Jitterbit Data Integration Bridges Cloud Computing Chasm for AWPRx

Online Pharmacy Management Company Relies on Custom Integration to Support Critical Pharmaceutical Management Decision

OAKLAND, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/19/09 -- Jitterbit, the leading provider of open source integration software, today announced a successful custom integration solution for AWPRx, a leading online workers compensation pharmacy management company. AWPRx relies on Jitterbit's award-winning open source integration software to bridge on-premise databases with its cloud computing environment running on Force.com allowing applications, databases and on-demand systems to seamlessly share information, leading to improved data management for all of AWPRx's important constituents.

"AWPRx relies on a mix of physical and non-physical infrastructure to manage our enormous member base and pharmacy entities," said Ray Hudaihed, chief architect for AWPRx. "Before Jitterbit, we struggled to handle the large volumes of data coming from literally hundreds of sources through multiple entry points. Jitterbit gives us one portal for all of our data to flow through, which is quickly analyzed and pushed to the appropriate destination. The result is improved and streamlined processing of data, allowing us to focus on our business."

AWPRx is affiliated with 95 percent of the nation's pharmacies to help workers compensation beneficiaries conveniently fill prescriptions and manage claims in a pure Web environment. The organization's infrastructure is moving to become 100 percent cloud based by the end of 2009, which has offered its own complexities and challenges with existing systems. Using Jitterbit's open source data integration software, AWPRx saves more than 80 percent of its allocated integration budget alone, and has seen a 300 percent return on investment (ROI) within the first year of implementation.

"Jitterbit's technology was not only easy to learn but also showed significant improvements over our previous investment in Cast Iron. In addition to the dollar and time savings, Jitterbit benefits our company in ways we didn't anticipate. Once implemented, it was like integration on auto-pilot allowing our IT team to refocus efforts on new areas for innovation," said Hudaihed. "Jitterbit bridges technology from multiple vendors, complementing our Web services initiatives and improving our overall online offering. We expect to find new ways to leverage Jitterbit across the organization as time goes on."

"On-demand applications provide unique benefits that are attractive in today's economy, but they also present challenges for companies who are just starting to make the transition and who don't want to abandon their existing systems," said Sharam Sasson, CEO of Jitterbit. "Jitterbit provides easy, customizable and affordable business integration solutions that ease the shift to cloud computing, without compromising its promise of open accessibility and rapid ROI."
