X/procure Pharmacy Advertising

Independent research study conducted by Ipsos Markinor found that more than 93% of all X/procure® pharmacy subscribers utilise the system on a daily basis. Additionally, the pharmacist was the final decision maker on the purchase in 75% of the subscribing pharmacy's.

The study also showed that in excess of 80% of pharmacists preferred ordering their stock electronically through the X/procure® Pharmacy system than through any other method and the same number felt more positive towards the brands being advertised on the system.

Recent legislation changes in South Africa has shifted more responsibility onto pharmacists, making them key decision makers in the distribution and recommendation of pharmaceutical products to the public. This places an added value onto the X/procure® software platform, as its various advertising mediums have the ability to ensure that the advertiser's brand is not only presented at the forefront of the procurement process, but the brand is highly recognisable at pharmacy level.

With advertising mediums ranging from Intervention to Interactive Adverts, X/procure® will not only ensure repetitive brand presentation but also measurability of advertising campaigns.
