“We’ve been able to free up space with the RxSafe in our pharmacy. It’s freed up areas that we use for bubble packing, compounding and convenience packaging that we do for our long-term care and assisted living faciltiies.”
I would absolutely purchase the RxSafe again. It does exactly what I was told it would do, and the support has been phenomenal!
We’ve increased our business by over 60% in the past year. We haven’t had to hire anybody to complete the filling process. It has really affected our profit margin because it has freed up our time and allowed us to work on and focus on projects and areas that are very profitable for our pharmacy.
We’ve experienced improved efficiency in our pharmacy through pairing RxSafe and ScriptPro automation. Inventory management, accuracy and productivity are at their highest levels and we now have one less full-time technician.
I think the most important capability is speed and accuracy. It allows 1 person to fill a multitude of prescriptions quickly and accurately. With the RxSafe it finds it very quickly and brings the correct drug every single time to the operator.
“The ability for it to pull products correctly no matter where they are is so important. We used to have problems locating products daily – now the RxSafe locates them immediately.”
Paw Paw Village introduced the RxSafe 1800 two tower system in one of our 6 stores a year ago. We’ve seen the cost of generics increase the cost of on-hand inventory by an average of $30k in all of our stores except the one with the RxSafe. That store has actually seen a $50k decrease in on-hand inventory costs. This totals $80k in savings attributed to the RxSafe. We’ve also seen our inventory turns increase from 17 turns per year to 23+ turns per year. In addition, we’ve been able to reduce our labor costs by an average of 200 to 250 labor hours per month, which basically covered the payment on the unit. Therefore in four years that labor savings will go directly to cash flow.
“I’ve seen improvement in several areas of the pharmacy since we introduced the RxSafe. Productivity has increased, inventory control has improved, we’ve saved money on labor and our accuracy is exceptional.” With RxSafe, accountability is built in to the prescription processing workflow. We don’t have concerns about accuracy or diversion since we added it to our pharmacy – those have been eliminated.”
What we liked about RxSafe vs the competitors was the speed of the device and the security of how it stores the medications. We just felt that that combination of speed and security was the right for our volume.
Pioneer & RxSafe work great together. The perpetual inventory ensures that you know exactly what you have in stock at all times.
