Medical service provider restores vision in communities across Mexico

salauno works to give all Mexicans the chance to see well and improve their lives with the help of NetSuite

SuiteConnect, MEXICO CITY — October 8, 2019

Salauno, a nonprofit focused on delivering visual health services, is using Oracle NetSuite to support its mission of providing high-quality, accessible eye care services to all of Mexico. With NetSuite, salauno has been able to focus time and resources on its mission by increasing supply chain efficiency and gaining a single view of the financial data of its entire organization.

Founded in 2011, the company has performed more than 35,000 surgeries that have restored vision and provided low-cost and quality ophthalmologic care, including treatments like cataract surgery and diabetic retinopathy, to more than 300,000 patients. To ensure that its team can stay focused on their mission and reach more communities, salauno needed a unified business platform that could optimize its supply chain and financial management operations.

"In Mexico, only a third of the people who require visual correction seek treatment and this includes more than nine million who suffer from cataracts. We wanted to change that situation," said Javier Okhuysen, co-founder and director of salauno. "By providing valuable real-time information about our business, NetSuite has enabled us to streamline operations and drastically reduce costs. Which, in turn, allows us to help more people and offer new essential services to the community."

With NetSuite, salauno has been able to take advantage of a single platform to run its core business processes, including accounting, inventory management and sales. This has helped salauno increase the efficiencies across its business and offer its services at a cost up to 60 percent less than that of other ophthalmological centers. NetSuite will also help support salauno's rapid expansion plans to reach 60 new clinics and four new surgical centers throughout Mexico by 2021.

"It's amazing to see how many people in Mexico have fallen victim to unnecessary blindness," said Gustavo Moussalli, LAD senior director, Oracle NetSuite. "We are proud to support an organization like salauno that is helping restore the visual health of people across the country."

NetSuite supports more than 1,500 nonprofit organizations and social enterprises globally. salauno is currently benefiting from SuiteDonation. Part of the NetSuite Social Impact program, SuiteDonation helps nonprofits benefit from the power of technology by providing discounted licensing.

salauno’s mission will be showcased at SuiteConnect Mexico City. Attendees will have the chance to meet members of the salauno team and hear firsthand how the organization is changing visual health by providing high quality, low cost treatments. Attendees will also be able to test their eyesight with interactive colored lenses that reveal fun facts and images in the process.
