Melbourne & Perth, AUSTRALIA, March 22, 2022
StrongRoom AI and EasyDose announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which StrongRoom AI will acquire EasyDose. The acquisition builds on StrongRoom AI’s continued national expansion and lays the foundation to move into the Western Australian pharmacy sector.
“We are thrilled to announce the next step in our strategic expansion plan,” says Max Mito, CEO of StrongRoom AI. “EasyDose has a meaningful impact on their customers’ workflow by simplifying the process for dispensing opioid-replacement therapy. This in turn has a significant flow-on effect in reducing adverse events and making medication supply safer, which really aligns with our mission here at StrongRoom AI.”
As part of this acquisition, StrongRoom AI brings on board Noel Fosbery, Phil Willis and Steve Verkerk, founders of EasyDose. “When we started EasyDose nine years ago, we were looking for an economical solution for our own pharmacies plus a few friends. We are proud to say that we have been able to deliver really important efficiencies to all our clients. When StrongRoom AI approached us to join them, we were really excited to see that they had the capacity to bring to life many of the concepts that we had dreamed of but couldn’t afford to develop. I’m happily joining this dynamic company of young innovators who are willing to listen to us old fossils!” says Noel Fosbery, Director of EasyDose and Pharmacist proprietor. Fosbery, Willis and Verkerk will be joining StrongRoom AI as Vice Presidents of Western Australia.
“Throughout the acquisition our key priority is our customers,” says Mito. “We want to do everything we possibly can to ensure a smooth transition across to StrongRoom AI and will be working closely with all EasyDose customers on a timeline suitable for each individual site.”
The transition process is expected to occur over the next 18 months and aims to provide EasyDose customers with a consolidated pharmacy platform including electronic S8 Controlled Drug Register, pharmacotherapy (OTP/CPOP) and staged supply modules.
