Combining Strategy and Execution to Make a New World Happen
WWT's deep domain expertise cuts across business and technology. Our ability to extensively test solutions and deploy them at scale allows us to both advise and execute to create new realities for our customers.
This simple, impactful phrase — make a new world happen — encapsulates our ambition and what we do not just for our customers, but for our people and communities across the globe. It provides a rallying point that can inspire us to always strive for better.
As a company rooted in delivering outcomes, it’s important we be able to back these words up with real stories showing how we have made an impact on the world by enabling our clients to do their best work, our partners to make the right products and our employees to positively impact the communities in which they live. Here are a few of our stories.
We take a vested interest in seeing our community succeed.
Throughout our history, and like many other good corporate stewards, we have a proven track record of going above and beyond to help others.
It is important to us to create pathways to economic prosperity for others, especially those from under-resourced communities.
We partner with organizations like NPower, which plays a critical role in training diverse candidates to help launch digital careers for military veterans and young adults. Through this partnership, we've provided training, professional development, internships and job placement assistance. In many instances, we’ve hired NPower participants.
We are passionate about the success of our customers and partners.
Our ability to both advise and execute adds value to both customers and partners.
Recently, we worked collaboratively with Mercy, one of the largest hospital systems in the U.S., and Cisco to create a completely virtual healthcare center that had the power to reach more patients in more places.
WWT created a custom software application that integrates with Cisco technologies to create an easy interface for care teams and patients. Within a year of implementation, Mercy Virtual saw a 50 percent reduction in preventable readmissions and 35 percent fewer days spent in the hospital for patients in the program.
At our best, we’re helping communities and customers at the same time.
Success can be so much more than business outcomes. Our most inspired work extends well beyond a balance sheet.
Childhood cancer is a parent's worst nightmare. Navigating the complex healthcare journey that follows a cancer diagnosis further amplifies that stress. We partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to develop the "Our St. Jude" app, which seamlessly integrated digital approaches and physical experiences to reduce stress and anxiety levels for patients and their caretakers while fostering a feeling of community by delivered the right information at the right time to make the experience as frictionless as possible.
When we leverage the full extent of our capabilities, we help create a better world for all.
Facing digital disruption even before the COVID-19 pandemic limited customer interaction, Jersey Mike's Subs, one of the fastest-growing sandwich chains in the U.S., partnered with WWT to develop a next-gen digital experience for its customers, franchise owners and employees.
Our custom mobile app helped Jersey Mike's not only survive during the COVID-19 — a time when so many other restaurants have been forced to close permanently — but thrive, with mobile orders providing a lift in revenue at the most critical time, saving the jobs of 25,000 Jersey Mike’s employees. Jersey Mike’s CIO Scott Scherer said, “We saved the company with this app.”
