What is MeraChemist ?

MeraChemist is a on-demand Medicine Delivery App that aims at creating a communication channel between pharmacies and patients. The solution by Green Apex Technolabs comes with customers’ app and delivery driver app to transport medicines from pharmacies to people in need.

Abstract

MeraChemist is a leading pharmaceutical startup that aims at creating a communication channel between pharmacies and patients. What they required to turn this idea into reality was an efficient and intuitive web as well as mobile development solution which would allow their users to have the medicines delivered to their doorstep. Green Apex offered them precisely the same.

The App has two different interfaces for customers and drivers based on their needs. In addition, it has an admin panel for keeping a track of all the orders. The apps are created to cater to different needs of the target end users. In short, this Medicine Delivery App has made it easy for Indian Customers to order and have the medicines delivered to their doorsteps.

Challenges

Managing Medicine Selection

The client wished to have a feature that would allow the users to add medicines to the cart from different pharmacies. This was a major challenge. However, our experts dedicated extra hours and came up with a suitable solution.

3rd Normalization Form

The client wanted us to design the Admin interface in 3rd Normalization Form. It was something that we hadn’t implemented before. However, our senior developers boasted enough experience to brainstorm the right solution for this challenge.

“When we started out looking for developers, we hardly had any idea about the latest technologies. We weren’t technically that strong. Hence, we required a team that would take care of everything starting from converting the idea to requirements to actually implementing it. While we evaluated many teams, Green Apex came up with the most exciting concept and solution. We had a hunch that they could pull it off right from the beginning.”

Solution

Android:

Our in-house Android Developers possess more than 3 years of experience in designing and developing Apps on Android Studio. They took 3 months of time to come up with the final product for both Customer and Delivery partner interface. They indeed faced issues such as real-time tracking of drivers, product listing, cancel order feature, etc. However eventually, our Android Experts offered the effective solution for all the issues.

Android App Development Services

Website:

With Web Development, the most prominent issues are integration, browser compatibility, and CMS. Our PHP and MySQL Developers had faces them as well. Moreover, the idea of the App was not straightforward. Hence, they had to make the most of their past experience. For integration, they preferred using JSON while for the CMS part, they settled for PHP and MySQL. This development ran in parallel to the Android one. Hence, we managed to wrap the entire development work up within a space of 3 months.
