December 17, 2015By News

Waukesha, Wisconsin – December 17, 2015 – Hamacher Resource Group (HRG) is announcing its annual enhancements to its widely-used monthly category management program for independent pharmacy, TEMPS®. Improvements to the program include additional information to help with visual merchandising and promoting new-to-market products, and modifications to a few planograms and categories. Priority products were moved to the page that lists Never Outs® to consolidate the most actionable information for the pharmacy to one sheet and make it easy for front-end managers to access this important data quickly.

An inter-departmental HRG team reviews the overall TEMPS program on an annual basis. Taking into consideration user feedback and trends in the marketplace, they determine improvements that can be made to streamline the implementation of merchandising recommendations presented, enhance department management, and make the most of new item introductions, all to further front-end profitability of independent pharmacies.

HRG has been serving the independent pharmacy channel for over 35 years. With services ranging from category management and merchandising, to pricing, training, and comprehensive store assessments, the company’s broad and deep knowledge of independent pharmacy – including the supply chain that supports it – is one of its strongest areas of expertise.

“So many independent pharmacies rely on our TEMPS program to help them merchandise and maximize profitability in their front-end,” said Julie Bonnell, HRG director of operations and member of the owners group. “We know how busy pharmacy staff is, so we continue to streamline what and how we present the information to make it impactful and easy to implement with a minimal time investment.”
