Primedia Unlimited’s X/procure subsidiary continues to grow in leaps and bounds. The company has recently passed the R80 billion in processed orders mark and has shown an impressive 15% growth in orders over the past three years.
X/procure provides electronic procurement software to more than 65% of South Africa’s pharmacies which allows them to purchase scheduled and OTC pharmaceutical, surgical and front shop requirements directly from wholesalers and distributors. The company also facilitates electronic advertising directly to the pharmacist through a myriad of platforms.
“Our ongoing success is partly due to the great relationships we have with key players in the pharmaceutical industry and the demand for more clients wanting an electronic procurement system,” says MD JD Henderson. “More importantly though is that our systems are continually being tried and tested, undergoing improvements as and when needed.”
“By continually increasing our footprint in this industry, we anticipate even more growth during our next fiscal. Our sincere thanks go to our clients, staff, management team and suppliers for their continual support,” he says.
Recent updates to the software include increasing the speed of imported orders from third party vendors for an easy integrated platform. The company has also updated the way in which it links products and the updating of barcodes, Nappi codes and schedule codes on the pharmacy platform.
