Systems Solutions Delivers Next Generation Software for Pharmacy Chains to Boots The Chemists

Providing greater control to Boots’ Pharmacy Business

Dublin, Ireland, 1st June 2005 – Systems Solutions, the UK’s leading IT solutions provider for the pharmacy sector, has announced that Boots The Chemists has purchased QicSCRIPT Enterprise Plus. QicSCRIPT, branded SmartScript within Boots, is a best of breed PMR (Patient Medication Record) System, which manages the entire Boots dispensing operation.

QicSCRIPT Enterprise Plus is an enhanced licensing model, introduced by Systems Solutions to enable large-scale pharmacy chains to acquire access to the source code of QicSCRIPT Enterprise. Access to source code enables a customer, such as Boots, to retain the benefits of using a proven product, while, at the same time, allowing bespoke modifications to be made. It’s the first model of its type to be introduced in the UK, and reflects Systems Solutions response to the requirements of large organisations to develop their systems flexibly in a dynamic healthcare arena.

Chris Cooper, programme manager for Boots The Chemists says, “Systems Solutions has built a solid reputation for being a driving force in IT developments within the Pharmacy sector, and we are delighted to acquire a licence for complete access to QicSCRIPT”.

Chris continues, “We believe that QicSCRIPT is the best pharmacy PMR system available in the UK, and it helps ensure that we deliver consistent, comprehensive services to all our patients, irrespective of the store they visit. QicSCRIPT Enterprise Plus will allow us to extend its capabilities, giving even more control over the system as we evolve and our needs change”.

Nick Strong, managing director for Systems Solutions says, “Boots The Chemists is the UK’s most respected pharmacy chain. The company is at the forefront of retail pharmacy and understands the importance of IT”. Nick continues, “We are thrilled that Boots has invested in QicSCRIPT Enterprise Plus to help it achieve competitive advantage through our technology”.

Nick adds, “We worked closely with Boots to understand its needs and the trends that affect the organisation’s business now and in the future. Our skills lie in translating these trends into effective solutions, which add value to customers such as Boots. This new licensing model will allow Boots to benefit from our skills, while, at the same time, undertaking specific development projects as needs dictate. This in turn provides a greater return on investment from IT”.
