Tired of manually comparing supplies costs?
The average practice wastes 4+ weeks of labor and $20K+ each year due to inefficiencies in the procurement process.
Manual Data Entry
Comparing product costs between multiple suppliers is laborious and difficult, requiring complex Excel spreadsheets and a math degree.
Even when a better price is found, negotiating with suppliers on price, quantity, and terms results in wasted time and frustration.
Surprise Price Increases
Often even suppliers you trust unexpectedly raise prices on items you purchase without informing you. You end up overpaying, often grossly, and find out too late to do anything about it.
Reports come weeks after invoices, making it hard to catch errors or understand the health of the business. Understanding savings and impact to the practice in real time would lead to a more transparent and efficient operation.
Dental supply chain technology is too complex and too expensive
Most applications take dozens of hours to set up and are complex to use.
Current solutions have upfront setup fees, high monthly costs, and demand long term contracts.
Why wait months? Just upload your product list, and realize immediate savings up to 40%, in supplies costs and data entry expenses.

Watch quotes come in and start saving!
Why should I sign up? I feel I already get good prices.
Suppliers typically raise MSRPs and only lower prices on packaged deals. Your bottom line savings will still be significant when there are other suppliers in competition. Having a range of suppliers helps not only reduce costs, but also reduce risk in case of shortages.
Can we buy items directly on the website?
Currently, base86 brings customers and suppliers together and customers directly purchase items from the suppliers. However, all the information regarding products, prices and quantities will be provided by base86.
What services do you provide?
Our services include but are not limited to:
We already have staff that do the work of searching for suppliers, how does base86 help us?
Staff deeply dislike work involving manual data entry and could certainly do better with a tool like base86 in lieu of complicated Excel sheets.
What is the cost of the service?
The cost is $149/month, and base86 guarantees that it will provide at least the equivalent of the cost in annual savings. An average organization saves $11,000 per year! We also provide a 1 month free trial to help you get used to the platform and see the benefits firsthand!
Why should we use base86 over other platforms such as Net32?
Net32 is an ecommerce website. base86 is a procurement platform. The difference? In one word, data. base86 leverages data in order to provide contextual and actionable insights for dental practices. This allows to make many manual processes a lot easier, such as:
How are orders sent to suppliers and is there a guarantee they will process my order?
You will see the catalog of products and send the supplier a “Request for Quote” after you decide which products you want and the projected annual quantity. The relevant suppliers will get back to you with a competitive, personalized quote.
How can we be sure the new suppliers we sign up with won’t just raise prices after we switch to them?
As with anything of this nature, there is no sure way to know where the relationship with a particular supplier will go. However, base86 thoroughly vets suppliers on its platform, and provides dental practices with tools to prevent bait and switch behavior. For example, alerting functionality for price changes will provide actionable data for dental offices, so they can focus on doing dental work, not paperwork.
