Digital transformation starts at the very top

Digital Platform for Pharmacists

The Challenge

Due to the ever-growing number of pharmacies, the large amount of data and the workload associated with data collection, processing, analysis and transmission increased significantly (e.g. some reports took five days to produce). In addition, the lack of immediate online and mobile access to current and historical information caused problems because:
  • each pharmacy was not able to verify their group goals on a daily basis. This was only possible when centralized reports were sent.
  • the group sales team couldn’t have a clear overview on the pharmacy when a sales visit was occurring.
  • pharmacy products were being ordered without being based on the sales history which led to an increase of inventory.
Besides the reduction in productivity and efficiency as the business grew, launching new centralized services was becoming more and more difficult.
We need a consolidated system that leverages our efficiency and effectiveness to communicate and collaborate with our 80 pharmacies and partners while recognizing the pharmacist value.
Pedro Vasques (CEO, Rede Claro)

Our Approach

Step 1: Data Consolidation
  • Design and implement daily processes to collect and transform data from 80 pharmacies.
  • Create one unique centralized data warehouse.
  • Integrate and consolidate structured and unstructured data (pharmacies, market data, marketing, inventory, internal ERP, sales team visits).
Step 2: Business Overview
  • Design and implementation of dashboards for different business units
  • Finance: Sales comparison with previous year, sales forecast based on historical data, sales by different vectors (pharmacy, products, employee…).
  • Marketing: ongoing campaigns and impact on sales.
  • Purchase: product purchase suggestion reports based on historical data
Step 3: Collaboration
  • Design and development of an integrated mobile app (iOS & Android) for the group community (Rede Claro, pharmacies & industry):
  • Main functionalities: mobile dashboards & reports, news & communications, group and pharmacies events, group chat, billing documents access, pharmacies' visits, display front photos).
  • Implementation of a content management system to support the institutional site - redeclaro.pt
Step 4: Human Capital
