East Moline, Illinois (PressExposure) February 21, 2011 -- YASH Technologies, a leading technology services and outsourcing partner for global companies, today announced the successful upgrade of Boston Medical Center's implementation of SAP solutions to the SAP® ERP application 6.0.The upgrade was successfully completed on budget and in less than four months.
With more than 30,215 admissions and 844,184 patient visits in 2010, SAP solutions are an integral part of daily business processes for Boston Medical Center. Upgrading its platform to the newest release of SAP ERP would allow Boston Medical Center to remain compatible with SAP's release strategy and further ensure optimal maintenance and support.
"We have worked with YASH previously on a variety of initiatives involving SAP solutions, and once again YASH has delivered another successful implementation in terms of timelines and budgetary concerns," said Annie Choquette, associate director, Financial Information Systems, Boston Medical Center. "We have been able to measure a 72 percent increase in our system performance. YASH has won us over and over with its high degree of professionalism and proficiency of the system implementation knowledge."
Prior to the successful go-live implementation in November, YASH began the initiative by utilizing PathFinder, its proprietary pre-upgrade assessment tool that mitigates unforeseen risks, provides fixes via road maps, and speeds upgrade implementation cycles. It provides precision details for deeper, more thorough impact analysis. Based on those results, YASH migrated Boston Medical Center's operating system from a 32-bit platform to a 64-bit platform to better support its 500 users. YASH utilized SAP best practices as well as proprietary methodologies for the implementation, which sped the realization of benefits for Boston Medical Center. The entire upgrade was completed within 19 weeks, including two weeks of post-live support and two full payroll cycle tests.
"We are pleased to have been selected once again as the strategic partner for this upgrade,"said Kevin Jansen, executive vice president, YASH. "With SAP ERP 6.0, Boston Medical Center can stay focused on delivering exceptional health care to its patients and community, while mitigating risks and lowering operational costs."
