CarePlus Pharmacy, Ireland’s fastest growing brand in the pharmacy sector, is delighted to announce the launch of the CarePlus App, allows customers to look up advice on a range of health topics, locate their nearest CarePlus pharmacy, order prescriptions and avail of special offers, on any mobile device.
A highlight of the CarePlus app is the ‘order your prescription’ feature, a quick, easy and convenient service allowing customers to order their prescription without having to go to their pharmacy first. It’s easy to use – customers can download the app, select their local CarePlus Pharmacy, take a picture of the requested prescription with any notes for the pharmacist, and the prescription will be processed by CarePlus. When it’s ready for collection, an alert will be sent, saving customers valuable time.
It’s not only super convenient for the customer, the CarePlus pharmacist benefits too as it allows them be as prompt as possible in the preparation of medicines for their customer. It also frees up time to spend with patients when they come to collect their medicine. Commenting on the new app Mullingar CarePlus owner John Keane, who has trialled the service in three pharmacies, says “The app and the prescription ordering facility definitely offers something different for my customers. Being able to order a prescription by simply sending a photo is convenient for my patients and that’s what we want – to provide an excellent level of customer service”.
It also allows new customers to order a prescription even if they haven’t been to the pharmacy before and although the prescription is required for collection, it will remain on file so they can simply call ahead next time it’s needed.
Sue O’Grady, Head of Marketing for CarePlus Pharmacy said, “CarePlus pharmacy is dedicated to providing our customers with not only the best pharmacy experience in store, but by being digitally proactive and embracing technology, we can offer our customers improved convenience. Currently over 70% of the Irish population have smart phones so providing our customers with the ‘order your prescription’ feature shows the commitment CarePlus has to providing our customers with a hassle-free service”.
CarePlus will continue to develop the app for customers over the coming months, adding more functions, including a body mass index calculator.
The app can be downloaded for free from the Play Store and ITunes today.
