Features

  • Comprehensive medication inventory management of the entire pharmacy, including bulk storage, IV room, refrigerated cases, satellite pharmacies, and other remote storage locations.

  • Verifies all transactions, including receiving, stocking, order processing, returns, and order verification.
  • Efficiently integrates return items to stock.
  • Intelligent Order Routing, an optional feature for high-speed packager users, selects the optimal picking location based on user-defined settings.
