  • Overview



    Perficient believes that Customer Experience (CX) and Digital Transformation are the defining strategic imperatives of our day. 


    Our full-service offering is flexible and designed to tackle our customers’ ever-changing, ever-increasing business and clinical challenges, making sure our execution never fails the strategic vision. These things are not mutually exclusive; we see them as one. Guiding choices, inspiring opportunities and fueling the customer experience takes clarity. But an increasingly noisy, complex healthcare environment often clouds the vision of marketers today. The Age of the Customer is here to stay – for many healthcare organizations, a “make or break” environment where every consumer, patient or member interaction shapes your brand, day in, day out.  Make or break . . . We are proud to say we’re skilled at the former.


    Our network of offices across North America, as well as locations in India and China, will give you the opportunity to spread your wings, too.


    Perficient is proud to be publicly recognized as a “Top Workplace” year after year. This is due, in no small part, to our entrepreneurial attitude and collaborative spirit that sets us apart and keeps our colleagues impassioned, driven, and fulfilled.
