About Mayo Clinic
Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit medical organization focused on integrated clinical practice, education and research, and providing expert care to those in need. Founded in 1864, Mayo Clinic has established a reputation as one of the premier health care institutions in the United States. The organization currently operates three medical centers in the US, located in Rochester (Minnesota), Jacksonville (Florida), and Phoenix (Arizona). These centers employ over 65,000 workers and treated over 1.3 million people in 2019. Mayo Clinic spends $660 million annually funding research projects committed to the understanding of disease processes, best clinical practices, and translation of laboratory findings to clinical practice.
Due to Mayo Clinic’s large scale of operation, it was important they utilized an integrated POS system. While previously using various providers, they experienced challenges with analytics, security, and payment. This decentralized system prevented Mayo from controlling their menus, discounts and gift cards from one head office, making the analysis and comparison of data across locations a nightmare. Decentralization also created several security hurdles for the company. Mayo used a declining balance payment option, which made payment more complicated and increased the length per transaction.
The Volanté Solution
Volanté provided Mayo with an enterprise Point-of-Sale solution that allowed them to centrally manage all locations. By using a system with thousands of Cost Centers, they are now able to manage menus and gather data across all hospitals, to be reconciled. Integration was easy with Volanté’s mixed Linux/Windows topology and Mayo’s existing system.

The transition of POS systems (Micros to Volanté) here on the Jacksonville Campus for the Mayo Clinic was a great learning experience for all parties involved. Looking back on the months that have passed since the transition I cannot express how grateful we are to have the Volanté Support Team in assisting us day in and day out.
