Community pharmacy is under threat with pharmacies set to lose $90,000/annum from PBS discolsure alone.
Since 2011, 10 of the largest volume pharmacy-only medicines have been downscheduled and can now be bought outside pharmacy.
Smart pharmacies are focusing on Professional Services and optimising their Front of Shop to counteract these changes.

GuildSmart is very easy to use. Being time poor, I find it very handy as it gave me insights into where I should focus on, allows me to set relevant goals with my staff and engages the team to pursue them. I particularly like the companion products and OTC generic conversion features.

GuildSmart is a great tool. I love the insights it gives me and the ability to see the impact of my actions (and my staff's actions) on the performance of the pharmacy live. Setting goals was very easy. We were able to see the impact of each action and that helped re-enforce the right behaviour.
