Pharmacy Show 2014

Pharmacy Show

Having already signed up for next years show we thought it was an apt time to reflect on the success of this year. With 7000+ attendees the show saw it’s largest footfall to date. But was it successful?

We attend the Pharmacy Show every year at the NEC and always showcase something new. We try new things to engage with potential customers and generate interest. All relating to our Methasoft LITE system which is aimed at making pharmacists lives simpler by automating Methadone dispensing and record keeping.

What was special about this year?

1. Innovation of our Products – What’s New?
This year’s Pharmacy Show saw the unveiling of the Methasoft Corporate Dashboard. Methasoft is a rental system which is very competitively priced. As such, it is used widely by independent’s and large multiple pharmacies alike. For groups, the Corporate Dashboard provides a powerful tool and visibility across your Methadone service. It adds further time saving by providing data directly to your PC or tablet from each site using Methasoft. The Corporate Dashboard can pull information from Methasoft’s vast database which offers a broad range of reporting to help you run your service efficiently.

2. Getting Hands On
The Pharmacy Show gives potential customers the opportunity to get their hands on the system and try it out.  This year we found there was an increasing amount of interest and most stand visitors requested a demo.  Many were also particularly complimentary about the ease of use of Methasoft.  We are confident that Methasoft is easy to use and will save you a significant amount of time.  We even provide a free-trial in your pharmacy to prove it to you. Use our Calculator to see how much time you can save.

3. Making the Switch
We saw a number of potential customers at the Pharmacy Show, who are using competitor systems and manual dosing, making enquiries.  They had heard of Methasoft and were eager to find out about its ease of use, its reliability and ongoing support service. Customers renting Methasoft are trained at installation.  Once installed any problems, however small, can be reported to our friendly service desk.  We will respond and resolve the issue either remotely or on-site if required.  In terms of reliability Methasoft has been in use since 2005 and is the longest standing provider of automated dispensing systems in the UK.

4. Try, Try and Try Again
We attend the show every year.  Each year we try something new to engage with potential customers and generate interest in our stand.  This year we were giving away an iPad Mini to customers who visited the stand.  This years prize was awarded to John at Focus Chemist in Rochester.  I am sorry if you didn’t win but thank you very much for visiting the stand and entering our competition.

5. Proof is in the Pudding
Of course, the real success of the Pharmacy Show will be measures in the coming month’s.  We have already had enquiries following the show for customer requesting a free trial of Methasoft in their store.  To register for your free trial simply get in touch.
