IQware attends Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing's (ECRM) Pharmacy Services

ECRMThanks to the referral by Tom Coughlin, former CEO of Wal-Mart, we were given the opportunity to attend ECRM's Pharmacy Services, Technology and Automation Trade Show in Atlanta on November 1st through the 3rd. ECRM is based in Solon, Ohio and produces unique trade shows that allow a vendor to have multiple one on one meetings with buyers from retail operations around the country and Canada. ECRM is one of the most service driven organizations we have ever encountered. We met with 36 companies representing over 15,000 retail pharmacies. We have agreed to schedule full online demos of the IQware MTM system with each of them so they can include other members of their organizations. Of those companies 35 confirmed their frustration with their current Pharmacy Management System (PMS) and the alternatives available on the market. They all understood the value of a Pharmacy Management System being developed on the IQware architecture with its capability, flexibility and security. They are all looking for a better long-term solution. All agreed that the window of opportunity is the next 18 to 24 months and showed interest in the IQware approach to this solution. One of the major points of interest was the shelf life of any program developed on the IQware architecture and its built-in security.
