Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 25, 2007
Lombardi® (http://www.lombardi.com), a leader in business process management (BPM) software, and Attevo, a global business and information technology consulting firm, today announced that they have partnered to jointly market and sell the strategic advisory and consulting services from Attevo combined with Lombardi's award-winning Teamworks® and Blueprint™ BPM products. The strategic partnership will enable the companies to expedite process improvement efforts for global food and consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers.
"We have spent decades understanding and improving business processes for our clients, helping them to streamline operations and reduce supply chain costs. Our clients want more than studies, they want implementation help to realize recommended improvements," said Lorine DeHuff, Partner at Attevo. "Lombardi's BPM software allows us to help our clients implement these process improvements quickly, and achieve measurable returns, without compromising the accuracy or usability of the completed solution."
Attevo will be utilizing Lombardi's BPM software suite to help navigate the complexity of client organizations and the distributed nature of their operations while shortening analysis time. Specifically, Lombardi Blueprint allows Attevo to quickly and accurately map client processes and encourage collaboration between process owners and participants while Lombardi Teamworks enables Attevo to help their clients avoid the risk that their process improvement initiatives become a "study on the shelf." For new processes to be adopted and the benefits to be realized, the processes have to be accessible, clear and easy to communicate. The value to customers is how quickly they can adopt their industry's best processes, and how effectively they can organize themselves around those changes.
"Attevo has a reputation of quickly delivering high-value solutions to its customers," said Alan Godfrey, executive vice president of business development and marketing at Lombardi. "The combination of Attevo's consulting expertise with Lombardi's products will help their clients achieve rapid results and measurable ROI from their process improvement strategy."
