“Good, good, good . . . good vibrations.” Remember when you used to sing that ditty in the shower as you got ready for work? Now, you’re trying to come up with a plausible excuse to call in sick, which is tough if you’re the boss or the only pharmacist on duty that day.

In addition, our software enhancement teams develop and troubleshoot throughout the entire development process; a method that produces quality updates faster and provides a level of transparency in what we do and how we do it.
