The healthcare sector in India faces scattered and unorganised distribution, with limited distributors capable of offering services across multiple cities and states.
This gap in the market presented an opportunity for a technologically advanced and process-driven PAN India distributor to provide high-quality services and supplies to hospitals and nursing homes nationwide.
Pentawis Innovations Pvt Ltd was formed to fulfil this need and deliver exceptional services to healthcare facilities across India.
Since its inception, the fundamental values of Trust, Accountability, Consistency, and Honesty have been the guiding principles of Pentawis’ operations and interactions with clients and stakeholders.
In the healthcare sector, a significant challenge arises from customers prioritising small cost savings over receiving below-average services.
Recognising this ongoing challenge, Pentawis Innovations consistently engages with customers, emphasising the value of consistent and dependable services over short-term cost savings.
Another challenge stems from a lack of awareness among mid-sized and small hospitals regarding the benefits of a robust supply chain and streamlined purchase process.
Pentawis actively collaborates with the management and doctors of these hospitals to raise awareness and promote the long-term advantages of efficient supply chain processes.
Being a process-driven organisation supported by a team of skilled and trained personnel aligned with the company’s vision and dedicated to its mission sets Pentawis apart in the industry.
By setting clear goals and promoting constant communication and transparency with the staff, the company encourages teamwork while maintaining a healthy work environment.
Pentawis values positive feedback and rewards the team for their contributions while providing growth opportunities for employee development and giving them the space, they need to thrive.
The company sets a high standard in delivering quality services, with a Mantra of “Customer First”, which ensures a competitive advantage.
Success for Pentawis’ team is defined by their ability to establish, maintain, and expand strong relationships with customers with their commitment to delivering consistent quality services and achieving consistent year-on-year growth for nine consecutive years, marking their biggest achievements to date.
Throughout its journey, the company has conducted business ethically and legally while fulfilling commitments to all stakeholders, including suppliers, customers, and shareholders. Mr Sham shares,
Over the years, Pentawis Innovations Pvt Ltd has achieved several recognitions and milestones, including
PAN India distributor for Manipal Hospital Group
PAN India Distributor for Cloud Nine Hospital Group
Expanded associations and secured new contracts with companies like Tynor and TZMO Group (SENI_BELLA) based on performance.
With a constant feedback mechanism involving all stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, employees, and larger industry players, Pentawis keeps track of the latest developments in the market.
Additionally, their open-minded approach to actively seeking and learning about innovations and advancements in the healthcare industry has proven beneficial over the years for the firm.
The healthcare sector is undergoing major transformation and consolidation, with major mergers and acquisitions reshaping the landscape as hospitals strive for a pan-India presence beyond city or town limitations.
Technological advancements are also driving significant changes, particularly in the streamlining and consolidation of supply chains and logistics.
Recognising this, Pentawis plans to position itself as a key player in this evolving industry landscape, focusing on these areas of transformation.
At present, the company’s most important endeavour is the launch of selected products under its brand, AROSAFE. This initiative is being facilitated through Pentawis’ sister company, Aroved Healthcare Pvt Ltd.
Leveraging the existing platform, relationships, and network of channel partners developed by Pentawis; the company aims to successfully introduce and establish the AROSAFE brand in the market in the coming years.
Advising young entrepreneurs, Mr Sham K R shares, “In the healthcare industry, perseverance, adaptability, and consistent performance are essential.
Although a challenging and capital-intensive sector, the growth potential in healthcare is immense. Stay dedicated, embrace technological advancements, and seize the opportunities this industry offers.”
