Sanford Health, a U.S.-based healthcare provider with more than 26,000 employees, chose Vancouver’s PerfectMind to run Profile by Sanford, a new weight loss management program.
The program has 25 locations currently, with plans to open over 300 corporate stores and franchise outlets within five years.
“We need software that meets all the needs of our business model today, is easy to implement and maintain, and supports our growth,” said Russell Knoeppel, IT Director at Profile. “PerfectMind’s software was the best fit for us because it is geared specifically for businesses that service members.”
Profile engages customers in one-on-one consultations related to their physical activity and daily consumption of foods, and allows them to purchase food and devices such as body scales to track their weight loss. Profile by Sanford expects to fully transition to the new software over a four-month timeline, by July 2015, when typically a comprehensive switch to new business management software for a large member-based health organization takes about one-and-a-half to two years, according to Knoeppel.
“We are thrilled to partner with a prestigious organization like Sanford Health, the largest non-profit healthcare organization in the U.S.,” said Farid Dordar, founder of PerfectMind. “PerfectMind’s software will enable Profile by Sanford to precisely track member activities, progress and results, and support their members to meet and maintain their weight-loss goals.”
