Millions of consumers are using digital media and websites to get goods and information they need.
The popularity of online shopping is growing and gradually covering more categories of products. Buying medicine online or getting the necessary info about where you can find the medicine or who is the manufacturer is surely more convenient.
The online search system for medicines - tabletka.az of Azerbaijan will soon be integrated with similar systems operating in the U.S., European countries, Saudi Arabia and in CIS countries to ensure convenience of users.
Project manager Emin Sultanov said that the project is more important for foreign citizens visiting Azerbaijan and will assist them in searching for the medicines they need.
“Currently negotiations are underway on the possible integration of the systems,” he told Trend.
The website tabletka.az is now available in Azerbaijani and Russian languages.
"Currently, about 100 pharmacies are connected to the tabletka.az system. The database of over 40 pharmacies is updated regularly. The total number of registered drugs in the system exceeds 30,000. Soon, tabletka.az will be available to users of mobile devices running Android and iOS, after which one will also be able to pay online," Sultanov said.
The system has a search module by area, optimized search in three languages. In addition, the database is updated daily, and orders are sent automatically.
User just enters the name of necessary medicine, after which the search engine shows the pharmacies closest to the user.
Also, the system provides information about pharmacies that work around the clock.
