BoxPicker is part of an end-to-end solution of Swisslog equipment and software that controls medication management from wholesaler to patient. With this goods-to-person system, operators have access to only a single box at a time, thus eliminating picking errors. Scan-in/scan-out technology further increases safety during dispensing, while providing inventory tracking. Additionally, pharmacies can achieve higher hourly throughput and productivity with picking performance that’s three-to-one when compared to pharmacy carousels.

Unlike other vertical storage systems, BoxPicker expands as pharmacy storage needs change. Configurations maximize available space and provide additional picking bays so operators can work simultaneously. The system also provides storage and pass-through capabilities for cleanrooms, removing the need to enter ante rooms to deliver stock.

The optional narcotics module ensures the security of controlled substances and facilitates compliance with regulatory requirements. Narcotics are stored separately from other medications in secure, tamper-proof modules that can only be accessed by authorized users.
