Catapult Health Switches To Asset Panda, Experiences Record Productivity
“The delivery of preventative care and basic primary care in America is broken,” David Michel, founder, and chief executive officer of Catapult Health told the Dallas Business Journal. Only 20 percent of Americans receive preventative care each year, so he started Catapult Health to bring preventative care to Americans, by offering check-ups at workplaces around the country.
But at the same time that the company was empowering Americans to take care of themselves, Catapult Health was struggling with a serious problem of its own.
With only 400 employees serving the entire United States, the company is comparably small to other companies that pursue nationwide missions. It needs to be able to move quickly and not get bogged down in getting from point A to point B. The life-saving medical equipment the company uses isn’t cheap, and machines must travel to workplaces around the country without getting lost or broken. Catapult Health needed a better strategy for keeping track of devices that can cost as much as $50,000 each.
Before Asset Panda, Catapult Health employees needed to figure out the logistics all on their own. Now, they can log which equipment is going where and when with the click of a button. The small company can rely on technology to take care of asset location while its workforce focuses on the company’s core mission: to “empower individuals to improve their health.”
When I first started with Catapult, this information was all over the place. Sometimes it was on spreadsheets, but it could also be just somebody’s knowledge that something was at a certain location. We were always asking, "Where is this? Are you sure?" but now we know for sure, and all that information is in one place.
