CORONA, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (Ticker: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com) announced that they have developed a new line of self-service medicine storage and retrieval systems for deployment in pharmacies nationwide. The systems have been developed for Medbox RX, a leader in storage and dispensing solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
The Medbox RX Medication Storage and Retrieval System, called the "Lockbox Rx," is a patented system that stores medicines in secure lockers, controls employee access based on customizable parameters, and allow patients to pick up their prescriptions in an automated, self-service manner.
The Lockbox Rx provides pharmacists with an innovative and cost-effective method of improving efficiencies, and allows customers to "skip the lines" and pick up their prescriptions quickly and at their convenience.
The system is designed so that a pharmacist can, upon request, place a patient's prescription refill in the storage lockbox for later retrieval. This unburdens the pharmacy staff and gives the consumer added flexibility in when and how they will pick up their medicine.
To retrieve their medicine, the consumer places their finger on the system's scanner and a biometric recognition scan will verify their identity and open their lockbox. The system also keeps track of all transactions, including when prescriptions are placed into the lockbox, and when they are retrieved.
"This system is good for the pharmacist and good for the consumer," stated Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT, Inc. "In today's competitive environment, those pharmacies that can reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction will see improvements in margins and customer loyalty."
