The new online platform provides user friendly e-orders, extended product information, diverse promotion offerings, online delivery status, financial and credit management tools, all that in real time.
 
„Our decision to position ourselves with our name in Serbia comes as a guarantee for our commitment and engagement. Because Sopharma Trading is a company with high reputation, a transparent investor, responsible partner and an innovator. We will drive the digital transformation of the healthcare sector and introducing an innovative large scale platform such as Hybris is only the first step in that direction“- comments Dimitar Dimitrov, CEO of Sopharma Trading Group.
