Healthcare Services Provider chooses ATLATLCategory: Works
This healthcare provider turned to ATLATL with a challenge with their digital transformation.
As a healthcare provider, most of their customers are experiencing aches, pains, and stressful personal situations that make the front-desk employees' work more challenging.

Because of the uniqueness of the process, out-of-box solutions provided a partial solution.
Also, because of the COVID19 pandemic, the organization experienced an, never seen before, increase in services demand of 200%.

That's why the healthcare provider turned to ATLATL. The mission was to build an ecosystem capable of providing the required features to make the process faster, better, and less complex.
