Why is Ericpol the right choice for you?

The stone, iron, coal and steam ages all belong to mankind’s history. From ‘the age of the atom’ a hundred years ago or so, we have entered a completely new period in the development of civilization: the age of information. We don’t look at seeds as a natural phenomenon. We analyse them from the point of view of information resources thanks to which a new plant will grow. Similarly, DNA code is not primarily seen as a natural phenomenon but a collection of information necessary for the growth and development of every living creature. The i-evolution refers to the reality we live in and to the area of our activity. Ericpol deals with information and information technologies. We are a company whose biggest capital is its intelligence and innovative capability. Our work, its results and all our actions are subject to the laws of evolution – a continuous transformation towards perfect form and content.

Do business with us! ‘Success in business is not just about having good products or services – it also, and especially, hinges upon ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction.’ This motto captures Ericpol’s approach and way of doing business. Our mission is to provide excellent and affordable engineering teleinformatic expertise. That means meeting the needs of each client through on-time and no-risk delivery of just the right services and technologies. By doing this, we help customers reduce costs and build long-term partnerships.

Healthcare Ericpol has harnessed its IT experience in close cooperation with the Polish National Health Fund (NFZ) and College of Family Physicians in Poland (KLRwP), to produce drEryk - a programme for medical practices. drEryk met the expectations of physicians by improving the work of medical personnel while also increasing the quality of patient services. The advantages of drEryk were appreciated by the Centre for Quality Monitoring in Healthcare and drEryk remains the only application in Poland to receive positive feedback from the Centre. The second product called ‘ErLab’ is an innovative system for secure communication between laboratories and medical centres in Poland. Ericpol also developed a mobile version of the eWUŚ application.
