Matt Hunt

Trafford Park-based mobile technology company Apadmi has been appointed by the Co-op to support with the development of its latest app which will allow customers to manage their repeat prescriptions in real time.

The company has been tasked with delivering the app’s front-end build, working closely with the Co-op Health team to ensure a clear and smooth user journey.

Matt Hunt, chief client officer for Apadmi, said: “We’re thrilled the Co-op has turned to us as a technical partner once again. It’s brilliant to see the Co-op return to strong growth, and it’s a huge compliment to be asked to help them become even stronger.

“This new app will make managing repeat prescriptions easier for people in England, by giving them greater control of their medication.

“Over the last couple of years we’ve helped digitally transform operations for companies like Argos, the NHS and United Utilities – we’re pleased to be working in partnership with the Co-op.”

Apadmi previously partnered with the retailer on the early development of the Co-op membership app, which was released in 2018 for trial.

While the first iteration of this app has focused on repeat prescriptions, Apadmi is working with the Co-op Health team to identify future self-care functionality for customers within the app.

Tim Davies, managing director of Co-op Health, said: “It’s great to be working with Apadmi as Co-op launches back into health, with the introduction of our app.

“The pharmacy sector is at the start of a digital revolution and we’re excited for what’s to come, as people increasingly look for more flexibility and convenience in accessing their medication. The app is just the start for our health business.”

Apadmi operates offices in Trafford Park, Manchester city centre and London. Other clients include the BBC, SailGP, B&M, Lexus, and Land Rover.
