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.
Now I have the peace of mind of knowing the patient received the drug they’re supposed to be getting. With RxSafe there is no room for mistakes so accuracy, efficiency and productivity are at their highest levels.
Space available for us to work in has been increased because storage space for the drugs is all in the RxSafe and that frees up a lot of space around it for us to work. We’ve been able to add a very good will call system that wasn’t available before because of space constraints.
Our inventory is always accurate and therefore what we order is always accurate.
We introduced the RxSafe 1800 into one of our pharmacies two years ago. That store had a $50,000 decrease, which totals $80,000 in savings and our inventory turns have increased by 6+ turns / year. Additionally, we’ve reduced labor costs by 200–250 labor hours per month, which covered the payment on the unit. In three years that labor savings will go directly to our bottom line. The cost of on-hand inventory in our other stores, without the RxSafe, has increased by $30,000.
Datarithm’s reporting (Inventory List) ensures our order points are on the cheapest drug in a generic group.
Pioneer & RxSafe work together well and definitely make my job/our lives easier.
Pioneer & RxSafe work great together. The perpetual inventory ensures that you know exactly what you have in stock at all times.
The RxASP is the best pharmacy automation I’ve seen – it’s more scalable, there are fewer errors and it will handle larger pills than the competition.
Controlled substance security is greatly enhanced with the machine. I was broken into 3 weeks ago and they didn’t get anything out of the RxSafe.
