Founded by a retail pharmacist who’d spent 15 years working for national chains, Plainsboro Pharmacy provides a wide range of personalized healthcare services to its community, including vaccines, medical equipment and stress-free prescription fulfillment. We recently spoke with the manager, Heba Macksoud, about how RUN Powered by ADP has helped her save time and money as the business has evolved and changed.
