The Search for “The One”: Choosing the Right Pharmacy Software

Choosing the right software system blog feature

Let’s be upfront

We’re a pharmacy software company, and we want you to choose us, of course. But as you’re shopping around and trying to remember a mental list you made of all the features you need, we would like to give you a few pointers to keep in mind. We talk to potential customers every day, so we know what you’re looking for (and what you didn’t even know to look for).

Making Healthy Patients

The pharmacy industry thrives on innovation, but some pharmacists may be so focused on filling prescriptions that they have forgotten what really matters. We at PioneerRx are passionate about all the bells and whistles that make a pharmacist’s job easier, but we haven’t forgotten their true purpose: making healthy patients. Your pharmacy system should be centered on the pharmacist’s top priority, and all the extras should allow your workflow to continue while you focus on your patients.

What are the industry leaders using?

Because your pharmacy’s software serves as the foundation for your workflow, you must choose wisely. Don’t settle for the system your pharmacy “has always used” or what you were trained on during your years as a student. Reach out to your pharmacy mentors and industry leaders and find out which software they swear by.


Think of the last time you heard from representatives of your software. Was it an immediate response from their support team? The most recent trade show? A users’ conference? Be mindful how “available” your software is beyond the support center.

Find a Partner

Finally, find a software that can grow with you. It is essential to partner with someone who will work with you every step of the way and won’t abandon you when your installation is over. After all, this will be a long-term relationship, so look for a company that wants to see you flourish, whether you’re opening your first store or considering a fifth location. As for PioneerRx, we’re in it for the long haul, and we will see you through to success.

Each pharmacy is different, so take a look at your pharmacy’s needs and goals and see which software is the right match for you.
