SVA is an extension of our team and has contributed to our early success.

THE STORY

Exact Sciences was referred to SVA Consulting when they were a startup medical device company. In lightning speed of 19 months, Exact Sciences grew from 36 employees to over 700, moving from developing Cologuard, their pre-screening test for colon rectal cancer, to human trials, FDA approval and then to the international marketplace.

THE RESULTS

Exact Sciences identified they needed to rapidly create systems that would enable them to meet global demand for their colorectal cancer screening test, Cologuard. SVA Consulting created a plan of attack to accomplish this, and have systems fully operational and integrated in under 2 years’ time. This significant build included systems for all facets of the Exact Sciences business and included the design and build of a Private Cloud Data Center where these systems live.

SVA Consulting used a management technique known as “Program Management” to coordinate and facilitate this build. At any given time, SVA Consulting manages 30 + dedicated team members, 10+ ecosystem partners and over 25 discrete projects. The facilitation of this effort and the management of the interdependencies between all of the projects and work tracks required executive oversight and vision to complete. In August 2014, Exact Sciences, on the heels of their FDA approval of Cologuard, successfully launched business operations and is currently providing Cologuard to both United States, European markets and the Middle East.
