Tired of paying huge pharmacy bills? Here is a mobile app that promises Generic Substitutes for Drugs of all kinds at a cost effective price.

Pune-based MedsOnWay.com is a cost-effective pharmacy-portal that has recently launched its Android app, with an aim to help consumers buy drugs at an economical price. The start-up was founded Aniket Bora and Prashant Pillai in 2014, with a vision to eradicate the current issue of non-availability of medicines in the nearest pharmacy stores and tone down the high prices of generic drugs.

Talking about the app, Prashant Pillai, Co-Founder, MedsOnWay, said, “With the app, we hope to eradicate the recurrent problem of non-availability of medicines in the nearest pharmacy store. We have a sturdy Supply Chain Management Model that runs on three Efficient Steps – Strong Distribution Channel, Assured Availability and Timely Delivery.”

Also, the Android application is equipped with innovative features that make medicine purchase easy. One can simply upload their prescription online and order medicines directly. Users can avail an assured discount of 10 per cent on their bills along with free home delivery service, while saving upto 70 per cent, while placing order monthly.

Moreover, the bill payment can be done by cash-on-delivery basis on genuine bills provided by the company to ensure authentic medicines with batch numbers and expiry dates.

Users can also get drug information by gaining knowledge about usage and side effects of medicines.

Meanwhile, commenting over the current market presence and future roadmap, Aniket Bora, Co-Founder, MedsOnWay, informed, “We plan to have our presence in 4 cities by next year and 12 major cities by 2017. We project to capture around 0.5 per cent of chronic market summing up to approx Rs 18,000 crore by 2017. At the moment, we have 80,000 medicines registered with us.”

Interestingly, the app keeps record of the orders, enabling users to re-order their purchase easily as and when required. The option of Refill Reminders helps customers remind of their requirements three days in advance to ensure timely refills. Moreover, discussing the dosage, instructions, precautions and substitutes for each available medicine in the online store presents a very transparent scenario for the customers.
