HAPPY CUSTOMERS

"VMC pricing has saved us money which has strengthened our business. The knowledgeable staff are awesome at answering questions no matter how big or small. The transparency with data and organization of information has made our lives so much easier."

Shonara Awad
Owner, Life Pharmacy

"VMC knows what’s important to pharmacy; High Sales and gross profit with low overhead. Reports sent out on a regular basis have helped us manage our returns, out of dates and rebates."

Shannon Pruett
Pharmacy Director, Pruett’s Food

"The VMC Pharmacy Program has been a great success for our company.  We have been able to implement it with very little disruption in daily operation for our staff.  Along with the decreased cost of goods and increased rebates, the program has partnered with many companies to offer discounted services, which we have taken advantage of.  I appreciate the increased reporting and data sharing from VMC which allows us to identify areas where we excel and address areas that warrant improvement."
