Customizable decimal places/rounder per clinic

Steps to reproduce:
 
1.Check the medication's quantity in Smartflow-report (there are 0.63 and 0.52) & Smartflow-interface.
 
2.Check the calculations of the medications for the mentioned treatments within Smartflow-panel (there are 0.627 and 0.5225).
 
3.Check the medication's quantity in ezyVet-report (there are 0.627 and 0.5225) & ezyVet-interface.
 
4.Check the medication's quantity in "Vet S8" (as there are 0.627 and 0.5225).
 
5.Try to find an option on Smartflow-interface that allows to select a way of changing the rounding so that the real calculated amount (not just the one shown on the tabs) is only 2 decimal places - e.g. instead of 0.643 the dose has 0.64.
 
Actual result:
 
Step 1: 0.63 and 0.52
Step 2: 0.627 and 0.5225
Step 3: 0.627 and 0.5225
Step 4: 0.627 and 0.5225

*So, there are two separate dosing values given for the same medications on the same patients;
1)on the display panel of the flowsheets and anesthetic sheets, which are rounded up.
2) on the calculations panel of the medications (and this value Smartflow passes to "ezyVet" & "Vet S8") which have the decimal points indicated.
 
Step 5
a) Smartflow issue: there's no such an option in Smartflow-interface that allows to select a way of changing the rounding so that the real calculated amount (not just the one shown on the tabs) has only 2 decimal places - e.g. instead of 0.643 the dose has 0.64 (or instead of 0.678 gets places as 0.68). 
b) Smartflow/ "ezyVet" integration issue: this option should allow the user to send to "ezyVet" & "Vet S8" the medication's quantity as being displayed in Smartflow reports.
 
Expected result:
 
Step 1: 0.63 and 0.52
Step 2: 0.63 and 0.52
Step 3: 0.63 and 0.52
Step 4: 0.63 and 0.52

Step 5
a) There is the option in Smartflow-interface that allows to select a way of changing the rounding so that the real calculated amount of the medication (not just the one shown on the tabs) has only 2 decimal places - e.g. instead of 0.643 the dose looks like 0.64 (or instead of 0.678 gets places as 0.68). 
b) This option allows the user to send to "ezyVet" & "Vet S8" the medication's quantity as it is displayed in Smartflow reports.

So, there is a way to have  the displayed dose (in Smarflow and ezyVet) and the dose in the calculation within Smartflow-section to be the same.
 
 
Customer impact:

There's some feedback:
 
1) from CSM: "it does not make sense to have two separate values of the same medication as some staff will work off the does on the flowsheet/ anaesthetic sheet and other staff will use the dosing off the calculation section with the multiple decimal points."
 
2) from our clinic: "so, there's no consistency between  Smartflow and ezyVet interfaces"
