|Lifechek Selects Activant as POS Vendor||| Print ||
Lifechek Drug, an independent pharmacy chain with 23 locations throughout Texas, will be using the Activant Eagle point-of-sale system (POS) for its front-store automation. To date the chain has focused on prescription sales, with only four of its locations having retail front-store space. Lifechek management decided earlier this year to expand its retail offerings in all 23 stores. Because retail had not previously been a point of emphasis, the company had been using the POS system that came with its pharmacy management system, but determined that it would not be sufficient to manage its expanding multistore retail requirements. With the addition of retail space and inventory, the company realized that it will dramatically increase its inventory costs.
“The Eagle purchasing and receiving system will help us streamline our reordering process and simplify the job of keeping our inventory updated,” says Bruce Gingrich, CEO of Lifechek. He also sees the system’s inventory controls helping in price updates and loss prevention.
