Supply groups are a special type of workspace in Slope designed to allow tracking of inventory not associated with a single sponsor or clinical trial. Some examples are:
- Bulk supplies
- Office Supplies
- Shared supplies
- Shared dietary supplies
- Shared snacks for patients
- Equipment to track calibration or certification dates
Supply groups have all of the same alert features and inventory tracking as clinical trials, so you'll receive emails and alerts if anything expires or has a low inventory. They are a great way to segment your inventory in situations where a clinical trial or single-sponsor context doesn't make sense.
