St. Louis College of Pharmacy uses Fujitsu Tablets to create a more engaged learning environment

"Ninety percent of the computer problems we experience are user-induced, but the build is of industrial quality so even dropping them rarely does lasting damage. Put simply, the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK® can take a beating and keep working."

Chad Shepherd CIO, St. Louis College of Pharmacy

The customer

Founded in 1864, St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) is the third-oldest continually operating college of pharmacy in America. Since its start in the midst of the Civil War, STLCOP has been a steadfast presence in the St. Louis community and leader in the profession of pharmacy for more than 150 years. Today, more than 7,000 alumni practice in 48 states and 14 different countries. STLCOP is located in one of the country’s most distinguished biomedical communities, with neighbors including Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

The challenge

As one of the pioneers of one-to-one programs, St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) is continually refreshing its devices on campus. The College needs to find the right devices to meet the needs of students and faculty.

The solution

As a longtime Fujitsu partner, the College has been investing in approximately 500 Fujitsu LIFEBOOK PCs every year. The most recent model to be evaluated is the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T726.

The benefit

  • Precise pen input and the ability to share with the class makes for a more engaged and active learning environment that boosts student learning outcomes
  • Fujitsu devices with digital projectors eliminate the need for costly and unreliable smartboards, thus saving money
  • The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK is ultra-reliable and can withstand the rigors of college life, and an on-site, fully authorized service center quickly takes care of any issues if they do arise
