PLYMOUTH, Minn. – Thrifty White Pharmacy announced today that the partnership between Thrifty White and SureCost, a central ordering application powered by Emerlyn Technology, will now be offered to Independent pharmacies through Thrifty White’s Affiliated Pharmacy Program.

“Implementing SureCost technology will streamline the ordering process for our Affiliated Pharmacy Partners while ensuring they are receiving best in industry pricing through our vast portfolio of supplier contracts. The SureCost platform was designed to combine the formularies of Thrifty White’s multiple supplier partners and allow the user to easily identify the lowest cost item available and direct it towards the appropriate distributor. This is just another tool we have deployed to help ensure that our Affiliated Pharmacy partners continue to thrive and remain profitable in an ever changing and increasingly challenging business environment,“ said Scot Rewerts, director of Thrifty White’s Affiliated Pharmacy Program.

The partnership will further enable independent pharmacy owners that partner with Thrifty White to streamline their ordering process across its multiple supplier partnerships, the SureCost software reviews each item selected for replenishment and directs the purchase to the best source.
