Finding the best way to count pills can be difficult, because it's a process that is very important. Here's what you should look for in a pill counter:
Accuracy: It may seem obvious, but a pill counter needs to be accurate. Having a pill over, or a pill under may not seem like a whole lot, but it can really add up. Fast: While being accurate is important, a pill counter should certainly not take very long to register the amount of pills counted. In order to be effective, it needs to cut time from the traditional methods and be much faster. Secure: The counters need to have a secure login system so that not just anybody can use the expensive, valuable, and critical equipment.
Build: Make sure the pill counter you choose isn't cheaply made of plastic or other easily broken materials. Many pill counters are made with metal or aluminum framing that holds up much better than plastic. Affordable: Having snazzy things that do everything you want them to do and then some are nice, but there are plenty of choices when it comes to pill counting. Find a pill counter that does everything you need it to, and that won't put a huge dent in your wallet. There are plenty of affordable options that can likely do everything you need, and are fairly affordable.
These are the five main elements to deciding what pill counter is right for you. It's a big decision, so choose wisely, and make sure that whatever pill counter you choose fills all of these criteria.

It is worth taking a moment to examine what these changes will mean to the pharmacy trade.
