RMS has captured a strong presence in the industry and we believe they can be of great value to our independent pharmacy businesses.

Retail Management Solutions (RMS), makers of Star-Lite and Star-Plus Point-of-Sale solutions for pharmacies, today announced that they have been selected as the approved Point-of-Sale Vendor by the Independent Pharmacy Cooperative (IPC), a national community pharmacy purchasing organization. With the agreement, over 4500 IPC member pharmacies have immediate access to a variety of enhanced capabilities, such as cash management, workflow completion, and customer loyalty to increase customer growth, enhance store efficiency, and improve profitability, while receiving significant purchase discounts on RMS’ pharmacy POS solutions.

Mike Gross, VP Sales and Marketing for RMS, said, “We are very excited about this new arrangement with IPC and to be the approved POS vendor for the largest pharmacy buying group in the U.S.”

“We have found that IPC’s core values align very closely with ours, focusing products and solutions on making independent pharmacies more profitable, and it’s in that spirit that we welcome this new partnership,” said Gross.

“IPC is proud to deliver another outstanding opportunity to the IPC membership,” said IPC Vice President of Pharmacy Services Rob Tinsley. “We are focused on being in the forefront of bringing technology to our member stores. RMS has captured a strong presence in the industry and we believe they can be of great value to our independent pharmacy businesses.”

IPC members seeking additional information on the partnership can contact their IPC regional sales director or RMS sales at (877)767-1060.


Retail Management Solutions is the industry leader in pharmacy point of sale technology for retail and outpatient pharmacies. Having installed more POS systems in the independent and outpatient pharmacies than any other company, RMS has become the industry standard, and is proud to be the only Point-of-Sale provider in the nation that focuses strictly on the pharmacy market. Because of this singular focus, and the fact that the owner and CEO grew up working in his father’s pharmacy, RMS continues to develop pharmacy POS software and hardware capabilities for pharmacies only. RMS was the first to market with electronic signature capture for HIPAA signature compliance, and was the first to market with a fully capable, mobile Point-of-Sale device, EvolutionPOS, for the pharmacy market. These are just a few examples of how RMS will continue this dedication to improving pharmacy efficiency, growth, and profitability. Everything RMS does can be measured by their mission statement, "Making our clients the most profitable and customer centric in the industry." For more information, visit
