SET OUT ON A BETTER BUYING PATH
WITH PURCHASING MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
LEVERAGE INTERNAL AUDITING to confirm that your staff are purchasing items based on vendor and DSCSA compliance, rebates and the like. Identify instances where a user has opted out of a SureCost-recommended item, why and the costs subsequently incurred.
SureCost Purchasing Management software unifies purchasing and inventory, so you can optimize your buying decisions and discover money-saving opportunities using your entire vendor and wholesaler catalogue. Our software works with all major wholesalers—as well as with the vast majority of secondary providers, GPOs and other pharmaceutical sources. It increases time and money savings by allowing your pharmacy to:
STOP SHOPPING AROUND. View all of your vendors’ pricing in one place. No more wasting time price-shopping and looking through multiple platforms and catalogs.
GET A CLEAR PRICING PICTURE. With SureCost, you know exactly what you’re paying for up front. The product pricing displayed on our platform includes rebates and marketshare rebates alike, so you can maximize your rebate program. Identify additional savings opportunities, like lower prices available from secondary vendors.
STAY COMPLIANT with contracts and agreements using the Primary Vendor Assurance Tool.
ENSURE that you pay only “agreed-upon” prices for products received. Track vendor discrepancies at each purchasing stage. Pinpoint the cost of vendor substitutions and avoid paying more for substituted items.
CONTROL SOURCING. The option to purchase from your primary vendor and from secondary vendors yields enhanced visibility into more favorable prices —in turn cutting costs.

STREAMLINE DSCSA COMPLIANCE
WITH DSCSA COMPLIANCE SOFTWARE
Unlike many other solutions of its type, SureCost DSCSA Compliance software simplifies and fully supports compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), increasing the convenience of managing DSCSA-relevant data and making it easy to maintain vendor accountability. It provides:
JUST ONE INTERFACE AND SOURCE OF DATA for all trading partners, as required under all DSCSA. Easily tap into data and reports (including transaction information, transaction statement received and transaction history) that can help when fielding requests from or audits by manufacturers, the FDA and other authorities. Check the reconciliation page for lists of flagged products and reconciliation options.
TRANSFER MANAGEMENT CAPABILITY. Check the DSCSA compliance of items sent from one of your locations to another—and avoid fees and penalties if you’re audited for compliance with the rule.
THE POWER OF MOBILE AND MULTI-TASKING. Capture necessary DSCSA data as you utilize the mobile app to scan 2D barcodes on incoming items and request, fill and receive inventory transfers.
FLAGGING FUNCTIONALITY. Products are automatically flagged for quarantine if traceable transaction identifiers scanned at the receiving stage don't match trading partners’ shipping data.
