Company History

“an invaluable tool for pharmacists”
Company History Founded in 1982 by the grandsons of the original Sam McLernon, McLernon Computers has built on the reputation founded by the packaging company by not only meeting the needs of their community pharmacy customers, but by anticipating them.

The launch of the Richardson Genie system in 1982 heralded a revolution in the way that pharmacists worked, though its 32kb of memory is derisory when compared to the awesome capacity of today’s mobile phones and laptops.

This was followed by the Alchemist, which included a host of new facilities such as tele-ordering, stock control and price enquiry systems.

Ten years ago MPS (McLernons Pharmacy System) first appeared in dispensaries across Ireland and this Windows-based software contains extensive drug information, full dispensary stock control, debtor accounts and management reporting.

In 2009 another programme joined the MPS suite of products – MPS Retail, a fully-integrated EPOS system which takes you trill, back office reports and stock inventory and puts them under one roof.

And the final product, MPS Enterprise, our head office software for both dispensing and retail systems became the final piece of the jigsaw to give you overall control over all of your business.

We are very proud of the fact that we are a family business, mirroring a great many of our customers in this regard, and that many of our staff have been with us for over 20 years.

We are proud of the links we have with the pharmacy community throughout the country, and nowhere is this better evidenced than in the fact that we have donated pharmacy systems to all six Schools of Pharmacy (Trinity College, University College Cork, The College of Surgeons, Queens University and the University of Ulster at Coleraine). We see the encouragement of innovation among practitioners and learning among students to be intrinsic to the relationships that we have with pharmacy.

We have been recipients of the Investors in People award for the past six years, underlining our commitment to our staff and their training and development. We believe that by doing so we are ensuring that our customers will receive the best service and support available.

We are also a 'Preferred Supplier' to Retail Excellence Ireland the largest retail industry body in Ireland, with over 1,000 leading retail companies who operate over 11,000 stores in the Irish market.
