Pharmaceutical companies in India invest large amounts of money in marketing & advertising their products. As a result, you can find a huge difference in prices for the same medicines from different pharmaceutical brands, making them unaffordable for the masses.
To solve this concern, MeraPharmacy developed a web-based online chemist portal which offers more than 1,00,000 generic medicines, surgical products, FMCG goods & chemist supplies at affordable prices. As one of their growth strategy, they wanted to develop a mobile application, so users can quickly order medicines from their mobile devices.
To develop an android based mobile application which facilitates users to order medicines from their mobile devices.
An application where users can upload their prescriptions, read detailed drug description and its usage.
As a solution to deliver generic medicines at lower price, Yudiz mobilized the whole idea, and developed an android based application. To simplify the order process, we incorporated upload feature through which users can directly submit a prescription. If users don’t have any prescription, they can search medicines on the application. This app facilitates user to read the detailed description for any medicines.
This application stores the history of user’s medicines and bills, so user can download it anytime. To make this application unique, we used medicine reminder feature. User can set the time when he wants to be reminded about the medicine.
As we knew this application is going to be used on different Android devices, we used material design to unify intuitive experience. To provide a flexible view for a limited window into a large data set, we used class RecyclerView. Our developers used Volley library which makes networking call for Android apps faster and easier.
A database of more than 1,00,000 generic medicine could definitely slow down the search process. But, we came up with an idea to incorporate local search function, which helps its end users to search medicines quickly. While developing this application, we set our goal to make this application user friendly.
- Users of this app can order generic medicines from the large database at affordable price.
- Add/Delete prescription option helps users to order medicines effortlessly.
- Users of this application hardly forget to take medicine on time, due to its medicine reminder feature.
