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.
Unlike other pharmacy automation, the RxSafe 1800 is cash flow positive in the first year.
RxSafe’s Data Rich Interchange
Technology sets RxSafe apart.
One of our most recent developments is the DRI™, the first-of-its-kind, message initiation “data rich interchange” for the retail pharmacy market. This protocol is essential for real workflow, providing pharmacy management with a complete suite of reports at their fingertips. The DRI is an integral part of every RxSafe product, making it a unique offering in pharmacy management software. With the development of the DRI, pharmacy workflow becomes even more robust and streamlined than ever before.
RxSafe is CII Compliant
RxSafe is first and foremost a safe. Overriding the system requires two different keys. Access to CII’s for normal prescription filling requires the operator to have the proper credential and biometrically login. Every touch of the container is tracked and recorded to the operator from original stock replenishment until the container is discarded. RxSafe has a rich reporting suite of software, including CII logging.
The return on investment (ROI) from the RxSafe 1800 can be realized in several different ways with this game-changing automation in your pharmacy.
So, how does the ROI break down?
Accuracy & Speed: A single filling tech at the RxSafe 1800 system can fill up to 120 scripts per hour with unparalleled accuracy. Less fill labor + less put away labor + no searching for lost items, means you’ll spend less.
Space Savings: A 2-tower RxSafe 1800 system can hold up to 3600 stock bottles in only 30 sq. ft. freeing up over 100 sq. ft. for other revenue increasing activities. More floor space = more revenue.
Narcotics Security: The RxSafe 1800 system is double key locked. Access to all drugs requires biometric access. Every container “touch” is tracked. No loss due to theft or diversion means more profit.
Inventory Management: RxSafe is the only secured and monitored pharmacy robotic inventory management system on the market. Real perpetual inventory data can be exported. Up to 30% less on hand inventory, plus less waste due to expired drugs…so you’ll spend less and see more profit.
Annual Savings = $75,000
+ One-Time Inventory Reduction Savings =$40,000
+ One-Time IRS Section 179 Savings = $38,000
Total 1st Year Savings = $153,000
In the first year, generate more cash than an RxSafe 1800 costs.

Total Cash Surplus
Over 6 Years: $368K*
IRS Section 179 allows business to take accelerated depreciation on capital equipment of up to $500,000 per year. The initial (year-1) savings on installing an RxSafe system can be significant. For example, depending on whether they lease or purchase equipment, our customers have reported cash savings ranging from $37,000 to $127,000 in their first tax year.
The savings don’t stop there, however. Combining continued tax savings, along with the ROI savings from pharmacy automation, RxSafe customers report 6-year savings ranging from $368,000 to $382,000 — that’s more than three times the original cost of the equipment! Lease or purchase, any way you slice it, RxSafe can put cash back into your pharmacy’s register!
