Manage stock and pricing

Purchase Invoice Processing (PIP) is an exciting new service available through VetSCOPE. PIP gives you full access to wholesalers’ price lists and allows you to order stock through any VetSCOPE computer in your network.

PIP makes ordering of stock and non-stock items simple and straightforward. Once your order is complete the system will inform you, in real time, as to how much of it can be fulfilled.

The system also enables you to download an invoice for this order which can be imported immediately into VetSCOPE. With PIP the days of manual entry of stock quantities, batch numbers, expiry dates and pricing are over.

PIP’s automated and accurate data will cut the time needed to manage stock, freeing up staff resources to be used where you need them most in your practice.

  • Order Online – Create your order in PIP and send it electronically to your supplier

  • Confirm delivery – Immediate order acknowledgement confirms delivery times and highlights shortages

  • Update your VetSCOPE price list – PIP always contains your suppliers’ current pricing which can be passed through to the retail price, keeping the stock in hand at the optimum profit level

  • Download and review wholesaler invoices – This includes pricing, stock quantities, batch and expiry dates

“Reviewing cost price increases used to take me a couple of hours each week, I can now do this in confidence in minutes. Having the system fully integrated means that the majority of our purchase invoices are now entered automatically.”

Gerry O'Dowd, O’Dowd Veterinary Hospital, Ardee and Dunleer, Co. Louth

“The hours we spend inputting supplier invoices from our main wholesaler can now be put to much better use. Our weekly schedule now has so much extra capacity that we can invest better in customer relationships through herd health schemes and marketing strategies. VetSCOPE has proven, yet again, that they are an invaluable member of our team.”
