Underpinning New Projects
One successful Allegro project that drew on Right! System’s Citrix expertise was the roll-out of 110 Windows 10 devices to all the medical assistants. Right! Systems optimized the Citrix environment to ensure that it could handle this ambitious roll-out and it was completed in just one day across all clinic sites and with no downtime.
“It was the most successful migration we have performed in our organization,” says Morris. “Without Citrix and the help of Right! Systems, we would be much more reticent about rolling out a Windows 10 environment and it would take us a lot longer to do validation and testing. Citrix allows us to be dynamic and move forward as technology changes.”
More recently, Right! Systems has been involved in a project to replace external services for out-of-hours nursing with a team of home workers. Not all of the nurses had home computers and Allegro did not want to deliver full-blown desktops to their houses so Right! Systems was called in to provide a solution.
“We needed a technology solution that would support this project and it was Right! Systems proposal to use iGel endpoint management software that allowed us to deliver a fully secure desktop environment for nurses while managing them in-house. Right! Systems also helped us with one of the biggest challenges which was to deliver our phone system to nurses at home.”
Working with Right! Systems on this project has reduced the cost of providing the expensive external nursing service. Also, the partnership has helped reduce the wages bill as Morris explains: “Having Right! Systems as a partner means we can avoid hiring a full-time person., Not having to provide that internal expertise is a tangible $75,000 a year saving that we can easily attribute to the partnership.”
Other innovations that Right! Systems has delivered to Allegro include new storage solutions with backup archiving in the cloud and an Aruba wireless network.
Allegro is about to embark on a major server infrastructure overhaul and to re-think its virtualization platform, and Right! Systems will certainly be involved.
“They are a true partner who give us the ability to bring efficient technology solutions to our organization. They see a need and they bring forth solutions,” concludes Morris.
“Having somebody who understands your business is what’s really important. They just don’t come in to deliver solutions. They take time to learn what pediatrics is all about; to understand the size of our organization and what our needs are. I know that if I bring Right! Systems in, things will get done. It’s a no brainer.”
