April 28th, 2011
MIAMI – Navarro Discount Pharmacy is extending the reach of its prescription drug services with Navarro RX App, a free pharmacy mobile application.
The Miami-area drug store chain said Thursday that Navarro RX App links mobile device users to the retailer's new mobile website, m.navarro.com, and provides a menu of pharmacy tools. The app supports iPhone, BlackBerry and Android smartphones — and soon Windows Mobile 7 devices — as well as two-way interactive SMS messaging.
"The Navarro RX App is an innovative communication tool that gives customers 24x7 access to the pharmacy and allows them to more easily manage their prescriptions," Sergio Campos, chief information officer for Navarro Discount Pharmacy, said in a statement.
Customers with a Navarro prescription can access the app at m.navarro.com or from mobile app stores. Features include the ability to interact with the pharmacy 24 hours a day; view and reorder prescriptions; receive prescription reminders via SMS, e-mail, push notifications and mobile calendar integration; and get pickup reminders when prescriptions are ready.
Navarro RX App users also can set up automatic delivery of refill reminders; receive dosage reminders; request refills and track prescription refill status by SMS or phone app; access store maps and locators, enabling them to find the nearest Navarro pharmacy on the go; and manage doctor and other key health information, the drug chain said.
"Making a mobile app available for customers is yet another way we are enhancing the customer experience at Navarro," stated Albert Garcia, executive vice president of pharmacy operations at Navarro Discount Pharmacy.
