NetDespatch is just what the doctor ordered for Chemist Counter Direct


NetDespatch, the leading provider of web-based integration solutions for customers of postal and parcel carriers, has enabled online pharmacy Chemist Counter Direct, to significantly improve its despatch processes, through the seamless integration of its order management system and its carrier’s delivery network.  

When its carrier realigned its service offering, the system that Chemist Counter Direct was using no longer worked. With hundreds of items sold each day through its own eCommerce site, the online pharmacy needed an immediate remedy to prevent service disruption for its domestic and international customers.

The NetDespatch Retail Solutions team stepped in and quickly configured the powerful NetDespatch Import Wizard to map Amazon shipments directly into the NetDespatch servers, and the versatile NetDespatch Connector application to print the correct thermal barcoded labels in the warehouse. An added bonus was the automated pre-advice to the carrier’s Online Business Account system on production of the end of day Sales Order Summary Manifest.

Chemist Counter Direct is delighted with the new integrated solution. “NetDespatch saved the day by allowing us to switchover to the new system with ease, and the support from NetDespatch has been particularly good,” said Paul Reel, Pharmacist Superintendent, Chemist Counter Direct. “The NetDespatch solution saves us about five man-hours per day. There is no manual data entry, and we have access to Royal Mail’s Tracked 48, Packets and International Business Parcels products through this application. The label format is clearer than our previous system, and it includes the customer’s order reference, which is essential for online transactions.”

He added, “We have been granted a licence to fill online prescriptions from September. These products will have to be delivered to home addresses, with track and trace to comply with both UK and EU regulations.”

NetDespatch provides a cost-free solution for retailers with an easy to use secure system that automates the connection between order processing and despatch and delivery, even if the orders are received in one location and despatched from another. There are no costs involved for installation, training or support, and the system is available instantly
