An immediately useful data warehouse solution - EHDP guarantees successful operation and data importing. Many organizations spend years developing data warehouse software. Often with disappointing results. We deliver guaranteed better performance. Now.

Handshake Simplified contracting and lower costs - The costs for complex software systems can be high. Sometimes very high. There are typically high direct and indirect development costs, and hassles and headaches for all involved. Ongoing maintenance costs can also be high. Vitalnet is a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) data warehouse solution, so the initial and ongoing costs are lower and predictable. Vitalnet is licensed on an annual flat-rate basis to an agency, business, or individual.

A comprehensive service - Customization, setup, data importing, and other services needed for project success are included with each license. We will make needed changes and modifications to meet your needs, usually at no extra cost.

Guaranteed project success - A large proportion of software development projects fail to meet user needs. Even if successful, most software becomes obsolete in a few years with advances in technology. In contrast, Vitalnet software is guaranteed to meet your needs. And Vitalnet has a proven track record for adapting to new technologies and requirements.
