Hey Readers, please check it. There is one interesting news for all people awaiting for the COVID-19 vaccine. Biotechnology firm Moderna announced one new vaccine and it’s 94% effective in preventing illness, including severe cases as the whole world is waiting to get relief from COVID-19 and to be back on track and live their life happily and peacefully. As Coronavirus had some worst effects on economic conditions, this is little relief for everyone and a positive news.
The E-commerce Giant Amazon has opened an online pharmacy on Tuesday, the 17th of November, which allows customers to order medication or prescription refills, and have them delivered to their home in just a couple of days.
As you all know that you can sell your products to crores of customers across India which is one of the best parts of amazon . Also you can track your order , cancel your order and you can also get refund money which is another best part of amazon . Many people order different products and also they give huge discounts on Festival season. One of the best qualities of amazon is reliability and safety.
Amazon has also become a threat to shipping companies, delivering more than half of its own packages itself. Vans stamped with the Amazon logo have become as common a sight as the UPS truck.
The company said its online pharmacy will offer commonly prescribed medications in the U.S., including creams, pills, as well as medications that need to stay refrigerated, like insulin. Shoppers have to set up a profile on Amazon’s website and have their doctors send prescriptions there. It won’t ship medications that have a high risk of being abused, like some opioids.
At Sruta Technologies, we work with small businesses including local and community Pharmacies and help them compete against the Big Chain Pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid. As Amazon has taken the entry in this industry, it will be hard for local Pharmacies in multiple areas. Either it’s fulfilling the customer demand, delivering orders to the clients, providing online ordering of medication, online prescription refill, providing prime shipping type service to the members, making returns easier, digitally reaching out to the customer or many such areas. We help our customer to have such competitive edge.
