InventoryRx ™ - Inventory Control & Management


Visual Pharmacy Plus software has powerful inventory control features and we managed to make it even more effortless by utilizing the latest portable technology to perform physical inventory and cycle counting easy and fast.
We offer Real time inventory control systems that use wireless, mobile terminals or Data Capture devices to record and verify inventory. In a wireless scanner setting, the inventory scanned is securely transmitted to the central pharmacy database where it is instantly analyzed and compared to the previous inventory and the correct physical inventory is recorded, an exception audit log is generated for shortages or shrinkages.

Consider the benefits of having an inventory solution where, with the use of bar code scanners, your inventory tracking approaches 100% accuracy. Experience shows that the time and money saved by having an accurate inventory system will dramatically affect your bottom line.

Abacus Rx provides an efficient and cost-effective method for taking physical inventory counts using mobile computers, including PDAs and PDTs, to scan barcodes and collect information. IntelliTrack Inventory tracks inventory to a location, tracks lots and expiration dates, and automates inventory reconciliation. IntelliTrack software contains user-customizable fields, which allow the user to specify the naming of each field to fit the terminology of their business, to generate user-customized reports, and to log into history the receipt and movement of inventory .


Accurate inventory control can increase your cash flow and profit while reducing the amount of inventory you need to carry in your pharmacy. Password protected features and reporting capabilities can help minimize theft and give you accurate inventory counts. Abacus can support most all major wholesalers and can provide cost comparisons between them.


The inventory control feature allows you to set up automatic reorder stocking levels, generate purchase orders and send them electronically to a wholesaler. When an incoming order is processed it updates quantity-on-hand, and the actual acquisition costs. Your financial reports will accurately reflect your true costs, which can be seen on each prescription as you fill it.

100% Interface to Visual Pharmacy Plus
Our "active" flag allows you to select which drug items will be displayed on a drug look-up. Only those drugs marked as "active" will come up. When an ordered drug is received in inventory it will automatically be logged as an active drug. The program will also alert you if the drug you are trying to refill is not in stock so you may select an alternative drug.

During the filling of any prescription, a warning message will appear if the Quantity-On-Hand level is too low to fill the prescription, allowing you to order the item at that time without leaving the fill screen.
