GPS - Inventory Control

Pharmacy Inventory Control Made Easy

The GPS inventory control and purchase order system is a real-time perpetual inventory system.  It provides for the generation and submission of electronic purchase orders to a drug wholesaler system and accepts a response back from the wholesaler system.

You can selectively use these inventory functions on some drug items or manage your entire inventory with them.

Purchase order systems serve 3 major purposes:

  1. Manage vendor purchases
  2. Maximize your payment terms
  3. Provide purchase accountability and audit trail


Inventory management systems let you:

  • Utilize “just-in-time” purchase of drugs
  • Maximize inventory turn-over ratio
  • Maximize cash flow
