We are joining the Pharmacy Future Agreement as a partner.

Pharmacies provide basic medical care available to the public. Apostore is fully aware of the significance and understands the current concerns and challenges of the pharmacy market. In order to strengthen the bond with traditional pharmacies, we will join the Pharmacy Future Initiative. At Expopharm 2019 in Düsseldorf, the parties announced that Apostore will be partner for digital solutions for the Pharmacy Future Initiative as of 1 October 2019.

The Pharmacy Future Initiative was set up by Noweda Apothekergenossenschaft eG and Hubert Burda Media Kommanditgesellschaft. The objective is the sustainable growth for local pharmacies.

“We are pleased to have attracted a new partner in Apostore, a specialist in digital solutions for traditional pharmacies. Their experience will provide valuable input for the Pharmacy Future Initiative”,

says Dr. Michael P. Kuck, Chairman of the Board of Noweda Apothekergenossenschaft eG.

As a result of our experience of 20 years in digital solutions for this industry, we can contribute with our know-how towards meeting the needs of customers and providing support for pharmacies,

says Christian Bauer, Managing Director of Apostore GmbH. He believes in the value of traditional pharmacies.

As a developer of automated solutions for the healthcare sector, we contribute to securing the nationwide stock of over-the-counter pharmacies. The aim of the cooperation is to develop digital solutions for customer retention and the improvement of customer service. Among other things, the cooperation offers potential for additional development of the pharmacy's own online platform “IhreApotheken.de”. For example, it is possible to install 24/7 terminals or self-service terminals for customers. This Apostore solution is one of the highlights at our stand during the Expopharm.

Other aspects of the Future Initiative include, among other things, the pharmacy customer magazine “My Life” and the health platform “mylife.de”. We want to support and reinforce the position and future of pharmacies in cooperation with the other network partners. Our solutions allow us to focus on improving customer service, expanding services and developing new business models.
