Affiliate Group of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA)
The organization had outgrown an aging and outdated single-user, on-premise database system that was at the end of its maintenance life. It was critical to move data to a modern reliable system without disruption. Simetra created a customized MS Access system interface using a Microsoft SQL server backend. Our team created a cloud-based system allowing for multi-user access with secure automatic backup. We worked with the organization to create custom categories of contacts, improving usability and data quality. Complete data was migrated successfully maintaining integrity and accuracy of historical data. The new system enables reports and data to be delivered via MS Excel, MS Word or PDF. Click for details
