Multisite Migration | Mission Pharmacal & Pantheon

MIGRATING 30+ SITES TO THE PANTHEON PLATFORM

Mission Pharmacal Company is a privately held pharmaceutical company based in San Antonio, TX which has dedicated seven decades towards improving lives of families with high-quality products. Mission Pharmacal focuses on using the purest of ingredients to offer a wide range of innovative prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Today, the company continues to lead in therapeutic areas including women’s health, urology, pediatrics, dermatology, primary care, and long-term care. 

The Problems:

Mission Pharmacal’s complicated infrastructure made it difficult to manage over 30 sites, including: 

  • Mission Pharmacal’s large, single codebase made it difficult to manage over 30 sites. 

  • Due to hosting environment constraints, it became difficult for Mission to manage their growing list of brand sites.

  • Dozens of sites sitting on a single codebase contributed to issues of resource allocation and site downtime

  • Limits imposed by the hosting environment increased the time and technical overhead when deploying new product sites. 

  • Working with multiple vendors, site owners, and managers became a challenge as there was no ability to limit access to the codebase - it was all or none. 

The Solutions:

LevelTen migrated Mission’s more than 30 sites under a single, optimized hosting platform -- Pantheon Enterprise
