Cosentry Helps Applied Logic Cost-Effectively Deliver Supply Chain Management Solution to 150 Nationwide Hospitals

Managed IT Services Provide Hosting, IT Expertise and SAA16 Compliant Facility

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2016) -  Cosentry, the leading provider of IT solutions in the Midwest, today highlights Applied Logic, Inc.'s selection of Cosentry to manage and operate all hardware and applications required to host and run its healthcare Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) environment. Cosentry's fully managed IT environment has enabled Applied Logic to cost-effectively deliver supply chain services with SSAE 16 security compliance and national scalability. Access the full case study here.

Applied Logic is a hospital inventory tracking software development company based in St. Louis, MO. Its flagship solution, AVATUS, supports supply chain management for more than 150 hospitals nationwide. The healthcare organization was experiencing enormous pressure to perform more efficiently while also lowering its operational costs. To address this growing concern, Applied Logic worked to implement a SaaS-based delivery model for its supply chain, but found the endeavor cost prohibitive. 

"It simply wasn't cost effective to manage and operate our own infrastructure and facilities while maintaining a strong focus on our core business," said Mike O'Brien, Applied Logic's Chief Technology Officer. "We knew that in order to make the SaaS model work for us, we needed a partner to expertly run and manage our IT infrastructure."

Applied Logic found its partner in Cosentry and their St. Louis data center for managed IT services. To fulfill Applied Logic's software hosting needs, Cosentry provides the following:

  • Built and now manages the Applied Logic IT infrastructure on a private cloud platform.
  • Met healthcare industry regulations by housing its IT systems and data in a SSAE 16 compliant facility.
  • Provided a full team of IT experts and engineers to collaborate on software and hardware needs to deliver optimum performance today and in the future.

With Cosentry's guidance, Applied Logic was able to improve their platform performance and scalability while maintaining their current IT staffing levels. O'Brien elaborates, "The main benefit to our relationship is that it's afforded us the opportunity to provide our application through a technology delivery model that is current and strategically focused, without having to invest in additional resources or take our attention away from our core business."

Chris Scaglione, RVP, Cosentry, agrees, "By partnering with Cosentry for data center and managed IT services, healthcare organizations have the ability to cost-effectively establish new delivery models and ultimately the ability to scale and deliver improved performance and reliability to their clients," he said.
