Implementing Mobile Point-of-Sale in a Retail Pharmacy Environment

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Jan 17, 2019 @ 07:00 AM

Last week we took a look back at the very beginning of the mobile trend in pharmacy point-of-sale. And many of our regular blog readers thought "So what?". If you aren't operating an outpatient pharmacy, how does all that really apply if you aren't trying to run a meds-to-beds program?

As we learned very early on with the release of our EvolutionPOS register, mobile technology didn't just solve a big problem for outpatient pharmacies. It also filled gaps for independent and independent chain pharmacies across the country. In fact, independent pharmacies were some of the first customers to implement mobile technology, taking "cutting edge technology" to a whole new level.

Over the years, we've seen RMS customers use EvolutionPOS and the EvolutionPOSV2 Tablet in many different ways. Here are some of our favorite uses for mobile technology in a retail landscape.

Driving Sales in Your Outpatient Pharmacy with Mobile Point-of-Sale Technology

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Jan 10, 2019 @ 07:00 AM

In 2011, pharmacy point-of-sale looked a bit different. There were lots of different options for software functionality, but the general footprint for all systems was pretty much the same. PC, monitor, receipt printer, barcode scanner, signature pad, cash drawer, fingerprint reader and maybe a customer display thrown in. If you wanted to shrink down the footprint or do something different, an all in one system was used to eliminate some of the hardware needs.

Starting Off the New Year Right in Retail

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Jan 03, 2019 @ 07:00 AM

New Years is generally a time of resolutions and fresh starts. A time for stifling bad habits and creating better ones. It's a really nice concept but we also know that wiping the slate clean isn't reality. And would we really want to even if we could? 

Hopefully in the last year, you saw some successes and positive changes in your pharmacy business. But you might have also hit a few hurdles, had a few false starts or even hit a brick wall or two. And that's okay. Those failures (and successes) are all just history and that it's time to learn from and use as you move forward. 

So how do you put together the ideas you have for the future and all of your business history to create a cohesive business plan for 2019 filled with achievable goals? It's not a simple question but you might be surprised at just how simple finding the answers can be with the right point-of-sale data.

Pharmacies: What to do with the last 3 weeks of the year

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Dec 06, 2018 @ 07:00 AM

Yes, you read that title right. We're closing in on the last few weeks of 2018. Well 3 weeks and some change, but we'll round down to allow for at least a few days where we'll hopefully all be munching on cookies and celebrating the season.

And yes, I really do mean that there are a few extra things you can get done before the year end. But don't worry, they won't cut into time set aside for attending holiday parties or spending time with family.

Reasons Pharmacies Should Participate in Small Business Saturday (And How to Make the Most of it!)

Posted by Karen Deckard on Thu, Nov 08, 2018 @ 07:00 AM

The calendar doesn't change. There are 12 months in a year, and 2 of those months are always spent in a flurry of holiday and year end activity. It doesn't seem to matter how much we think about preparing for it. No sooner has the Halloween sugar rush wears off, we're jolted again by the sudden flip of the calendar into November. Thanksgiving month. The month of family gatherings, too much food, and of course the holiday retail marathon that starts on Black Friday.

Outside of any deals you intend to nab on Black Friday, the day won't likely matter too much to you from a business perspective. In fact, it might even be a bit slower than normal for retail pharmacies open on November 23rd. Black Friday is a day for retail giants with huge marketing budgets and margins big enough that price slashing won't hurt their bottom line.

But black Friday isn't the be all, end all of holiday shopping. Instead, focus your efforts for kicking off the holiday shopping season on Small Business Saturday.

Originally launched in 2010 by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a nationwide event that gains support and momentum every year. If you aren't quite convinced that Small Business Saturday is for you, here are a few helpful facts about the holiday shopping season to help.
