Rely on a long-time, trusted ally to independent pharmacies

If you’ve been in the pharmacy business a while, you know our roots as the “chain headquarters” for independent pharmacies, providing merchandising and pricing solutions through our TEMPS® Category Manager program and services delivered through regional and national wholesalers since 1980.

Today, our resources serve multiple industries and channels, but our commitment to independent pharmacies remains strong. We continue to provide objective solutions to help independents maximize profitability in their front-of-store with merchandising tools such as planograms, category insights, new item information, zone pricing, and signage to assist with in-store promotions. You’ll see us at the NCPA Annual Convention and many of the wholesaler shows throughout the year as well as our insights and articles in industry-leading publications and websites.

We also provide product manufacturers with a way to reach you with their brand message to educate and inspire you to take action in the form of our IN.depth monthly publication.
