It's Easy Being Green
If you have multiple stores, using a software program like Supplylogix is a no-brainer. The software automatically taps into your computerized inventory and usage at all your stores and then, for each store, populates suggested inventory transfer to use up the ‘crumbs.’ If you have a 100-count bottle with 10 left in it, you can transfer it to a store that will actually use the drug.
