PharmEasy - Business Model

PharmEasy also delivers locally medicines within the town or city. It's like Grofers for medicine. Pin codes are segmented based on the customers wherever they stay and the company makes sure that it matches with the corresponding medical stores of the concerned area. Ordering through the app is also available where customers get a satisfactory discount of 20% upon each order made.

Due to various rules and regulations set by the government, the company doesn't deliver Schedule H drugs. There are cases where customers aren't sure from where the medicine is coming from and henceforth many people don't trust e-pharmacies. All the consumers are to have faith within so that the company makes people's health easy.

PharmEasy - Challenges Faced

The company started a journey in the year 2014 by delivering genuine products with cool discounts. Today it's a long chain of supplying products all over India. Of course, the company confronted challenges. Point to be noted-: challenges are inevitable. It was difficult for the company to deliver products without a prescription.

Knowledge of the names of the medicines wasn't enough. A valid prescription was compulsory for the supplying of the products. Many didn't want to upload their prescriptions thinking of a number of consequences. Location tracking back then was a bit difficult for the delivery agents of the company. Now, everything is digitized so it isn't an issue anymore. But back then it was. Slowly problems were solved and now more than half of the population of India knows about the company.

PharmEasy - Customer Acquisitions

Customer acquisition of a company totally depends upon trust and faith. How much the company is giving to its customers and how much they are able to gain from it. The more the company benefits its customers, they receive more customers. And this way the number doubles and triples. It's a two - way policy.

PharmEasy - Competitors

The company's top competitors include Ranger Health, Myra Medicines, Hello Heart and BrownPacket respectively. These companies are building their own empire just like the startup company - PharmEasy. All are in a developing state but PharmEasy is a way bit better in the competition. Ranger Health is a company which was founded in the same year with PharmEasy and the headquarter is located in the US. The company has got fewer employees compared to PharmEasy. Their total funding is $10 million which is quite a bit lower than PharmEasy. The competition is going tough in this platform but all the reputed companies are trying their level best to acquire the top position.

PharmEasy - Growth

The company is heading towards massive growth. It's a big thing for a startup company like theirs. It's growing at 4x year - on - year which is having the possibility of reporting a revenue of Rs. 450 crores. Unbelievable! From the year 2014, both men - Shah and Sheth are playing a big role from behind the scene.

They sold medicines, health care products, etc to all local pharmacies possible through a digitized platform. There is no shortcut to success. Success will always be waiting at the end of the long way we need to plan accordingly, perform the righteous thing in order to accomplish growth which will lead the company towards success.
