St. Croix Systems, the leading provider of capital asset lifecycle management solutions for the healthcare industry, and CIBER, Inc. a leading international systems integrator, today announced an alliance to cooperatively help healthcare providers identify and implement strategies and solutions to increase optimization and safety of enterprise assets.
The alliance combines St. Croix Systems’ Capital Asset Lifecycle Management suite (CALM), a set of applications that enables healthcare providers to gain visibility and control over the management and maintenance, movement, and safety of all facility and equipment assets—from acquisition through retirement, and CIBER’s consulting experience in developing and implementing enterprise asset management, service management, supply chain, and enterprise resource planning solutions.
The two organizations are coming together at a time when healthcare providers are seeking an integrated approach to optimize hospital assets through standardized processes that enable effective preventive maintenance, improved asset tracking and utilization, integrated safety measures, and better planning and acquisition decisions. St. Croix Systems and CIBER offer clients software solutions and services to automate disparate process to increase asset and care giver productivity while reducing costs.
“Our healthcare clients want solutions that more effectively manage and maintain their capital assets to increase lifecycle and resource productivity,” said Robert Dickey, Strategist, CIBER, Inc. “Working with St. Croix Systems we will deliver a solution that combines technology and process automation and allows our clients to leverage and protect the significant investments they are making in assets and equipment.”
