The company founded by Bruno Lévêque is entering a new phase of its development and aims to become one of the world's top 3 online store creation solutions by 2020.
This challenge was entrusted to Alexandre Eruimy, who for the past two years had been head of business development and who knows the forces and dynamics of Prestashop. While accelerating business, innovation is at the heart of this new stage, a new blockchain-based PrestaTrust solution illustrates this strategy.

This is the story of 22-year-old medical student Amol Utrankar, who works in a Tennessee University Medical Center. In order to obtain the medical file of a new patient from his former hospital, Amol must make an administrative request, via a dedicated form, to return by fax. This is where Amol's moment of solitude comes in: he does not know how to use a fax.
And he is not the only one, as the American site CNBC reports. Thousands of future doctors across the United States are facing technologies from another century – in the strict sense of the word. Because in the health industry, pagers and fax machines are still very much used, while they have disappeared everywhere.

The fax is also perceived as safe and secure, or at least considered as such under the regulations that govern the sharing of medical data. Finally, even if the digitization of medical data is started, the lack of possible interoperability between the tools used by different hospitals can also be a barrier to the adoption of digital systems. According to some professionals, the fax could have many years to live before him.
But in addition to the frustration of using obsolete tools, young students know that a better adapted technology could allow them to save precious time for the future. condition of their patients. This is undoubtedly what tech giants, like Apple or Amazon, who are no longer hiding their intentions in the health sector think.
