An Android Tablet or Apple iPad is required as the primary device to use Smart Rx Manager.
It is needed to activate your account and for user management. You should also use it to access your compliance reporting and analytics dashboard that includes expiry management and scan status of medicines. You can also connect an approved Bluetooth Handheld Scanner if you choose not to use the industrial grade tablet camera scanner functionality built into the app.
The same Smart Rx Manager app downloaded to a compatible Android Smartphone, Apple iPhone, or iPod Touch listed in Certified Devices turns your Smartphone or iPod Touch into a 'companion scanner' using the camera to scan a 2D data matrix barcode. The device will send the scan data to your country NMVS and your account on the TraceLink Network which then publishes all data captured by the companion scanner to your iPad, or Android Tablet also running Smart Rx Manager.
Your organization can be compliant with simply the app, an Android tablet or iPad (required), and connection to the TraceLink Network and by extension your in-country NMVS. No other handheld scanner is required for purchase to use Smart Rx Manager. An optional Bluetooth handheld scanner can be linked to your iPad or Android Tablet and the Smart Rx Manager app can be downloaded to an iPhone, iPod Touch or Android Smartphone to serve as a companion scanner to add more users to Smart Rx Manager quickly and easily.
After signing up for Smart Rx Manager, the app is available in the Apple AppStore or GooglePlay:
