What are the main advantages of a standalone system?
FMD process through PMR Screens can be time consuming over a standalone solution. Work flow suitability – you have the flexibility to place your scanner in an area which is best suited to your premises. For example it may be better situated near your bagging/checking area. Therefore, FMD Connect can combine all the legislative steps in one area, once stock has been picked and placed in the basket for final checking. Stand alone is also particularly interesting for those who have a Wholesale Distribution Authorisation (WDA), as this function is included for pharmacy WDA holders within the FMD Connect program.
Not for Warehouse’s Or Wholesalers who provide data volume.
Is the FMD Connect a wireless system any plugs needed?
The tablets need a power supply, it’s recommended to have a plug socket or extension. Battery life is lengthy but depending on the level of use it’s preferable to have plugged in (either plug via extension lead or extra-long micro USB lead for ease). The tablets have got WiFi capabilities for those that have it, we supply a Ethernet USB adapter for those who hardware into routers AND we have some customers who have chosen to run a 4g data cards within the Tablets. Many flexible options are available to aid work flow in any branch design.
How long once ordered will it arrive?
Delivery within 7 days of purchase and invoice completion. SecurMed are running at approx 2 weeks for the Onboarding process currently- but as part of our service we manage this for you regardless (included with in our prices)
If we choose not to purchase the Windows 10 tablet, can we install the software onto our computer or must it be a specific type of device?
Yes you can. We will establish the spec of the chosen hardware and provide a suitable download. However, you lose the benefits of the work flow studies we have done and are not able to carry out FMD process in the best location. They will also need to screen change in and out of the PMR screen – which defeats the benefits of Stand Alone. You would need to check with your PMR provider they allow software to be added to the PC as through testing we have found that screen switching in and out of the PMR main page, costs in time and effort- hence our tablet option. Minimum tech spec is preferably windows 10 onwards and to have Team Viewer installed so our support team can access and help should they need to. The chosen hardware must also have a USB port to plug the scanner into. (Android and iPad tabs are not suitable)
