70% of Customers Want “No Lines – Always Open” Prescription Pickup Kiosks

Wilson Health Information reports that over 70% of customers wait in line 5 or more minutes to pick up their prescriptions, a 10% increase from last year, possibly contributing to an overall decline in pharmacy satisfaction. Furthermore, 7 out of 10 pharmacy customers of leading retail chains said they were interested in having a kiosk to pickup and drop off their prescriptions without waiting in line including when the pharmacy is closed. Technologies such as the Asteres ScriptCenter reduce the stress of lines and increase the hours of prescription pickup - a win-win solution for both the customer and the pharmacy.
