POS is a software based system. And it is working miracles for a wide variety of commercial, retail and industrial businesses. The pharmacy pos system is quite literally a self-help plugin system for the small to medium-sized retail pharmacist who just happens to own and run his own store, usually to all hours of the night in order to cater towards local consumer demands and, more importantly perhaps, emergencies.
More advanced POS systems are in place to cater for those specialist pharmacists who now have a lot more on their plates in terms of developing new medications that are going to shake the apple trees of the world. Specialist IT technicians are standing by to be of help in any which way they can. Of course they can assist the local corner shop retail pharmacist as well. Much larger franchised pharmaceuticals should, by now, be having a field day with this system.
They are not necessarily exploiting the ready markets at their disposal but they are at least taking full advantage of the system. The system being the pharmacy pos system. They can be using this system in in so many different ways, far too many to be squeezed into this short, introductory note. But it can at least provide the first-time reader with at least one or two pointers before this article closes out. The reader could be a retail pharmacist himself.
Or she could be a customer, a little old lady who needs her next order of chronic medication as soon as possible. As soon as possible because she does not get it on time, she might not make it to tomorrow morning. That is also how the specialist retail pharmacy POS system is designed to work, responding to requests or orders ASAP.
