Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
In Italy the health system is mostly managed by the Ministry of Health and it is very important to know the dynamics of tenders and how to approach the different stakeholders like private and public system doctors, administrative departments and companies that don’t use the e-commerce. The company has an after-sale department that ensures a punctual service to the end-users. The company would be open to improve the business focalizing its distribution service to a single brand or product. The products to be distributed in the Italian market should have at least two of these features: uniqueness, competitive price, market demand capable of supporting the business. Drugs and consumable products with high volume and/or forecast supplying (for example gloves, gauzes, syringes, plasters, towels, medical hand instruments, …) or big equipment (for example laser, computerized axial tomography, robotics, furniture, …) are not taken into consideration at the moment.
