The Brabants Apothekers Forum (BAF) is a trade association for Flemish Brabants pharmacists and their teams. They support their members in the exercise of their profession by an efficient service, proactive professional development services and optimal representation.
Ann Geuens, Head of Tarification, explains why they are using Cloud2be.
"When we decided to start to work with EASI Financials, we had to choose to adapt our own IT Infrastructure (and thus invest in new hardware), or to make the software run on Cloud2be. Our organisation does not have an operational IT department. Owing to a shortage of in-house IT skills, we were faced with the difficult question of deciding what kind of infrastructure we should invest in. On top of that, our infrastructure is composed by a mix of different technologies (Linux, IBM Power i, Windows). In the context of this complicated situation, it seemed almost impossible for us to know what would be the best choice."
"In the light of a detailed analysis, Cloud2be was seen to be the only cloud provider that could offer us a tailor-made cloud solution."
"We now rely on Cloud2be: consequently, we are sure that we can always have the latest technologies without the need to have in-house expertise for this purpose. Other major advantages are:
- we pay only for the capacity we actually use
- we don’t have to occupy ourselves with administration and support
- backups and upgrades take place automatically, …
We selected Cloud2be because as well as proposing a technical solution, it also contributed ideas and really helped us from a strategic perspective. Unlike other cloud providers, Cloud2be is operated by genuine experts, who are close at hand and can actually be reached, and help us to make the right decisions. We also think it is important for our data to be located in our home country and that their confidentiality stays guaranteed."
