Syosset, New York – Micro Merchant Systems through its PrimeRx™ pharmacy management system has been named “2019 Software Company of the Year” by the American Pharmacy Purchasing Alliance (APPA).
The award, which is based on results of an industry-wide survey, honors Prime Rx™ for innovation, dedication and best-in-class service. PrimeRx™ received almost 970 votes from APPA members, and was clearly the preferred favorite in a category that included several industry-leading competitors.
“We are very pleased and gratified by this honor,” said Akbar Merchant, president and owner of Micro Merchant Systems. “The APPA award is especially meaningful because it reflects the attitudes of independent pharmacy managers, who are the individuals most qualified to rate different pharmacy software companies.”
PrimeRx™ is the core operating system of Micro Merchant Systems pharmacy management platform. PrimeRx™ features a comprehensive suite of tools that can be customized for each pharmacy’s specific needs.
“It has always been our goal to deliver a product that would allow pharmacies to better manage their operations, and more efficiently serve patients,” said Micro Merchant Systems’ Ketan Mehta. “This award validates our efforts and demonstrates that PrimeRx™ is helping to address the needs of today’s busy pharmacy.”
APPA launched the “APPA Industry Awards” in 2014 as a way to recognize outstanding performers in the pharmaceutical industry. Each year six categories are honored, which in 2019 includes the “Software Company of the Year” designation.
APPA invites its membership, comprised of more than 3,000 independent pharmacy owners, to cast votes for each category.
“Micro Merchant Systems and its PrimeRx™ operating system are clear leaders in the pharmacy software category,” said Joshua Pirestani, founder of American Pharmacy Purchasing Alliance. “This award affirms the high regard pharmacy customers have for Micro Merchant Systems’ commitment to providing innovative solutions for the increasingly complex challenges of today’s pharmacy. Our deepest congratulations for an award that is well-deserved.”
