Frequently asked questions

Does the A1000 fit into my place?

The Apostore A-series machines are designed to fit your spatial requirements exactly. Thanks to a high degree of customisation, we can also redesign wall projections and chimneys, but also integrate outputs at almost any point. We do not ignore future developments and plan the machine to be sufficiently large for the future of your pharmacy right from the start.

How many packages can I store?

It depends on the size in which we can design and build your new Apostore machine. Also, your packages make a big difference. We will gladly carry out a detailed stock analysis with your data to obtain the most accurate possible information about the capacity of the desired machine.

What jobs will the A1000 do for me?

The A1000 makes everyday processes in your pharmacy easier. It handles the stocking of goods, general warehouse maintenance and processing of returns. There is no need to walk to the drawers or to search for and sort medicines. This saves you valuable time for your customer service.
