Overview: The OPSM Group management decided to focus on optical retailing and grow by acquisition; the target being to expand to 1000 retail stores by 2006. This involved purchasing a large number of retail outlets, each with legacy technology and computing systems. The company needed dynamic, real-time access to the Focus database to order stock, pass on prescription requests and view sales information. OPSM also wanted to implement a CRM database so that staff in the retail stores could obtain and input up-to-the-minute information about customers. It was decided that a VPN offered the most cost-effective and scalable networking solution.
