The medicine stores are looking for opportunities to improve their daily operations efficiencies, increase sales and profit as well as reduce loss. An Inventory management system is a system that automates all the processes involved in inventory management. These system are a vital part of any successful business and is basically used to efficiently track inventory using both hardware and software tools. The objective of this work is to design, model as well as implement an Online Inventory and Order Management System (OIOMS) for pharmacy that would have the capability to automate all the processes of the medicine stores. Most of the pharmacies in our country do not have an inventory management system. They are doing manual paper works for inventory management. A very few of them are using a basic inventory management system. In our research, we have found that the previous system has many desirable and undesirable attributes. We have explored valuable experience regarding inventory system of a pharmacy which has been applied to develop our system. Inventory management is a very challenging problem for a pharmacy. With this challenge the objective of this project is to develop a responsive web application which will provides a platform like Software as a Service (SaaS) for pharmacy operations. The aim of this web application is to provide the basic tool for tracking as well as monitoring sales and inventory to individuals and small businesses who cannot afford the investment of a complete dedicated IMS. A client application called web browser, gives the ability to the customer to access our web application securely over the Internet through the available networks. Thus, our application will be accessible from all devices like PC, Laptop, Tab and Mobile etc. PHP, Bootstrap, JQuery, AJAX and MySQL are used to develop our system to make it responsive as well as very user friendly and effective inventory management system. The result and expected output of this work is to provide basic functions like a secure registration and login system, inventory, users, orders, suppliers, customers, history-logs and company configuration modules. In addition to that, there will be more advanced functions such as automatic email notification, order generation, export reports to PDF file and a lot more. Finally, our web application (OIOMS) replaces existing systems as well as reduces loss and increases profit of any pharmacy store.
