Our Story

SureCost founder and Chief Product Officer, Calvin Hunsicker ran his own pharmacy business before launching SureCost. He understands how frustrating it is to lose time and potential savings because of the complex pharmacy purchasing environment. Our team of professionals, with over a century of pharmacy experience, support over 5,000 pharmacy professionals across the country who manage their purchasing and inventory through SureCost. Each year, customers save an average of 2-5%, or more, on their cost of goods. Our software pays for itself and puts money back into your pharmacy business. Recent annual purchases via SureCost accounted for over 8.5 billion dollars of the total US pharmaceutical drug spend. That’s why SureCost exists. To empower pharmacies across the country to securely and easily save more, stay compliant and work smarter.

About SureCost

What's SureCost? SureCost isn't a shopping site. We're the Smarter Purchasing SolutionTM that fully integrates with your current pharmacy management system. But unlike your pharmacy's purchasing management system, with SureCost, you shop and upload purchase orders for multiple vendors through a single interface, gain enhanced reporting tools to control and analyze costs, steer volume based on your pharmacy’s goals and increase your team's efficiency with SureCost. Despite the challenges facing pharmacies, decreasing profit margins, brand inflation, generic deflation on cost of goods and more, there’s good news. SureCost helps you harness smarter purchasing strategies to pass on savings to your patients, digitize your purchasing and inventory management process and ultimately make data-driven purchasing decisions and increase efficiencies so that cash flows and profit margins increase. 

We recognize that some pharmacy staff may see 'automation' and hear 'replacement.' But automated purchasing doesn’t replace jobs, it actually makes jobs easier. Automated purchasing is a dynamic aspect of your purchasing strategy that reflects your operations and goals. So what does purchasing automation look like with SureCost, the smarter purchasing software? SureCost is the missing piece that connects your pharmacy management system with your entire catalog of vendors, while empowering your team with smarter purchasing and inventory management in one simple and smarter solution. Here's one example of smarter purchasing with SureCost: rebates. Like most pharmacies, you probably buy NDCs or items through your source program and get a rebate every month. But you may not have a way to track it. SureCost takes everything into consideration and validates that your reimbursement is accurate. Without those configurations set in SureCost, how do you really know your rebates shouldn't be higher? Smarter rebates is just one of the cost savings SureCost provides that adds up to 6x to 30x ROI for our customers. Watch our product video to learn more.
