Stop Needlessly Throwing Away your Old Pharmacy POS Systems!

Posted by Mike Gross on Thu, Mar 01, 2018 @ 07:00 AM

We see this too often.  A new pharmacy system comes onto the market, or your pharmacy changes ownership, or in last week's most recent example, one pharmacy system vendor just purchased another pharmacy system vendor.  As the market changes, or as your PMS needs change, just know there is only one POS vendor that can interface to over 30 different pharmacy management systems

With last week's latest merger, not only did we interface with the "old" system, but our customers can now easily migrate to the "new" system, and with a simple call to our tech support, we'll switch over the interface. This will save them literally thousands of dollars!

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.
