Aurora Mobile Deepens Cooperation with a Fortune Global 500 Company to Expand Innovation for Medical Services
SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aurora Mobile Limited (NASDAQ: JG) (“Aurora Mobile” or the “Company”), a leading mobile developer service provider in China, today announced that it has deepened cooperation with Shanghai Pharmaceuticals Holding Co., Ltd. (“Shanghai Pharmaceuticals”). As a long-term partner, Aurora Mobile continues to provide advanced technical support for Shanghai Pharmaceuticals to drive higher user growth and improve operational efficiency, and both parties will work together to further promote innovation in medical services.
JG UMS helps Shanghai Pharmaceuticals develop highly accurate systems and improve operational efficiency of distribution networks
Shanghai Pharmaceuticals is the largest distributor in China for imported drugs and the second largest in pharmaceutical distribution for pharmacies. Given its huge organizational structure and distribution networks, Shanghai Pharmaceuticals has always focused on developing highly-efficient and accurate systems, improving logistics and delivery efficiency, and promoting service innovations.
Shanghai Pharmaceuticals has to manage a large number of employees for its daily operations. In order to improve management capabilities and operate a remote digital workplace, Shanghai Pharmaceuticals developed its own "OA Office" app and internal corporate website to enable employees to easily carry out remote work on their mobile phones in addition to desktop or laptop computers. However, some remote employees turn off push notifications on their mobile apps, resulting in reduced efficiency due to delivery failures of work-related messages. To address this problem, Aurora Mobile integrated the JG Unification Messaging System (“JG UMS”) into the OA office app of Shanghai Pharmaceuticals. As an integrated multi-channel messaging platform, JG UMS integrates nine major messaging channels, including mobile apps, Short Message Service (“SMS”), emails, WeChat official accounts, WeChat mini-programs, enterprise WeChat, Alipay mini-programs, DingTalk and 5G messaging.
Not only has it improved work efficiency, JG UMS makes it easy for Shanghai Pharmaceuticals to manage the WeChat official accounts and WeChat mini-programs of its subsidiaries. In addition, JG UMS features a template management function which saves manpower and improves operational efficiency by allowing customers to create single and multi-channel templates, and preset content, format and parameters of customized messages. This enables customers to easily distribute multi-format alerts and notifications at any time to different channels, such as WeChat official accounts and WeChat mini-programs.
JG UMS helps to improve large-scale logistics efficiency with innovative services
Shanghai Pharmaceuticals operates a growing distribution network serving more than 32,000 medical institutions across 31 provinces in China. Its retail network covers over 2,000 pharmacies in 16 provinces, and municipalities directly under the Central Government. Leveraging the innovation of JG UMS, arrangements from the operation team are automatically sent to the logistics team when the delivery system receives an order. To avoid any message failures, JG UMS enables real-time, scheduled, multi-channel, and offline messaging when Wi-Fi or mobile data is not available, as well as re-dispatches messages by presetting resend conditions and relevant channels.
One of the many benefits of JG UMS is its geofencing features to automatically send customer notifications when the logistic teams are within 1 km of the delivery locations. This function enables timely drug deliveries, and eliminates long waiting times. JG UMS is an effective technology and integrated service for Shanghai Pharmaceuticals to manage its logistics and delivery innovation.
Aurora Mobile creates more value for customers with continuous product innovations
The team leader at Shanghai Pharmaceuticals commented, “As a Fortune Global 500 company, Shanghai Pharmaceuticals has to innovate to enhance our competitiveness in the industry. Aurora Mobile is our long-term partner and products like JG UMS play an important function to improve our internal operations, logistics and delivery efficiency nationwide.”
