CHALLENGE:

Ivy Tech Community College (ITCC) offers 70+ academic programs and classes in 75+ of Indiana’s communities. The global pandemic put unexpected demand on the school to procure and distribute PPE material to students, faculty and staff. 

 

SOLUTION:

We consulted with ITCC and quickly developed a plan to source the product needed and create a custom web-based solution for procurement. This solution, which had to be deployed with speed and accuracy, needed to:

  • Build a 24/7 eStore within weeks of global pandemic.
  • Stock custom-branded N95 masks, face shields, lab jackets, rubber gloves, hand sanitizer, sani-wipes, etc.
  • Provide 24/7 access to these products to more than 300 unique users, compromised of faculty and staff to support their 70,000 students.
  • Added an approval process to manage inventory and ensure distribution.
  • Provided direct shipping to more than 70,000 students, faculty and staff spread over 22 individual campus locations.
  • Helped navigate a complicated medical supply chain.

 

RESULTS: 

Here’s how our performance and approach improved the client’s results:

  • Within weeks of the global pandemic making its impact, Ivy Tech had a 24/7 storefront, stocked with PPE in place. This kept classrooms safe so they could continue their mission of educating the next generation of leaders in the state of Indiana.
