PharmaGo – currently a free app that lives on Google’s Android Play and iOS App Store – helps to deliver drugs in just one hour, depending on the length between the drugstore and the consumer.
The platform transfers client requirements uploaded via the smartphone straight to the Pharmacy Panel, which can only be accessed by a prescription pharmacist. This protects the security and discretion of information. Credit or debit card products and the submission of direct medical assistance are processed.
The initial collaboration between PharmaGo, established as an aggregator and not a medical supplier, is a countrywide 73-strong pharmaceutical network with exclusive, free supplies within a 20-50-km radius, depending on the place. A national facility provides delivery in around one day to locations outside the network.
“We’ve already seen the power – and necessity – of PharmaGo in our initial launch phase,” said founder Raees Carim.
“We’ve received urgent orders and have been able to facilitate delivery within the same day. It’s gratifying to be able to help people access medication when they need it, in a convenient and secure way – while also being able to deliver daily essentials to customers without them needing to leave the house”.
Carim seeks to extend the pharmaceutical supply network to improve the country’s service.
“We’re looking to expand into deliveries of products beyond the pharmaceutical space, and so are going to be expanding into the health, wellness, and beauty space,” he said.
