It simplifies workflows in the pharmacy considerably. The prescription is registered by the ERP system when scanned and forwarded directly to the storage system. The medication is output directly to the sales counter. That means the pharmacy team does not need to print the prescription, have a tablet handy, or make a note of the prescription to be able to collect it from the drawers. The patented collection management system reserves the medication in the storage system if it has been ordered in advance. The advantage: up-to-date inventory at all times and no additional working steps.

Digital OTC displays make it possible to appeal to customers emotionally and individually. As soon as they enter the pharmacy, the customers have the sensation of a modern shopping experience and feel at ease right away. We differentiate between solutions that are placed in the sales area and those for discreet advice.

At present, self-checkout solutions are more common in standard retail situations. However, self-checkout solutions are also becoming a viable option for more and more pharmacies. This is linked on the one hand to the ever-expanding OTS range that pharmacy customers can pay for directly at the terminal. On the other hand, pharmacies are also increasingly introducing information terminals and focusing at the sales counter and in the OTS area exclusively on advising and assisting customers. This allows them to transfer the payment process for all items to the self-checkout terminal with ease.

The BD Rowa™ Pickup is connected to the order picking system in the pharmacy. The customers can collect their preordered and prepaid goods at the terminal using a collection code without standing in line at the sales counter. This allows the pharmacy team to dedicate more time to helping new customers.

Our service agreement covers all services and technical updates. The response time on site is less than four hours.
