Norwegian pharmaceutical and healthcare products wholesaler, Norsk Medisinaldepot AS (NMD), has successfully gone live with its first store in Oslo using the LS Central for pharmacy software from LS Retail. The company operates around 380 stores, 310 under the brand name Vitusapotek and 70 under the name Ditt Apotek.
This is the first time our pharmacy solution has been certified and implemented in Norway.
LS Central for pharmacy: a modular pharmacy and dispensing software
LS Central for pharmacy is an end-to-end software solution built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP. It enables pharmacies to process online and paper prescriptions, manage drugs and retail items effectively, and effectively manage and replenish pharmaceutical stock across their chain.
LS Central for pharmacy is the solution of choice of several global pharmacy brands. In Sweden, pharmacy chains Apoteksgruppen and Kronans Apotek use LS Central for pharmacy for retail and pharmaceutical sales and processes, as well as to deliver digital and in-person services.
Looking towards the future
“We at LS Retail are very proud of the cooperation with NMD and the successful process of jointly implementing a new state-of the-art pharmacy solution with them. The solution was accredited by the Norwegian Health Services (NHN) earlier this year and has therefore been made available as a futureproof solution, fit for the Norwegian market. We are excited to complete the roll-out with NMD in the coming year and are looking forward to the future with continuous digital improvements,” says Kristjan Johannsson, Chief Commercial Officer at LS Retail
NMD plans to use most of the functionality offered by LS Central, including dispensing, retail, and point of sale functionality. The chain plans to begin the roll out of LS Central for pharmacy in the rest of NMD stores by Summer 2023.
“We are very pleased by our cooperation with LS Retail. LS Central for pharmacy has modernized our processes and allowed us to take our services to the next level. We look forward to implementing the solution in the rest of our stores,” says Terje Kvaal, Chief Operating Officer for NMD.
