Advantages of The Masterstock system.
Cost Savings to a Group.
Excess stock is excess debt. Stock holding levels can be reduced to considerably lower levels than previously possible, accurate reports will provide details of what is in stock, not what was sold. This allows pharmacies to reduce the amount of capital drawn by overstocking products, offering an opportunity to considerably improve cash flow. For example, one recent stock take in a small pharmacy highlighted over €2K of overstocked product which the Pharmacist was able to return immediately. What would an immediate 10% lowering of your overall stock do for your cash flow?
Labour costs are reduced in store by allowing staff the ability to access to stock levels from their workstations. This removes the need for staff to manually assess stock quantities on the shelves before ordering or answering customer queries on stock availability. This reduces accidental stockpiling because of poor warehousing. What would two hours labour a day for each store save across your group?
Shrinkage can be individually identified on a product-by-product basis. This will identify the extent of theft or the level of incorrect billing or deliveries.
The overstocking of perishable products will be reduced resulting in less wastage of stock. An instant low-cost solution is offered to pharmacies. No capital investment is required as Masterstock supply the handheld technology and software required.

Historically, stock was counted and at the end of count and then loaded onto a software package. This can lead to considerable errors, as usually there are sales taking place during this process. The Masterstock solution eliminates this type of error as the Pharmacy Dispensing/Epos system is updated as each product is counted live.
Total Independence and minimal disruption is offered to the Pharmacy in terms of operation and sales. Staff will only be required to enter deliveries, returns and sales, this minimizes their opportunities to manipulate end of period stock reports.
