Building and managing a pharmacy business are no easy tasks. Every now and then, difficult situation arises that tests your patience and skills to the limits. You even hope that you’re like a Challenger lift that no matter how heavy the problems or challenges, still your shoulders are strong enough to carry the weight. Any business if conveyed with courage and determination despite the problems along the way, surely, successes will dominate.

  1. Staffs not well trained
  2. Unorganized surrounding that cause dispensing errors
  3. Insufficient knowledge on identifying original and fake merchandizes
