Company Wins Business Development of the Year Award at Chemist & Druggist Awards 2008
Fresh Egg, a web design and internet marketing company specialising in search engine optimisation, announces today that its client myrepeats.com has won the Business Development of the Year award at the prestigious Chemist & Druggist Awards 2008.
Myrepeats.com is a pioneering online service which allows patients to place orders for repeat prescriptions. Following a hugely successful pilot in Worthing, with orders rocketing to 3,500 per month, the service now operates nationwide. Pharmacies using myrepeats.com have attracted new customers and received an increased number of repeat prescriptions at a minimal set-up cost. The service is also beneficial to patients, allowing them to register and log on securely from home and order their repeat medicines by sending a message to their chosen pharmacy. The pharmacy then orders the prescription from the patient’s surgery and dispenses it ready for collection or delivery to the patient’s home or work address.
Fresh Egg not only designed and developed the innovative website, but was also responsible for creating the overall brand for myrepeats.com. Taking into consideration the large proportion of elderly customers, it was important to make the website as user-friendly as possible. Fresh Egg did this by ensuring they made all processes exceptionally clear and easy to navigate. An additional challenge was to maintain a high level of security which would ensure that patients’ details always remain private.
“This was a great project for Fresh Egg, not only is it an innovative idea but we were given a fairly broad brief which meant we were able to become very involved in the decision-making process. To have gone on to create a working and successful service has been very rewarding for the Fresh Egg team”. Adam Stafford, Managing Director, Fresh Egg.
“Fresh Egg’s innovative web team were quick to grasp the concept we had in mind and were on the ball right from the beginning. They understood our needs and came up with some great ideas relevant to our market. Paul Howie, myrepeats.com.
