How to...

Setup Dispense Integration with DispenseWorks, LOTS, or Minfos

Open your Settings.

Select Dispense Integration.

Select your dispense software from the Dispense Software dropdown menu.

Note: If you use Dispense Works, first try the “DispenseWorks (o)” option and then continue with the following steps. If the connection is not successful, then try the “DispenseWorks (np)” option.

If you DO know the name of your dispense server computer:

Input the name of the dispense server computer into the Server Name field and then click Save and Close. If you’re successful, you’ll see a message saying “Dispense Connection Successful!”, and your dispense integration setup is complete.

If you DO NOT know the name of your dispense server computer:

  1. Open up a File Explorer window (the shortcut for this to hold the Windows logo button on your keyboard and then press the “E” key).
  2. Click on the option called Network on the left-hand menu of the File Explorer window, which should show you all the names of all the computers on your network.
  3. The name of your server will be on this list. Most often it will have “server” in its name, or at least will stand out from most of the options available. Once you have the name of your server, follow the instructions in the previous section above to input this into Quda.

If you can’t find the name of your server, or you run into issues with setting this up, OR you just don’t feel confident doing this yourself, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can do this for you remotely.

Once you’ve successfully setup your dispense integration on one computer, you won’t ever have to do this again unless there is a change to your server.

When you install Quda onto a new computer, it will inherit the integration settings automatically when you first login, and if you already had Quda running on another computer during the integration setup process, all you need to do is close and reopen Quda and the new settings will synchronise across.

However, you do need to head to Settings > Terminal Settings in Quda on every computer in your pharmacy and ensure you activate both Speed Scan Order and Speed Scan SMS if you would like these functions to be available on that specific computer.
