Bar coding

Bar Coding

Right from a small single user practice to the larger multi–practitioner store bar coding has a significant role to play. The major reason is that in any practice the largest single investment made is stock. To know how much money you have invested on your floor and to control the capital expenditure is in itself difficult. The solution however is a bar coding system.

  • Tracks every item in your practice and provides accurate stock reports.
  • Reduces the time taken for stock takes from days to hours if not minutes.
  • Reduces user error in that the codes interface from quotes through to invoicing to credit notes and are either taken out or brought into stock accordingly.
  • Users merely have to scan the item in and no longer have to type stock and or tariff codes.
  • Barcodes are automatically generated if required when you generate goods received vouchers

Bar coding has many more benefits than a manual or alphanumeric system and it is also very cost effective. Stock takes are done in less time than you imagine, allowing you to concentrate on your patient while our program looks after your stock.

We systematically improve profit potential by ensuring claims are submitted and collected in time. Immediate account production and levy collection reduces operational costs.
