5 Reasons Why A Good Pharmacy POS System Should Scale With Your Business

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Feb 22, 2018 @ 07:00 AM

There are many reasons why electronic cash register systems went out of vogue: compliance with more regulatory changes than one can easily count, the need for active inventory management, FSA card acceptance, reliable sales monitoring, the list goes on.

What about scalability though? Did that make the list when you purchased your last point-of-sale system? Or is your current solution just as inflexible as the most basic of cash registers?

If you haven't given the scalability of your POS system much consideration, it's time to start. If you still need some convincing, here are some key points to keep in mind.

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Feb 15, 2018 @ 09:20 AM

Keeping up with everything is no easy task. There always seems to be something we get behind on. For me, one of the first things I do when I'm busy is set aside articles that I want to read, thinking that I'll get to them later. But sometimes, no matter what my intentions are, I don't quite get there.By the time I get around to catching up, months have gone by and there's something new in my in box to look at.

5 Data Points About Your Pharmacy You Need to Know

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Jan 18, 2018 @ 07:00 AM

The quote "knowledge is power" has become a well-known saying since its origins in the 1500's (or maybe earlier depending on who you ask). Although somewhat cliché, it's certainly a truth that needs to be considered. Especially when it comes to our businesses. The simple fact is, the more you know about your pharmacy business, the more power you have to influence a positive change and succeed.  

You probably have a baseline for how your pharmacy operates. You know about how many cashiers and pharmacy technicians you need to staff each day. You know an average number of prescriptions you fill each day, and how much money your pharmacy earned each year. But it takes more than that to really see where any business is on a larger scale.

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Jan 11, 2018 @ 08:39 AM

RMS_POS_tipsforahealthierpharmacy.jpgA new year often means a renewed focus on health and wellness. Health related resolutions top the list of most common goals in the US and there are countless articles to be found on how to make healthy changes in your life. 

But while I was skimming articles on drinking more water and the benefits of getting enough sleep, I couldn't help thinking that some of the same logic we use to build healthier versions of ourselves could be applied to building a "healthier" pharmacy.

Time to Refresh Your Password Policy for a Secure Pharmacy in 2018

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Jan 04, 2018 @ 07:00 AM

With a New Year comes the thought of new goals and fresh starts.  But we also get a lot of looking back - the best movies, most popular songs, biggest games. You name it, there's probably a "Best of 2017" list for it.  

Most of these lists probably aren't that helpful outside of keeping up with popular culture. However, there is one that deserves our attention each year. Only, it's not so much a "Best of", but more a "Worst of".

Pharmacies - Check Out Our List of The Newest Point-of-Sale Features

Posted by Mike Gross on Thu, Dec 28, 2017 @ 07:00 AM

It’s been a fantastic, but busy year here at RMS in 2017.  Not only did we have another incredible year bringing on a ton of new customers, but our development team has hyper focused on delivering some of the most innovative pharmacy point-of-sale features in the industry.  As the marketing guy for RMS, we advertise throughout the year announcing these new products and services, but rarely are they ever compiled in one location, so I want to change that. 

Our development team works with their heads down, toiling day after day fixing bugs, creating enhancements, and building out new features that our customers, new and old, enjoy year after year.  It’s high time we give them some kudos and highlight just some of their efforts, so here’s a short list of a few of the bigger projects they completed this year.
