Pros

Fast system after a steep learning curve. Does perform all functions required to run a pharmacy. Once accustomed to screen layout it is easy to track information. Customer support seems very helpful and has good availability.

Cons

System has a very steep learning curve and is not intuitive in the slightest. Performing functions from start to finish is purely memorization as there is little indication on screen how to proceed. When a script goes to error status it simply disappears off the screen, leaving the user to have to search for each rx in error. Labels can be forced at anytime and are sometimes required to be forced in order to proceed, this leads to confusion about whether the third party payment has occurred or not, sometimes leading a script to leave the pharmacy without being paid for.

Comments

"I am new to this software having inherited it from the previous owner of a business that I purchased. The previous user did not seem to use many of the features available on HBS. My experience so far has been frustrating as there is often times no intuitive course of action for the many situations that occur during script filling."

Wholesaler - McKesson Corp.

Pros

The windows based software is very easy to learn and use. The user can tailor functionality to the pharmacy needs. Customer service usually very good. Overall reliability and speed is also very good.

Cons

The software has optional workflow and auto refill capabilities which are helpful; however, they are a little cumbersome.

Comments

"Overall I have been extremely happy with the software and HBS. I am not "looking" to change systems. This system is great for any smaller independent pharmacy. Thanks! "

Pros

This system is very easy to use and self explanatory.New employees never have a problem picking up this system.

Cons

Some glitches with third party billing at times.Not always a system problem but when insurances tell you this and then we have to readjust HBS is always there to walk us through.

Comments

"All in all this is a very good system. The customer service is very helpful. Anything new that comes our way they are always willing to help out."

Pros

It is easy to use. Good processes. It is ok for compounding. Helpful with invoicing.

Cons

Not windows based. Process doesn't always make sense. Difficult reports.

Comments

"I wish there were easier reports for financials. Sometimes I wonder if there is an easier way to do what we do. Customer service is usually helpful. It is a Linux system and has a good firewall."

Pros

Don't really have experience with other software to compare it to. So the most significant Pro is the fact that we have used for a while now. Everybody is adequately trained on system, and we are efficient with it.

Cons

I've been told that the newer systems can do so much more. We have considered upgrading in the past. Have to keep up with technology nowadays.

Comments

"As mentioned above....havn't worked on a newer system, so can't explain if ours is better or worse. Definitely would love to upgrade and see what more modern software is capable of."
