The customer

Apotronik is the leading IT partner for Austria's pharmacies. The company has been providing efficient, easy to use solutions for its customers' daily processes for over 25 years. Its range of services cover everything from tailor-made point-of-sale (POS) software to certified IT consulting, installation and configuration services and ongoing support. This means that its customers can get all of the IT services they need from a single source. Apotronik constantly adapts and updates the software it develops for the pharmacies to keep up with changing market and customer requirements, and to ensure that it is always features the latest, most powerful technologies. Today, a large proportion of Austria's pharmacies rely on Apotronik for their IT services, and the company has developed an excellent reputation for providing both high quality products and excellent customer service.

The challenge

Due to the discontinuation of support services for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 in July 2015, many of Austria's pharmacies needed to be converted to Microsoft Windows Server 2012. Sales partner Apotronik saw this as the perfect opportunity to replace all existing server hardware at the pharmacies it supports. As the servers were going to be installed within the pharmacies' sales areas, Apotronik needed to find devices that were as compact and quiet as they were powerful.

The solution

Fujitsu replaced the existing server hardware in 200 of the pharmacies supported by Apotronik with PRIMERGY tower servers. A total of 200 PRIMERGY TX1320 and PRIMERGY TX2540 servers were installed over the course of the project. The components were tailor-made to meet the pharmacies' requirements in terms of performance, size and noise volumes.

The benefits

  • Secure hardware base for running Microsoft Hyper-V virtualized systems
  • Compact size
  • Attractive design and low noise levels are ideal for use at the POS
  • Optimized system support with remote management
  • High quality hardware, made in Germany
