  2. Click on “PIMS Link: None” (this indicates that the item needs to be linked to a PIMS product)

3. Search for the PIMS product and select the link button:

4. Choose the Unit of Measure you track this item by in your PIMS and then select update

5. Once your items are linked to a PIMS product, the updates will be reflected in your cart to display the PIMS product that the item is linked to:

Method 2: Linking Vetcove Items to PIMS Products within the PIMS Integration page

Hiding Items

If you wish to not link a specific item - you may also hide any unlinked items within you PIMS integration that you would not like to appear in your lists.

1. Head to to the PIMS Integration page - Products page

2. Click on the Actions button, located to the right of each item

3. Select "Hide this Item." This will hide the item from view and move it to a Hidden Items folder, located on the lefthand side of the page. This will prevent the item from showing up in your Critical Shortage Lists, as well.

From within the Hidden Items folder, you may move a hidden item back into view with the rest of your items.

  1. Click on the Action button

  2. Select "Show this item."

Step 3: Shop on Vetcove through your Neo Lists

Once a Neo product has been linked to their corresponding Vetcove items, you may view and shop items straight from the Lists page based on reorder points. To shop an item that is included in a Neo list (Ex. Critical Shortages list) just click on the Show Items button. 

The item listings will then drop down in the familiar Vetcove shopping format. Using the purchase quantity suggested (based on the optimal quantity entered on Neo for that item) you may then add items to your vendor carts straight from here, just as normal!

Step 4: Shop and Place Orders as Normal

Now, when you place an order on Vetcove it will automatically be sent as a PO to Neo! Do keep in mind that your Neo inventory will automatically be synced to Vetcove roughly every 6 hours; however, you may always trigger a manual sync from either the Lists or Products tabs on the Vetcove PIMS page to bring in the latest inventory counts before shopping.
