QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 19, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Familiprix inc. continues along the path of technological progress, announcing its purchase of all intellectual property (IP) rights for PraxisLab, a laboratory software. Once this transaction is finalized, Familiprix will enjoy unrestricted use of the technology contained in this laboratory management software developed by ZoomMed, off the banner.
In 2011, Familiprix had begun developing its own software – called "Priorx" – and went on to acquire limited ownership of the IP rights in PraxisLab in 2013. Familiprix now has its own centre of technology expertise, staffed by an experienced IT development team and a training team, with a technical support call centre.
Albert Falardeau, President of Familiprix, declared, "Since our Priorx software was first developed, we have seen our pharmacists' enthusiasm for switching to this lab management software. Our acquisition of the PraxisLab IP rights ensures sustained growth for our company."
Falardeau concluded, "Familiprix has a clear business plan, and we are working to control the future of our group of independent pharmacists."
Familiprix's business model is unique in that this limited company is pharmacist-owned. Familiprix employs more than 5,000 people across its network of more than 340 outlets, maintaining a presence in all regions of Quebec, as well as in New Brunswick. Familiprix ranks among the 150 most admired companies in Quebec (Source: Étude Réputation, Léger Marketing, 2014).
