Updating the Critical Business App for Mutual Drug’s National Operation

Mutual Drug runs a billion-dollar business by supplying more than 600 pharmacies with more than 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 Story

How to Modernize a Critical Business App

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. Mutual Drug needed a more fault-tolerant solution.

The Strategy

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

The Result

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.

To support more than 600 pharmacies and $1 billion in transactions, Mutual Drug needed a modernized web application.

Cloud Strategy
