A national pharmacy with over 300 brick-and-mortar locations was looking for a robust digital solution that would provide omnichannel integration, eCommerce, and health regulation compliance.

As Amazon makes inroads into pharmacies, pharmacies are compelled to find sophisticated digital experiences to compete. Object Edge has worked with a leading national pharmacy company to drive their eCommerce enablement. In order to drive successful implementation, Object Edge had to address pain points specific to pharmacies, including complex customer views, varied prescription pricing, and legal requirements.

The Challenge

  • Each retail franchisee needed the flexibility to define their own inventory, price, and catalog
  • Complex customer profiles with patient information, and including statutory requirements
  • Order placement online, fulfillment through retail location
