by contrast, is trying to create an infochannel that promotes wide efficiencies across a broadly defined supply chain, from OEM to end user. Both companies face a challenge: that of coming late to a B2B e-commerce market that is evolving rapidly. Their hope: a kind of "Second Mover Advantage", under which the early B2B leaders open doors to customers that both companies can more easily walk through.
