(Spartanburg, SC – December 26, 2016) QS/1 has been selected as a winner of Grocery Headquarters Magazine’s 2016 Pharmacy Trailblazer Award. The magazine also named QS/1 as one of the Top Pharmacy Companies of the Year. The Pharmacy Trailblazers Award recognizes innovation within the industry.
“QS/1 was one of the first companies to integrate computers into the pharmacy and we have lead the industry ever since,” said Jeff Wilson, QS/1’s vice president for marketing. “This honor from Grocery Headquarters Magazine shows we continue to lead the market in innovation and forward-thinking products and software within the pharmacy.”
The Grocery Headquarters editorial team used a number of criteria in determining who would win the prestigious award from the magazine, including new product innovation, product integrity, marketing initiatives, social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
“QS/1 was the first pharmacy software vendor to receive electronic prescriptions, achieve Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) certification and provide its own claims switch,” Wilson added.
Grocery Headquarters Magazine cited QS/1’s newly launched SharpRx, a touchscreen pharmacy management system that simplifies everyday pharmacy tasks by eliminating steps and making information easily accessible, as one of the determining factors in its decision in the award.
