It’s out with Microsoft Dynamics RMS and in with the new!

Twenty years is an absolute lifetime in terms of today’s modern technology and in this article we look at the ‘end of life’ for this highly successful point of sale software. But as the clock ticks away, retailers must move to a new solution before the July 2021 deadline.

As long ago as 2015, Microsoft announced that their retail point of sale solution, or Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System to give it its correct title, would be retiring in 2016. However, whilst the product was then no longer available to new customers, support continues for existing customers until July 2021.

One of the biggest concerns of any aspiring retailer is stock control. Not enough stock results in unhappy customers and missed opportunities. Too much stock takes up too much capital and can result in lower margins if you mark down unsold products.

The Steps Your Pharmacy Business Needs To Take To Become FMD Complaint

FMD compliant

The Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD), which requires all EU pharmacies to be able to scan 2D data matrix barcodes, use integrated software to verify and decommission medicines from those barcodes and check medicine packaging for tampering is in effect from the 9th of February 2019.

The new standard of packaging, alongside the new audit trail, has been created by the EU with the intention of reducing the number of counterfeit medicines on the market and decreasing the associated health risks.

However, legal compliance is compulsory for all pharmacy owners.

Here are our tips to becoming FMD compliant:

Here are some of the factors you should account for:
