Even though some people like to believe supply chain issues are waning, it is still causing strife among businesses. And some PE Firms are still looking for businesses that will help solve for such issues. Philadelphia-based LLR Partners is trying to do its part.

LLR, a middle market private equity firm focused on technology and healthcare markets, has invested in Vantage Point Logistics, a provider of supply chain management software to improve the resiliency and visibility of clinical supply chains for healthcare firms. The investment is intended to support product development, organic growth, and further M&A transactions.

“Provider consolidation, shifts in site of care, and heightened focus on expense management have caused healthcare organizations to increasingly adopt technology solutions to drive clinical efficiency and savings,” says Zack Sigal, a partner at LLR. “We’re excited to partner with VPL as they support more healthcare organizations to deliver more efficient care.”

The investment comes at a time when change has shaken up the healthcare market. The industry is still reeling from the pandemic; and provider consolidation, shifts in the site of care, and an increased focus on expense management are causing firms to change.

Businesses are seeing the need to install new technologies and services that drive clinical efficiency and cost savings. VPL’s service offering provides coordination and collaboration between the different levels of the healthcare supply chain.

With supply chain services being a hot commodity, it appears that the healthcare industry is yet another among others that are seeing investor attention. Have you seen any other markets desperately in need of supply chain enhancements? Let me know at [email protected]
