Winn-Dixie launches smartphone app

Jacksonville, Fla. -- Winn-Dixie Stores said Thursday it has launched a smartphone application that will help customers manage prescriptions and locate the nearest Winn-Dixie Pharmacy with their iPhone, Android or Blackberry smartphones.

“Using the new app will help guests view and reorder prescriptions, receive alerts when their prescription is ready, set reminders to take their medications and remind them of dosage, and even remind them to schedule a doctor’s appointment,” said Mary Kellmanson, Winn-Dixie group VP marketing.

The new app and its mobile website, https://m.winndixierx.com, operate on a secure network created by San Francisco-based mscripts. It supports interactive SMS messaging, email, push notifications and mobile calendar integration, and allows Winn-Dixie guests the ability to track refill status, as well as manage doctor and other key health information.
