TCGRx, the industry leading supplier of pharmacy automation and workflow solutions, announces the introduction of Beacon Mobile, the latest advancement in the Beacon product line. Beacon Mobile is a handheld device that significantly reduces medication stocking and inventory search time, translating to improved efficiency, and increased accuracy.
With tighter reimbursement and increased regulatory and service requirements, TCG is continually looking for ways to drive greater efficiencies in both labor and inventory. Beacon, TCG’s perpetual inventory management system, is designed to replace or supplement existing systems by providing perpetual inventory with individual package monitoring for quantity, expiration date, and touch frequency. This results in increased inventory turns and lower overall inventory spend.
According to Matt Noffsinger EVP of Sales at TCG, “Beacon Mobile provides even greater efficiencies by allowing users to disengage from a computer terminal in order to stock and search for medications in the Beacon system.” Beacon combines pick-to-light medication storage and retrieval with barcode verification, reducing errors and improving customer satisfaction. The Beacon system utilizes high-density fixtures in order to reduce a pharmacy’s footprint and technicians’ walk and search time. Duane Chudy, CEO of TCGRx commented, “By reducing the pharmacy footprint, we are able to make room for additional consulting, MTM programs, Adherence Packaging, vaccines and other types of value-added programs to increase pharmacy revenue and margins.” Beacon is modular and includes tools for managing will call prescriptions and control medication handling through TCG’s DeliverRx™ and PharmLoc™ technologies.
Beacon Mobile will be available for viewing and demonstration at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Total Store Expo in Denver, Colorado, August 23rd, 2015 through August 25th, 2015, by appointment only.
