WalgreensBack to case studies
SKC’s sales team identified a unique opportunity at Walgreens and teamed up with Prysm to provide an advanced, multi-site collaboration solution to Walgreens. The need identified was to accelerate the development of a new Pharmacy application to better serve Walgreens’ millions of consumers. The solution by SKC and Prysm brought together their application development teams in Illinois and Naples, Italy. Not only was a new way to work identified, but Walgreens also utilized their existing investment in Polycom. Prysm’s Application Suite was the perfect complement and solution to Walgreens’ need to accelerate application development efforts.
The solution included a Prysm LPD 190 video wall and seven interactive displays in their Deerfield, Illinois office. These displays, the Prysm Application Suite and the Polycom Video Conferencing infrastructure allowed real-time daily “walk the wall sessions” to facilitate collaboration across the different Walgreens’ locations. Each of the development teams conducts five to six standup meetings each day to synchronize their Scrum teams. A 65” interactive display was also installed in the CIO’s office in Chicago and two 75” display’s in their development center in Naples, Italy. SKC and Prysm provided the solution to connect people across multiple geographies providing constant communications and reduced travel costs with this real-time interactive solution.
The Prysm Customer Hosted Cloud which connects all sites together was an additional requirement for the safety and security of Walgreens information. This private cloud coupled with the client site application provided power features with an interface that is easy to use. The Prysm Digital Workplace solutions allows the development teams to present and collaborate on projects in real-time, connect with colleagues around the world and target improved performance.
