The days of having to travel to the pharmacist to pick up your prescription medication are over! Echo is a free app which allows you to order your repeat prescriptions to your door by simply telling the app what prescription you need and where your local GP is located.

Once Echo has placed the order the medication is then shipped and delivered by first class Royal Mail for no cost. Additionally the app also ensures that you stay on top of your condition by reminding you to reorder, telling you when to check in with your GP and sending alerts at the times you need to take your medication.

Echo has raised £1.8 million seed funding by LocalGlobe in November 2016 and £7 million series A funding from White Star Capital.  This has allowed for the app to be further developed and modified to potentially become the best medication management tool in the market.

The concept of Echo and the software components associated to creating such an innovative app are considered to be Research and Development. The company is therefore eligible for a significant rebate on its R&D expenditure. The available tax relief on R&D activities is very generous and should be utilised, to find out more contact a Swanson Reed R&D specialist today.
