Customer Snapshot: Business Model

ValueOptions is a health improvement company that serves more than 32 million individuals. On behalf of employers, health plans and government agencies, it manages innovative programs and solutions that directly address the challenges the health care system faces today.

The Challenge

Meeting the Demand for Data

ValueOptions wanted to meet the increased demand (both from customers and from internal managers) for data-driven decision-making. This meant getting information to decision-makers faster and more efficiently – all while handling increased data volumes and keeping costs in check.

Enter SAP

The Best Choice

ValueOptions looked to SAP for best-in-class business intelligence functionality and a single, multichannel platform for business intelligence support. With ad hoc reporting, high-quality self-service dashboards and reporting tools, and a strong portfolio of offerings to add further business value, SAP was the best choice.

Better Business

Faster and Easier

Having chosen the SAP solutions, ValueOptions (and its customers) have been particularly impressed by the speed-of-thought ad hoc reporting. Self-service dashboards make ease-of-use a strong factor as well.

Better Business: Benefits

Measurable Benefits

ValueOptions has saved an estimated $3 million in staffing costs over 5 years and improved deal win rate by 44%. And the need for individual ad hoc support has been reduced by 39%. Ready access to data has helped ValueOptions improve call center performance, strengthen provider relations, increase financial visibility, and enable better decisions.

Better Business: Run Simple
