Belgium’s leading pharmaceutical supplier introduces SEQR
The dominant pharmaceutical supplier in Belgium, Febelco, has signed an agreement with the Nasdaq Stockholm listed Seamless to introduce the company’s SEQR mobile payment solution. Initially, SEQR is now being introduced as a payment method in some 150 webstores of a total of 2,000 that can comprise Febelco’s online solution Febelnet.
Febelco supplies products to 2,000 independent pharmacists for a total annual value of EUR 1.4 billion, making the company one of the largest suppliers of pharmaceuticals in Belgium. With the support of Febelco, affiliated pharmacists sell their goods via the shared online solution Febelnet, through which consumers place orders that can subsequently be collected in a physical store.
“Belgium along with the rest of Europe is becoming an increasingly important market for SEQR. The agreement with Febelco has significant potential, given the great enthusiasm with which the pilot project was received. Because of this, I expect a large share of the pharmacists to join in the near future. Not least due to the substantial growth in online sales of pharmaceuticals in Belgium,” says Peter Fredell, CEO of Seamless.
