The Challenge

Building the directory is a manual process of collecting updated physician information.
Updating the layout of the print file. In addition to the labor required by the client, there was no master database of information. It was just entered into the print file itself.
Client is concerned that not all employees are technologically savvy to be able to navigate an ecommerce site and be able to apply a coupon code.
