Grupo Fármacos Especializados Determined Oracle Engineered Systems to be the Most Efficient, Cost-Effective Solution for Maintaining Business Growth
Redwood Shores, CA - March 27, 2014
The medical supply industry relies on information and streamlined processes to ensure that specialty drugs and medical equipment are delivered to the right people at the right time. While medical suppliers are looking for innovative ways to optimize their business, making changes can be risky and threaten business continuity. By leveraging Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine to consolidate all of its enterprise data, Grupo Fármacos Especializados, the leading supplier of specialized medical equipment and medicine in Mexico, improved service and delivery to pharmacies and medical institutions. By consolidating data for optimal reporting and decision-making, Grupo Fármacos Especializados was also able to optimize resources and ensure the delivery of its life-saving medical products and services, like chemotherapy drugs, while increasing operational efficiency.
Grupo Fármacos Especializados is the leading supplier of specialized medical equipment and medicine in Mexico, with more than 35 years of experience in the industry.
The Grupo Fármacos Especializados consortium of companies specializes in various healthcare-related services and products that need to be delivered via both daytime and nighttime operations.
For example, one of its companies receives more than 9,000 pharmaceutical orders daily, which must be processed every night. This involves taking orders, assigning them to the store for collection, putting together packages, scanning products and evaluating delivery according to priority distribution.
In 2011, the group chose to implement Oracle Engineered Systems to better offer its 24-hour services to both public and private sector customers.
Grupo Fármacos Especializados selected Oracle Exalogic to help achieve better response times and address the high transaction volumes across the organization. For example, one of its companies receives an average of 333,000 monthly processing bills and Oracle Exalogic has provided the high-performing, efficient solution needed to accommodate the group.
Using Oracle Exalytics, the company's operational and analytics processes work seamlessly, with optimum performance.
By implementing Oracle technology, Grupo Fármacos Especializados is also able to maintain operational independence for each of its subsidiary companies to ensure business continuity.
"Our success depends on optimal business performance, so we chose a solution that would work seamlessly and efficiently and give us the capacity to meet growing demands," said Alfredo Funes, IT Director at Grupo Fármacos Especializados. "Oracle Engineered Systems exceeded our expectations by allowing us to consolidate information, such as medical inventory, while improving business operations and decision-making."
