DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's economy, who's talking about growth? To start the conversation, two powerful partners have teamed up to equip entrepreneurial independent pharmacists with the tools and support to grow profitably in any economy. Parata Systems today announced that it will be the exclusive presenting sponsor of the 2012 Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference, hosted by Pharmacy Development Services (PDS) Feb. 23-25 in Orlando, Fla.
"Parata automation delivers the one thing pharmacists need most — time. So, it was natural synergy to align with PDS, a group that is doing ground-breaking work to help pharmacists define how to leverage their time and resources to meet their service and growth goals," said Tom Rhoads, CEO of Parata Systems, who will address attendees at the conference's opening ceremony.
PDS is a consulting services company dedicated to helping independent and community pharmacies enhance business operations through education, coaching, mentoring and innovation, as well as by challenging the status quo. This is the eighth annual PDS Growth Conference and Parata Systems is the first-ever presenting sponsor.
Each year, PDS hosts the three-day Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference for pharmacy owners looking to gain more control of their businesses by driving effective growth strategies. The power of the PDS model is the mentorship and accountability to execute ideas, as well as the energy attendees gain from the conference, according to CEO and founder Dan Benamoz.
"PDS is pleased to have an innovative company like Parata Systems present our annual Growth Conference," Benamoz said. "As CEOs, top salespersons and clinicians, pharmacists cannot drive a growth strategy until they free time and energy to do so; automation like Parata's offers a proven solution."
Parata Systems' presenting sponsorship will showcase how next-generation automation can minimize pharmacist time in dispensing, empowering entrepreneurial pharmacies to maximize opportunities for growth. Parata's strategic deployment of automation creates the added capacity to expand operations in a finite footprint without adding staff, while improving safety and accuracy over manual processes.
The Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference is the single largest gathering of high-performance pharmacy owners. The 2012 event will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando.
