Small-object counting done by hand is quite a tedious activity, especially when it regards counting medicines, for which you need a lot of concentration and precision. Unfortunately, because I have a small pharmacy, I need to do it every day. I opened the pharmacy fairly recently and it is not yet fully automated, so I have to do activities such as pill counting manually, in case of which I find it simply impossible to avoid mistakes, and whenever I make one I need to start all over again. This can continue forever! Therefore, some time ago I started wondering if I could invest some money to buy a good pill counter which would make my work a bit more pleasant and less tedious. I checked my options and learned that there are actually many possibilities. I knew that pill counters are generally used in pharmacies but I hadn’t realised that there is such a wide variety of types available on the market. Counting performed on these machines is really exact and fast, user-friendly software offers various possibilities and I strongly believe that using a pill counter could improve my work and increase productivity. Yet, I have a problem with selecting the right model for my needs. My pharmacy is now just a small local one and I reckon I don’t have to decide on a cutting-edge technology pill counter as a great deal of its functions would not be useful for at least next few months, or even years; however, getting a basic counter for general use doesn’t seem to be enough for me when it comes to my long-term pharmacy development plans. I haven’t decided yet, but I’ll need to decide on something soon because I just don’t want to count the pills by hand much longer.
