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:

Managing your "Critical Shortage List":

To make ordering even easier, you can now view your on hand, minimum, and maximum inventory counts for each PIMS product, within Vetcove.

  • If a product's bar appears green, thats an indication that your current on-hand inventory count is above your set minimum.

  • If a product's bar appears red, this is an indication that your current on-hand inventory count is below your set minimum. If product bar is red, the product will appear in your Critical Shortage list. This is an indication that your clinic is low on stock, and reorder is required.

Your minimum and maximum quantity values for each PIMS product are set within your PIMS and then pulled into Vetcove. For assistance on setting up your minimum and maximum quantities values, please contact your PIMS support team.
