Pharmacists are currently operating under a great deal of pressure. With the NHS cuts currently squeezing smaller pharmacists and revenues from prescriptions not looking as strong as they once did. This economic strain has required Pharmacists to adapt their way of thinking and move towards a digital transformation. We can all agree that Pharmacists are the backbone of community healthcare. However, if they don’t start introducing innovative strategies to combat this growing pressure we may witness Pharmacies closing across the country.
Technology advancements have without a doubt, played a considerable role in boosting pharmacy profitability; reducing costs, improving cash flow and helping maximise sales where possible. Pharmacists that have welcomed a digital transformation such as an EPOS solution have been provided with a greater deal of insight into their customer needs, helping them anticipate product demand and this capitalise. Multiple features such as rate of sale are so clearly explained there isn’t a reliance on walking the shop floor and checking what stock is remaining. It will also help with ranging and merchandising decisions so you can optimise shelf layout and ensure you have the right mix of products for your customers – and your bottom line.
