Storbie’s Vision for a Pain-free Pharmacy Online Store Product Catalogue Management System

Updated 19 Dec 2017

Over the last 12 months Storbie has quickly grown to be the biggest supplier of ecommerce-capable websites to independent pharmacies in New Zealand. During that time, we have spoken to hundreds of pharmacies, come to admire the important work that they do and appreciate the way that they manage a complex and challenging business.

Pharmacies are not only delivering an important health service – that many of us take for granted and takes years of training, focus and attention to detail – they are also managing a complex retail business, bringing together products from hundreds of suppliers into a busy store. It’s no wonder that pharmacies often struggle to find the time to get their pharmacy and product catalogue online even if they appreciate the importance of doing so.

Identifying the challenges of online product catalogue management for pharmacies

At Storbie, we are a practical bunch. We are always striving to identify and solve our customers’ real challenges. We have also always been the champion of the independent retailer. While working with pharmacies, we have come to learn that the biggest challenge facing the independent pharmacy in New Zealand regarding setting up and managing a digital channel is the product catalogue.

Storbie Rising Star AcceptanceStorbie was totally chuffed to be named as a Deloitte 2015 Fast 50 Rising Star at the Wellington & Lower North Island awards last night! You can see all of the regional winners and rising stars here.

The Storbie Online Marketplace Builder: Be Different Together

All standalone Storbie online stores will soon be supported by a growing network of marketplaces. Anyone will be able to create a marketplace to collectively promote individual brands, and any business will be able to join existing marketplaces to increase online exposure and sales. With Storbie, you can be different, together.

Online retail mirroring the physical world

In physical retail, competing or complementary businesses often band together in a cluster to increase the value, exposure and sales of their individual brands. The best of these clusters become brands in their own right. This could be a retail precinct, like Wellington’s quirky Cuba Street, for example.

At Storbie we realise that standing out from the crowd, gaining exposure and increasing sales in the online world can be even more challenging. So why not bring the idea of clusters online? With the Storbie marketplace builder, you can. (more…)
