BestRx - Remedy using Azure

BestRx is a premier pharmacy management software provider for independent and retail pharmacies. Today
they serve more than 75,000 clients and provide products that include pharmacy management as well as
patient profile, processing and billing, workflow and reporting applications.
Problem
To stand out in a tightening market and prepare for its next phase of growth, Best RX decided to transform
its IT infrastructure and transition to the cloud.
BestRx’ s IT department had been using multiple on-prem data servers for backing up all their pharmacy

They approached Cloud 9 Infosystems, to assess their situation and design a solution that leveraged Azure
Cloud to improve their operational efficiencies.

under the belt, we were expertly able to layout a unique 2 phased approach that delivered a comprehensive
cloud-based solution to perform “always on” data synchronization from their pharmacies to a centralized
server on Azure.
