A global software provider focused on solving complex problems with domain experts and proven technology




Sagitec is a global software provider focused on solving complex problems with domain experts and proven technology. We provide innovative benefits-administration solutions to clients in the retirement, labor and employment, and healthcare industries. We build and support our business solutions on a continuously evolving software platform, which is integral to helping our clients adapt to change in product and service lines, communication channels, user experiences, and of course, technology. With deep industry experience in software implementation and systems integration, project management, consulting, hosting, and software support, Sagitec is a partner clients can trust to deliver mission-critical IT projects.

“We started Sagitec in 2004 because we believed the pervasive vendor strategy of ‘ripping and replacing’ enterprise software every few years was a flawed business model,” says Sagitec’s co-founder and senior partner Rick Deshler. “It didn’t warrant state and local agencies paying millions of dollars for software solutions that were destined for relatively short lifespans. We entered the market with a distinct objective: create enterprise software using a low-code development platform that withstands shifts in underlying technologies. Improve enterprise software, not by focusing on point-in-time business functionality, but by eliminating the risk of technical obsolescence.

Not many software providers have a solution that delivers a Commercially Off The Shelf (COTS) solution and can be tailored to meet requirements. Most enterprise offerings are not flexible enough to cater to frequent changes in business rules and don’t evolve with changing technology.

Our pension and labor and employment solutions allow us to deliver a COTS solution that meets most of our clients’ requirements out-of-the-box and can be configured to execute multiple business rules without complex programming.

Sagitec’s solutions are built on top of and are supported by a technically sophisticated platform of tools and services. Together, these make it possible for our clients to grow, adapt, and evolve their solutions in response to their changing environment. For example, our first client, Kansas Public Employee Retirement Systems in the US, has been successfully using our pension system for the past 10 years and our innovative, adaptable solution will allow us to continue supporting them for the next 10 years and beyond.

We have been helping benefit administrators who are inhibited by obsolete software systems, limited functionality, and a heavy reliance on manual processing. We’ve helped them modernize their capabilities, automate business processes, improve access to and reliability of data, improve customer service levels, and quickly adapt to changing rules, laws, policies, and operational needs.

In 2019, Sagitec was named part of the top 100 companies focused on making a difference in, and selling to, state and local government agencies across the United States by GovTech. The GovTech 100 companies represent a growing set of scalable, digital solutions addressing the tough, complicated problems that governments face—from healthcare and public finance to pension administration and labor and employment.

Sagitec is currently the largest provider of Microsoft Azure in the Health and Human Services industry. “By building on the Microsoft Cloud for Government platform, our clients gain a reliable, stable solution that is backed by the company’s ongoing commitment to serve the government community. These cloud-hosted solutions further support the changing federal, state, and local government requirements as well as the ongoing changes in business and technology trends in the public sector,” says David Minkkinen, Senior Partner at Sagitec. In recognition of the company’s excellence in providing public sector customers with innovative and unique solutions, Sagitec was awarded the Microsoft State and Local Government Solution Partner of the Year in 2016.
