Prodigo Solutions realizes substantial business process improvements through cloud migration with Expedient
"With Expedient, we get a service delivery partner with a ton of VMware experience, who provides us with a turnkey solution at a predictable monthly cost."- Tony Bollinger, Operations Manager, Prodigo Solutions
Spun out of the University of Pittsburgh’s Medical Center (UPMC) in July 2014 to enable healthcare providers to optimize spend and supply chain processes via contract automation, Prodigo Solutions, Inc. now counts some of the nation’s leading hospitals as its customers. The software provider develops solutions that address several acute challenges in healthcare procurement such as contract management, contract compliance, request & purchase order management, and automation of digital supply chain transactions. The utility of Prodigo’s solutions is especially attractive to the largest-scale integrated delivery network (IDNs) in the country, as Prodigo counts more than 20% of these massive healthcare systems as customers.
To support the data and IT demands of its customers while also facilitating further revenue growth via new customer acquisition, Prodigo knew it needed an infrastructure partner with turnkey service capabilities and top-tier technical expertise.
Prodigo’s biggest challenge was the time it took to onboard new clients; the existing infrastructure provider’s legacy data center environment hindered Prodigo’s onboarding process, as it often required months of work to launch each new customer deployment.
Once Prodigo made the decision to virtualize its data center using VMware, Bollinger knew he wanted a cloud services provider with demonstrated experience supported by proven processes and procedures. Prodigo began its evaluation with several hyperscale cloud providers, but ultimately didn’t like the one-size-fits-all nature of hyperscale offerings.
