WFT Cloud Surpasses a Key Milestone of over 300 Customers Using its SAP Cloud Hosting Platform


Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) December 18, 2013

Wharfedale Technologies announced today that it surpassed a key milestone of supporting over 300 customers on its WFT Cloud platform. This includes enterprise to small organizations and SAP development partners. Since 2010, WFT Cloud has serviced customers from over 139 countries globally. WFT Cloud provides its customers substantial benefits in terms of availability, flexibility and lower overall cost.

WFT Cloud was established in 2010 to provide more flexible and cost effective options for SAP customers. It is the first SAP certified cloud hosting and services partner. WFT Cloud runs out of data center in Philadelphia, PA that is SSAE 16 Type II certified and runs on state-of-the-art infrastructure. Its operations utilize best practices associated with SAP and Cloud computing to deliver highest standards in control, compliance and security and meet stringent SLAs for SAP customers. With partnership with Verizon Terremark, WFT Cloud also extends hosting solutions that require a secondary site or need more geographical diversity.

Typical use cases for WFT Cloud customers range from hosting and support of an entire SAP landscape with multiple environments to hybrid cloud solutions that deliver substantial cost efficiencies for non-production environments while keeping production infrastructure on-premise. Other scenarios include on-demand availability of project or sandbox environment for testing or development and POC type services for new technologies such as SAP HANA.

WFT Cloud builds upon the extensive experience of WFT professionals that average over 20 years of experience with SAP infrastructure. Rather than being a generic “platform” provider, WFT provides access to depth of expertise and experience that is unparalleled in the industry. As such, it can provide meaningful insights into the intricacies of working with SAP and assist companies with development of SAP applications or maximize operational efficiencies.

One of the many advantages of a WFT Cloud solution is a proprietary library of over 800 templates that represent all common variations of SAP landscapes and the respective versions of various components. This library, called SCIF (SAP Cloud Image Factory), allows WFT Cloud to bring up any landscape that is required for that particular solution in a matter of minutes and not days. This represents great flexibility and delivers efficiencies to WFT Cloud customers.

One of the very first WFT Cloud customers, Jacob Chacko from Belgium commented ..the speed at which we were delivered a working SAP system was phenomenal, the response and technical expertise is unparalleled. It was a pleasant experience working with WFT Cloud and we wish we knew them earlier. I would definitely recommend them.

Mahesh Reddy, CTO of WFT Cloud further comments, Customers around the world have realized the benefits of accelerated time to value because of the affordable, secure, scalable, and flexible SAP on Cloud solution that we offer. The bundled SAP BASIS support is a key differentiator which eliminates the need to maintain skilled in-house SAP professionals to manage the technical infrastructure hosting the SAP landscape.

simplifyMD EHR Customers Achieve Critical Meaningful Use Stage 1 Milestone

Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

Medical practices eager to receive up to $ 44,000 in incentive payments from the federal government are looking to their electronic health records (EHR) vendors for guidance to complete the attestation process. While many vendors cannot offer the support required, leaving doctors and medical staff to tackle the complex process, simplifyMD has proactively engaged with customers who want to attest to ensure both success and prompt delivery of incentive funds.

simplifyMD has established a Customer Attestation Care Program, focusing the companys EHR consultants on educating physicians on how to satisfy reporting requirements.

The result: 100% of simplifyMD customers who chose to file for attestation have completed the process, with many already in receipt of their incentive payments.

We began our attestation process in July and by mid-December, all 69 eligible physicians in our practice had met the requirements to attest for Meaningful Use Stage 1, says Steven J. Morris, MD, FACP, a managing partner at Atlanta Gastroenterology Associate. We received our incentive payment on December 31!

simplifyMD provided the reporting and tools necessary to attest for the required measures, Dr. Morris continues. We doubt we would have achieved such rapid and complete success with any other partner for so complex an undertaking.

The simplifyMD EHR mirrors a practices existing charts and forms, while preserving their workflow. This speeds deployment and facilitates adoption by creating a simple experience with a strong ROI without disrupting practice operations.

Unlike our streamlined implementation process, attesting for meaningful use is fairly complex, explains Michael Brozino, CEO of simplifyMD. We are committed to our customers success, and knew this was a critical milestone for them. By making this support a priority for our team, the physicians and practices we serve were able to simply and quickly achieve remarkable results.

Knoxville Neurologys Jim Campbell, practice manager, praises simplifyMDs commitment to customers. The one-on-one service simplifyMD provided to Knoxville Neurology allowed us to meet our Meaningful Use attestation goal. Its the best computer vendor support Ive experienced in my 40 years in healthcare!

Meaningful Use incentive payments for December 2012 set new records, with eligible providers collecting more than $ 1.2 billion, according to Healthcare IT News. The publication reports that as of December 2012, a total of $ 10.3 billion in Meaningful Use incentive payments have been distributed since the program’s inception.
