LANGHORNE, Pa., July 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ScripsAmerica Inc. (OTCBB:SCRC), a supplier of prescription, OTC and nutraceutical drugs, today announced that the Company has signed an agreement with a network buying group to provide prescription and OTC drugs to its clients which include over 700 independent pharmacies with GPO relations.
A GPO (group purchasing organization) is an entity that leverages the purchasing power of a group of businesses to obtain discounts from vendors based on their collective buying power.
Additionally, ScripsAmerica has secured the services of an industry leading pharmaceutical logistics company to store and facilitate the distribution of these products to the independent pharmacies. Per the agreement, ScripsAmerica will order from the manufacturers and have the products shipped to the fully licensed logistics company who will distribute the drugs to the network's pharmacies as ordered.
This "pick and pack" operation allows ScripsAmerica to leverage its purchasing power and supply its pharmacies with the quantity of products they need at competitive prices.
"ScripsAmerica is very excited to announce this relationship which we anticipate will have very positive revenue implications for the company due to its strong business model. We will now offer a unique distribution avenue to potentially several hundred independent pharmacies for prescription drugs they would not otherwise have access to," commented ScripsAmerica's CEO, Bob Schneiderman.
"We will initially distribute products to between 35 and 50 pharmacies within the network, however within twelve months, ScripsAmerica could provide pharmaceuticals to the company's entire network. Because of this, we estimate generating significant revenue during the first six to twelve months of the agreement as we scale up our operations," continued Schneiderman.
