The arrival of Swisslog Healthcare in the capital of the company
Namur-Luxembourg, September 17, 2019 – Pharmony, the Belgian start-up specialized in the development of pharmaceutical software, announces today a successful capital increase of the international company Swisslog Healthcare. In 2016, Pharmony launched the innovative “Pharmony One” software, which fully manages pharmacies in the cloud, enabling them to enter the digital age. Thanks to this fund raising, Pharmony continues to make progress in Belgium and strengthens its market position.
The needs of pharmacies have evolved and now aim to increase efficiency in terms of services and costs. With its pharmacy distribution and management software, Pharmony One, the company offers an exclusive and innovative tool which, thanks to its flexibility and security, meets the challenges of tomorrow’s pharmacy: immediate availability, collaboration and above all interactivity.
To use Pharmony One, an Internet connection and a traditional computer installation are sufficient, as the software is accessible via the Cloud. The software offers customised solutions that can be adapted to any pharmacy. It is accessible 24/7 via PC or Mac, tablets and smartphone. From now on, ordering, stock management, choice of the best products for the customer, group purchasing and economies of scale on order volumes are possible thanks to a single, 100% reliable instrument offering the best guarantees in terms of security (protection of pharmacists’ and patients’ personal data, piracy …). Pharmony now has more than 50 pharmacies in Flanders and Wallonia using the software.
Administrative simplification for pharmacists
Pharmony One also makes it possible to directly connect pharmacies in the same group or chain without the intervention of expensive servers or, by simple invitation, to include a non-affiliated pharmacy that wishes to benefit from certain services or competitive prices thanks to group purchases. This is the Pharmony community.
« The use of this software minimizes administrative tasks. Ultimately, pharmacists can considerably simplify the management of their pharmacies and focus more on advising customers. This software has been developed by a team of experts who are familiar with the pharmaceutical sector and are aware of the daily problems and future challenges facing pharmacists. »
Worldwide recognition of Belgian expertise
« We are proud to invest in Pharmony, which simplifies the lives of pharmacists and helps them better serve their customers. Pharmony offers an easy-to-use solution that allows users to reduce operational costs and increase revenues. »
The participation of Swisslog Healthcare, a global player in the sector of robotics for healthcare professionals, is an important step in Pharmony’s development on the Belgian and international market and makes it possible to become one of the most important players in the sector to deal with.
The combined and converging experiences of the two companies support the development of increasingly innovative solutions and will enable a growing number of pharmacies to enter the age of digitalisation and modernity.
Pharmony was created at the beginning of 2016 with the aim of developing solutions to make life easier for pharmacists. The Pharmony One pharmacy management software, based on a unique architecture developed in the cloud, was launched in a few pharmacies after a successful test phase. There are now more than 50 pharmacies in Wallonia and Flanders using the software using the technology and deployment in Belgium is actively ongoing. The company, which has offices in Namur and Luxembourg, already employs 12 people, mainly developers and customer support staff.
