ATLANTA – September 16, 2020 – NPI, a trusted provider of IT sourcing services to many of the world’s most successful companies, recently completed a project with Einstein Healthcare Network to successfully streamline costs and simplify licensing across its 11,000-user Microsoft software estate. Einstein is one of several large hospital networks NPI has assisted since the start of the pandemic.
As part of its effort to control IT costs amid industry volatility, Einstein Healthcare Network turned to NPI’s Microsoft licensing and cost optimization expertise with three goals in mind: secure competitive discounts on the organization’s Enterprise Agreement renewal, simplify licensing across clinical staff and knowledge workers, and add new mobility and security functionality with the smallest possible cost increase.
NPI analysts modeled out several licensing/subscription scenarios and provided decision support services to coach the Einstein team through the process of selecting the best fit for their current and future needs. NPI also provided valuable insight into market pricing and discounts that guided the hospital’s cost objectives for its Enterprise Agreement renewal, which is a significant three-year financial commitment.
“The NPI team has superior knowledge of Microsoft licensing and cost modeling, and they excel at helping stakeholders understand the options and their pros and cons. Their well-defined methodology for optimizing EA renewals was evident throughout the project,” said Tara Matthews, CIO, Einstein Healthcare Network. “NPI’s insights transformed our EA renewal experience, and we would never go it alone again. They guided our team step-by-step through the buying process and the outcome surpassed our goals.”
