Pharmacies can reach more local shoppers by showing them their inventory online
(Spartanburg, SC – April 28, 2021) RedSail Technologies, LLC, the nation’s largest independent pharmacy network providing pharmacy software to community and long-term care pharmacies, today announced the launch of a new integration with Pointy from Google. Pointy helps local pharmacies reach more customers by showing them what their store sells.
RedSail TechnologiesTM customers using the QS/1 Pharmacy Management System can download Pointy for free to their point-of-sale (POS) system. Once they scan their products, they are uploaded to an online catalog for their store and are then displayed on their Business Profile on Google. Their products also have a better chance of showing up in relevant product-related searches on Google.
Pointy is established in 22,000 locations, and QS/1 is one of their partners offering this service in the pharmacy industry. QS/1 customers can now take what their pharmacy offers a step further by expanding their online presence, tapping into a different market space, and appealing to a more mobile population. Statistics show that 90 percent of global shoppers who visited a store in the last week said they used online search prior to going into a store.
“With seamless integration to QS/1’s POS, this process is very simple and will not only get the pharmacy’s items online, but the Retailer Dashboard can show which items are most popular, paid vs. organic performance, or the searches shoppers initiate to find the pharmacy,” said Justin Buckland, product manager for ancillary products at RedSail Technologies.
Along with the Retailer Dashboard, other benefits include an online product catalog, image-based ads, product search results across Google surfaces, and Customer Support and Success Teams provided by Pointy.
“Facing COVID-19 and hoping to limit unnecessary trips, shoppers often check online to see if the product they need is in stock before leaving their house. That’s where Pointy and QS/1 together can make a difference in supporting the health of communities,” Buckland added.
This new integration with Pointy is available to QS/1 customers using the POS software at no additional cost with the release of Service Pack 19.1.34. The Pointy from Google and RedSail Technologies’ integration will provide QS/1 pharmacies a seamless opportunity to get their products online and to reach more local shoppers.
