|ECRS Builds Interface with QS/1 System||| Print ||
Pharmacies using the QS/1 NRx pharmacy management system will now have the option of an interface with ECRS’s CATAPULT point-of-sale (POS) system. This interface will provide bidirectional communication between the two systems and merge all pharmacy and grocery department business data into a centralized repository. The bidirectional interface includes the tracking of prescriptions sold, co-located prescription data for retrieval, signature prompts, centralized storage of signatures, and real-time will-call bin management.
The interface will provide grocery retailers with pharmacy departments better coordination of the two systems. Star Super Market and Discount Pharmacy, a four-store grocery chain located in the Huntsville, Ala., area, served as the pilot site for the project between the two companies.
ECRS has also announced the introduction of a mobile point-of-sale solution that is driven by the company’s Java-based retail transaction server technology. Close to 100% of the features found in the company’s traditional POS system are available on the mobile device.
