Price & Plan Manager

Your front-end plays a vital role in keeping your store profitable, convenient and relevant. We provide merchandising, pricing and product solutions to elevate your pharmacy’s traffic and drive non-prescription sales.

Meet your consumers’ expectations and still reach your maximum margins with our strategic pricing, merchandising and product resources.

Zone Pricing

Many pharmacies settle for a default margin for front-end products and miss a large profit opportunity. Rather than slash prices and lose margin – implement a retail pricing strategy!

Zone Pricing provides market-competitive pricing tiers to get the most profit from every item, without out-pricing your consumers’ expectations. This comprehensive database provides item-specific pricing for all health, beauty and wellness categories. Four competitive price zones are provided to address varying levels of competition and specific classes of trade.

GoodSense Pricing
If you are pricing your private-label with the same mark-up as branded products, you are leaving money on the table. GoodSense maintains an average price of 30% less than brand equivalents white providing margins of 40-60%.


Price Manager

In addition to retail pricing, this program consists of monthly new item alerts, retail zone pricing and point-of-purchase shelf signs for 180 top-selling items across all OTC and HBW categories.

A complete, initial set of 180 point-of-purchase shelf signs, featuring the retail zone pricing the pharmacy has selected, is sent with the first monthly update packet. Signs are updated on a monthly basis thereafter as retail prices are modified.


Plan Manager

Work every square foot with strategic space management, product mix, department mapping and new item assessments. Featuring department planograms, retail zone pricing and point-of-purchase signage, Plan Manager is designed to build a competitive image while optimizing opportunities with every consumer who enters a store.

Plan Manager includes full color planograms for 21 HBW departments. Each department is reviewed and updated annually. Participants receive planograms, a product list of featured products, never outs and new item alerts.
