“Do good, and do well! Therein lies the great mystery...”

The immortal words of Ferenc Kazinczy are ones we have aspired to live by ever since we embarked on this journey in 1989.

Logistics has been an enterprise since ancient times – and we began to develop specialist software on a specialist market within this business sector back when we were established, and we have continued doing so ever since.

Our sector-specific PharmaLog and StoreIS software solutions, with features developed down to the smallest detail, were made for companies where distribution is the “core business” and not just one of many activities.

I can confidently claim that if a company is in need of a system where the functionality and sophistication of the WM module is of prime importance, then our software is the best solution available on the market!

We strongly believe in intensive work performed in a climate of freedom which strives for win-win relationships – as the inscription at the entrance to the Porto stock exchange says:

“Labor et libertate urgent nos”, or “Work and freedom spur us onwards”.

OUR COMPANY IN SHORT

We help our customers enhance their competitiveness through our industry-specific solutions

Since the beginning, our profile has been the development of software that fulfils the business-critical, specialized IT needs within the logistics (the core business) of pharmaceutical wholesalers.

We plan for the long term with our customers; we have maintained close ties with each of our key customers for many years – providing them with a customised and validated system that suits their needs, and carrying out maintenance according to the revised requirements.

SZEGED Software Zrt’s customers include wholesalers with only a few terminals as well as companies that operate networks containing several remote sites and several hundred terminals.

OUR CORE VALUES

We believe in long-term partnerships and win-win relationships.

We pride ourselves on having been able to maintain partnerships with several of our customers for more than 20 years.
This accomplishment is due to the fact that over the course of our existence, we have stayed true to our core beliefs as a company:

Reliability and Stability

Quality, for us, means reliability and stability both in terms of our products as well as our company.

Our customers, wholesale pharmaceutical companies, represent the bridge between pharmaceutical manufacturers and pharmacies as well as hospitals. We know that our activity is of critical importance, which is why we simply cannot allow any disruptions to the “traffic on the bridge”.

Our systems were specifically designed for receiving and processing large amounts of data: they operate 24/7 and assist in the delivery of 1,500,000+ pharmaceutical packages each day.

reliability
Support

Support and Outstanding Customer Relations

It is our experience that support is extremely important to our customers, meaning that they should be able to get in touch with an expert at any time, who can then answer any questions related to our systems.

Our customers can always depend on us – they are never left feeling alone with their problems. They alwasy take centre stage throughout our work process.

Our daily aspiration is to create and maintain an honest ambiance of partnership, and to fulfil requests to the best of our ability. We always give more than is expected of us.

Flexibility

Our custom software meets our customer’s requirements, and we offer solutions suited to both small and straightforward warehouses and large, complex, and automated warehouses.

We are large enough to undertake projects of significant scope and to attend to our customers individually, yet small enough to react to our customers’ needs and the challenges of the market with flexibility and agility.

Flexibility
Innovative Solutions

Innovative Solutions

One of the specifics of pharmaceutical wholesale is that they operate with a relatively small, state-imposed margin.

This circumstance, in turn, requires work in each subsidiary area to be performed so that it solves tasks using cost-effective solutions.

As a result, all participants in pharmaceutical wholesale are always one step ahead of the other commercial sectors when it comes to efficiency in logistics.

Company History

Important Milestones and Events in the Life of Our Company

1989 - The Founding of Our Company

Our company was established on 7 April 1989 – its owners are Hungarian private individuals.

We received our first assignment from the Pharmaceutical Centre of Csongrád County for the deployment of an inventory management system. Since then, we have been present in the pharmaceutical wholesale logistics software market, all the while keeping abreast of and serving the constant changes.

1997 - A Breakthrough Year

In eight years, we had launched our application in 12 out of 19 county pharmaceutical centres and several private wholesalers.

However, this year proved to be our breakthrough year: We deployed a technologically redesigned version of our PharmaLog software at 6 Hungarian sites of the largest pharmaceutical wholesaler in Europe, PHOENIX Pharma.

PharmaLog a TEVA-nál

2001 - PharmaLog Deployment at TEVA

Deployment of the PharmaLog system at the Hungarian branches of the Israeli company TEVA was a multi-stage process, in coordination with a development effort at the wholesaler – as it was at TLK, one of the state-of-the-art warehouses in Europe, built in 2006.

They were able to employ a number of customised warehouse technologies for picking with our help at their 10,000 m2 warehouse.

2006 - Establishing a Subsidiary in Romania

We set up a subsidiary in Târgu Mureș under the name Pharmalog Srl with the aim of representing SZEGED Software’s products in Romania, supporting system deployment projects, and providing support for our software.

PharmaLog SAAS

2007 - PharmaLog’s SAAS version is launched

Seeing an increasing number of “small” pharmaceutical wholesalers appear on the market, we launched PharmaLog’s hosted (SaaS) version.

We offer our product as a service to partners specialising in the marketing of individual active substances or product lines who represent individual pharmaceutical manufacturers or pharmacy groups, with a complete IT architecture including deployment, system administration and control services. We were surprised as well at the keen interest it generated, continuing to this day.

Szeged Software Románia

2008 - Live System Launch in Romania

The first live system deployment in Romania at 10 sites belonging to pharmaceutical wholesaler Pharmafarm (Richter Romania).

In the following years, Bucharest wholesalers Farmexim and HelpNet would also choose PharmaLog.

2017 - Inroads into the Polish Market

With the goal of expanding our market opportunities abroad, we entered into a collaboration with Polish company Optima Systems to market our products and provide support services in Poland.

The pictures taken two years later at our company retreat organised for SZEGED Software’s 30th birthday also show our Polish, Romanian, and Hungarian staff.

Our product, MedTracS is a multilingual, smartphone-compatible, cloud-based application. With the help of our partners abroad, we have implemented it at more than 50 distributors from 5 countries.

OUR PARTNER COMPANY

Introducing Optima.Systems Sp. z o.o.

The Polish distribution of the PharmaLog system is also shaping up to be promising; our Polish colleagues have received several calls showing genuine interest, held presentations and organised reference visits to pharmaceutical wholesale companies.
