ScriptPro, of Mission, Kansas, and TCGRx, of Powers Lake, Wisconsin, announce that they will be exclusive partners in a distribution and co-marketing agreement allowing ScriptPro to bring TCGRx adherence packaging technologies to retail pharmacies throughout the United States. ScriptPro is a leading provider of robotics-based pharmacy management and workflow systems to retail and ambulatory pharmacies. TCGRx distributes and supports tablet/capsule pouch packaging systems and inventory management automation for long-term care pharmacies.
Many retail and ambulatory pharmacies are increasing their services for long-term care patient populations and wish to offer the advantages of the automated systems offered by TCGRx to address this specialized market. Also, many pharmacies focused primarily on serving long-term care facilities could benefit from the power of advanced software and inventory management systems that ScriptPro provides to its retail and ambulatory markets. ScriptPro and TCGRx will work together to provide fully integrated hardware and software solutions for these customers.
According to Mike Coughlin, ScriptPro's CEO, "We have an increasing number of requests to include integrated adherence packaging technology in our product line. ScriptPro's pharmacy management system has been successfully integrated with TCGRx pouch packaging machines at initial sites and both of our companies see important opportunities to build on these models. TCGRx has an excellent reputation in long-term care pharmacy and the design quality of TCGRx products and the customer support they provide are by far the best in the industry. ScriptPro is very pleased to be entering into this relationship with such an outstanding company."
Duane Chudy, CEO of TCGRx says, "ScriptPro clearly dominates the retail and ambulatory pharmacy automation market. This relationship will allow our companies to address the technology needs of these pharmacies in a more comprehensive way. Also, ScriptPro's highly advanced pharmacy management system has been very effective in interfacing with TCGRx robots, so we are now integrating the physical inventory management storage units that TCGRx has become known for with the overall inventory management processes built into ScriptPro software. This will be a win-win for both companies and for our customers. Another bonus is that TCGRx products will be included in ScriptPro's equipment leasing program that has promoted rapid technology adoption in pharmacies."
