Pharmacy customers who have taken the plunge...
Life Pharmacy James Smith
"Was a pleasure to have Keiran look after us during our UFB upgrade. He was very professional and efficient and his follow up to make sure everything was running smoothly was appreciated. Great service from the Think Concepts team as usual!"
- Sammy Leung, Pharmacy Manager
Cavendish Drive Pharmacy
We helped Cavendish Drive Pharmacy with their specific needs and worked efficiently to get the cogs working!
Here’s what Peter from Cavendish Drive had to say:
“Getting a new Pharmacy ready to open requires a lot of last minute organising regarding a number of different tradespeople. Installing the IT is always one of the last tasks to be performed and Matt Leigh from Think Concepts needed to summon a huge amount of patience and organisational ability in order to get the required results.”
Call us today for a point of sale package like Peter’s.
Takapuna Day & Night Pharmacy
We love to help out with dispensary refits!
A particularly successful refit was that of Takapuna Day and Night Pharmacy. The Pharmacy was under a change of ownership and required a freshen-up. We provided a one-stop service for the technical and Pharmacy equipment needs and took the hassle away from the pharmacist!
The Pharmacy is now kitted out with a new dispensary and point of sale workstations, implemented with cost effective printing and running efficiently with a refresh of Pharmacy equipment to align with audit requirements.
We supported the Wainuiomata Pharmacy team join two Pharmacies into one location. This new location is close to Wainuiomata Medical Centre and the Pharmacy wanted to offer a gift to those who visited the Medical Centre. The gift being free WiFi! We made this possible with a wireless link. However, free WiFi wasn’t only a gift for visitors to the Medical Centre. Wainuiomata Pharmacy were also interested in leveraging the free WiFi as a means of marketing and promoting their business.
Wainuiomata Pharmacy approached us for a solution and we put our Consultant Keiran on the case. Using their current unlimited UFB (ultra-fast broadband) connection, Keiran proposed a wireless link to the new Medical Centre. This involved a one off install cost then a small fee for Think Concepts to then manage the wireless link.
Our clients had a few specifications for their free WiFi network and Keiran was able to create a solution which met these specifications. The first being time and data limits for each user and restricted access for staff. The second being a requirement for user isolation from the Pharmacy network. The Medical Centre requested no access to the WiFi for users who are sitting in the Medical Centre car park and that the network is only broadcast during opening hours.
Since the installation the Medical Centre has allowed the Pharmacy to put up a poster with the Pharmacies details and marketing on the WiFi sign in forms.
St Martins Pharmacy and Waltham Pharmacy
"I contacted Think to provide a wireless link between St Martins and Waltham Pharmacy (a distance of 1.5km). The speed and service time was remarkable. On the day scheduled for installation they set up all hardware (dishes and required cabling to get line of sight). Any issues encountered were resolved on the day, as there were issues with getting line of sight. However, these were overcome, when it’s fair to say others would have just said it’s not possible. The link works perfectly in my view and the speed of the connection is remarkable. We have had NO issues with the link since inception in November last year. I would have no hesitation in installing another with Think Concepts being my first phone call."
- Warwick Kerr, Pharmacist.
With Point to Point links we have the potential to link your multi-site business wirelessly.
When Trish from Unichem Otorohanga rang us wanting to connect her Pharmacy with her nearby by Medical Centre for a shared database for prescriptions, a wireless Point to Point link was the perfect solution. There was no line of site between the two pharmacies but Trish’s home was located on the top of a hill and had a line of site to both. Our job was to put up a satellite at Trish’s house connecting the two pharmacies together from her residential address.
Here's what Trish had to say:
“To create a wireless network link between the two pharmacies. There was no clear line of sight between the two sites, so Think Concepts ingeniously solved that problem by creating a V link with a third aerial strategically positioned at a high vantage point which had line of sight to both pharmacies. This just happened to be at our residence, so we have security knowing our network link will never be interrupted.”
Five Mile Pharmacy
Kenneth Aung Kyi was opening Five Mile Pharmacy in Queenstown. He approached us to help him set up his entire Pharmacy and our consultant Rogan happily took up the opportunity and travelled to Queenstown to make the process of opening a Pharmacy as smooth as possible for Ken.
Here’s what Kenneth had to say:
“The service provided during our Pharmacy shop fit-out has been exceptional. Rogan and the staff have helped us in ways that have exceeded our expectations and made the setup less stressful”
Life Pharmacy Matamata
