4 Reasons Why You Need More Control Over Your Inventory

Jada Lewis, CVT Aug 23, 2016 2:13:55 PM

Controlling inventory is an essential and crucial part to the success or failure of many veterinary practices. The good news is that there are solutions to help manage and control inventory.

If you are not beginning to use a system that includes technology, you might already be behind the curve. The latest integration between Smart Flow, Cubex and your practice management system could be the very thing that saves your clinic.

Here are 4 reasons why you need inventory control (using Smart Flow and Cubex).
Your are missing something

No matter how meticulous or anal retentive you are, you will miss charges and inventory count. No system without technology can be 100% accurate.

We get so busy with clients, employee drama and distracting patients that everyone is bound to make a mistake (or two). By combining the Smart Flow Patient Management System and Cubex, you will see tremendous results with improved charges and inventory handling.

It is costly

After wages, inventory is the next largest expense for any clinic and cannot be ignored. It is also a target point for profits and losses. Sometimes you have to spend money to save a lot of money.

The good news is that the Smart Flow and Cubex integration system addresses this exact problem and is cost effective for general practices and ER clinics alike. Click here for more information on how the system works.

Embezzlement

cubex We’d like to think that this wouldn’t happen in our clinic. The truth is that it happens more than we’d like to believe. While our controlled drugs needs to be locked up, we have tendency to leave the key in the lock or not really have it well guarded.

When you add a system like Cubex to the mix, then thieves have less options. Your controlled drugs are locked, logged and under much tighter control.

Nothing is getting cheaper
When it comes to running a veterinary clinic, rarely does the price of anything decrease. Most clinics cannot afford a large discrepancy between profit and losses, yet we can easily lose 15% just in missed charges alone. Most clinics have vast room for improvement in this area as we cannot rely on the cost of any type of inventory to decrease.

In the end, software technology is becoming increasingly effective and necessary in order to maintain and increase profits. Tighter control and understanding of your inventory is very important in creating a profitable and successful veterinary clinic.
