Andrew Auchterlonie - Star Pharmacy Alliance

45 pharmacies, one solution: Minfos.


When you’re running 45 pharmacy sites, you’d better have the right software, explains Andrew Auchterlonie IT Coordinator of the Star Pharmacy Alliance and Minfos customer.


Andrew Auchterlonie, IT Coordinator of the Star Pharmacy Alliance, says Minfos Multistore has made it a lot easier to manage the 45 pharmacies in the Group, and ‘definitively allowed the businesses to grow much faster and bigger than anticipated’.


Minfos Multistore enables pharmacies to effectively manage two or more stores from a single location, providing a completely integrated solution for virtually every aspect of their businesses.


First implemented for the Star Pharmacy Alliance group in February 2007, Minfos was initially introduced to meet the very clear challenge of simplifying processes across all 45 pharmacies.

Prior to then, each pharmacy was operating independently – generating myriad inefficient and costly management and administrative procedures and processes, as well as a sea of paperwork from literally hundreds of sources.


The successful implementation of Minfos resulted in significantly improved efficiencies and dramatic time and cost savings.


Andrew says he is delighted with the overall uniformity the Minfos system provides from a managerial perspective. The Group now has a central head office overseeing all pharmacies, ensuring the day-to-day store activities are a lot more transparent, while financial data and general reporting are now easily accessible in real time.


Staff, comprehensively trained in Minfos procedures, are centralised in the one office, leading to an enormous improvement in overall administrative efficiency.


As Andrew points out, Minfos has enabled the group to gradually reduce administration staff numbers over time, resulting in considerable salary savings.


Andrew finds Minfos straightforward and efficient to use, and – much to his delight – he is already seeing strong bottom-line results, with improvements ‘right across the board’.

He says he now feels like he’s in control of all components of the pharmacies.


“I’d really recommend Minfos to other pharmacy groups,” Andrew says. “The ease and overall benefits of implementing a central management system across multiple pharmacies is certainly a forward-thinking step in this competitive market.”
