As the world population lives longer, more people make use of medication and health products during their lifetime. The global pharmaceuticals market is already worth US$750 billion a year, and the figure is expected to increase dramatically in the near future.

This means managing expiry dates effectively, handling prescription drugs according to legislation, calculating prices based on very diverse insurance schemes, and more.
Pharmacies are also expected to give competent advice to customers and provide a fast, professional and polite service. On top of that,margins on pharmaceuticals keep on shrinking, making the success of a drugstores increasingly dependent on a good selection of retail items alongside medications.
