PD breaking news – Sigma partners with Fred IT Group

Sigma signs Fred IT alliance

Australian pharmaceutical wholesaling and distribution giant Sigma Pharmaceuticals today announced the country’s largest pharmacy IT partnership with tech solutions company Fred IT Group to deliver Sigma’s next generation retail platform, supporting more than 700 pharmacies across Australia.

The new platform is described as a single cloud-based technology solution, which will underpin Sigma’s broader technology and data strategy implementation. The integrated retail platform is intended to provide a significantly improved pharmacy user experience, as well as driving synergies across merchandising, pricing, and promotional functions.  

Sigma said the arrangement would enable the company to provide market leading support to its brand members – Amcal, Guardian, Discount Drug Stores, PharmaSave and Chemist King and was built on Fred IT’s new integrated pharmacy cloud solution, Fred NXT.

Mark Hooper, Sigma ceo and md, commented that the combination of Sigma’s industry knowledge together with Fred’s IT credentials ticked all the boxes, providing the company with a reliable and future-proofed solution that also delivered flexibility to innovate and respond quickly to future market changes.

Sigma and Fred IT have said they would have a dedicated team to manage the full Australia wide rollout, upgrade, conversions and training which would commence shortly, with the majority of stores to be converted within 24 months.
