Retail Merchandiser - November/December 2017 - 81

Benzer Pharmacy
Customers have increasingly turned
to Benzer because they want the feel
of a mom-and-pop store with the support of a larger organization. Benzer
is working to introduce its philosophy
to a larger customer base and has set
a goal for 200 company-owned stores
and 100 franchisees by the end of

in new investors.
Shatanoff, an accomplished CFO
with experience in turning around

we put a line in the sand and said,
'Here's what we're doing.'"
Within a few months, Shatanoff
spearheaded programs to change the
company's account practices, banking
structure and to get all locations on
the same POS system. Rx30, a retail
management system tailored to pharmacies, has already been put in place at
30 locations, allowing stores across the
country to access and refill a patient's
prescription instead of having to enter
the information manually.
Working with Benzer's IT department, Shatanoff developed systems for
accounts receivable, tracking claims
and reducing backlog. He also formed
a three-person team to handle collections, which has reduced the company's past-due accounts payable by
$2 million in only four months, and
