B.O.S. Controller Keeps Major Pharmacy Filling Prescriptions During Hurricane Charley Outage

Pure TCP/IP Controller Help Avert Disaster

Phoenix, Arizona, August 26, 2004 - "When Hurricane Charley hit Florida, it knocked out two pharmacies--one in Naples and one in Longwood, outside of Orlando. We were able to utilize the B.O.S. (Better On-line Solutions) controller via the phone lines in Naples, but there was no phone service to the pharmacy in Orlando. I drove the controller to a dentist's office, five miles away, and hooked up the controller to the phone. We were up and running in a timely fashion, printing Rx labels and prescription documents so that we could get medicine out to those who needed it," reports the Manager of IT Operations of a large Florida-based pharmaceutical company.

"The B.O.S. controllers saved the day! Our competition could not get this done. They had to run their operations out of the Tampa office and drive everything back to Orlando," he says. "We could have done this from a home, hotel, or anywhere with a dial tone."

The company services nursing homes and skilled care facilities in 36 states and has B.O.S. controllers in pharmacies from Florida to Hawaii.

"When I saw the hurricane approaching, I got the B.O.S. controllers," the IT Manager recounts. "We were able to hook up four devices to the controller and do all of our work over the phone lines. I could not do this with my old controllers from another vendor, and am recommending that we replace all of them with B.O.S. controllers."
