Mutual Drug

How to Modernize a Critical Business App

Mutual Drug runs a billion-dollar business by supplying more than 600 pharmacies with over 25,000 drugs and other items. However, all these potentially lifesaving items needed a more reliable network interface to ensure accurate delivery and supply. To improve service for its customers, Mutual Drug knew that it needed a better hosting solution.

The Challenge

A cooperative drug wholesaler for more than 600 pharmacies, Mutual Drug handled more than $1 billion in transactions on their MDMembers portal. To deliver better service for its many customers, Mutual Drug decided to update its primary web application.

The Strategy

Atlantic BT analyzed the Mutual Drug business and system, then migrated MDMembers to a flexible and secure cloud environment. We also modernized the MDMembers application to better engage customers and ensure high service levels.

The Results

Atlantic BT created a fault-tolerant system for Mutual Drug’s billion-dollar business. We continue to support this customer-facing system as it provides rapid and reliable service for hundreds of thousands of patients.
