You might look at this and say, “Oh it’s easy to use the Cubex Q-Bud system to check items out, but surely it is going to require a lot of manual entry to get the items into the software.” The answer to that question: “It is simple to use and will make your life easier.”
The system makes the recommended order, and the individual who is ordering the animal health products approves the order. Once the order is approved, the Cubex Q-Bud system then automatically enters all items into the farm’s mwianimalhealth.com shopping cart. The product order is transmitted to MWI, product is pulled from the closest MWI warehouse and is then delivered next day.
Once the product arrives, the individual who is responsible for restocking the shelves enters the Cubex Q-Bud room and logs into the Cubex Q-Bud software with his/her fingerprint. The individual selects “Restock” on the computer screen and selects the Purchase Order that is related to the product delivered. Once this is done, the system lists everything the farm received. The individual verifies the order, accepts the PO into the system, and restocks the shelves with the product in its designated spot. The Cubex Q-Bud system has just been restocked and is now ready for use.
I have heard people say, “Well it’s a neat system but it probably won’t work at my facility.” I then ask these questions: “Do you use animal health products? Do you have a room where you store those animal health products? Do you dislike running out of product? Would you like to automate your current manual process?” If they answer “yes” to these questions, then Cubex Q-Bud is a great solution.
It’s easy to get started. We need a list of products you are currently using and a maximum number and a minimum number you want on hand for each item. We can adjust these numbers anytime. We evaluate your current medicine room and gather some employee information. An install usually takes place a couple of weeks after we receive back the product list. We work with the people who will be accessing the medicine room to organize it in a way that is comfortable for them. We install the hardware and computer. We cycle count all product into the Cubex Q-Bud system and finish with training. The install team is usually on site for a day and a half. The entire process is painless.
