...we believe this is a great way to support our mission on an entirely different scale with people who – like our clients – are passionate about improving their businesses.
Plymouth Meeting, PA (PRWEB) March 29, 2010
ActiveStrategy, Inc., the leading provider of comprehensive performance management software and services, is marking the tenth anniversary of its founding this month and celebrating the milestone by establishing a micro-financing lending team, which will build upon ActiveStrategy's mission to help organizations improve their business results.
The original concept behind the founding of ActiveStrategy was to develop a technology solution that would allow companies to execute business strategies more effectively and efficiently, automating what were then considered proven – but cumbersome to deploy – performance management and performance measurement techniques and methodologies, such as Balanced Scorecards, Baldrige criteria, Six Sigma, and others. Since that time, ActiveStrategy Enterprise software has been deployed to hundreds of thousands of users in a wide-array of industries and has been credited for improving organizational communication, aligning people to strategy, streamlining business processes, enhancing accountability for performance, and contributing to dramatic improvements in business results.
According to founder Jeff Bunting, "Looking back, what's really noteworthy is that our very first few clients from nearly a decade ago are still active clients today, including a global pharmaceutical company, a regional tax administrator, and an internationally-known high-tech manufacturer. From the beginning, our focus has been on improving clients' business results and these long-term clients are a great indicator of our success in doing so."
Co-founder Jack Steele explained that "It's been an incredibly gratifying ten years. We've helped hospitals actually save people's lives, we've helped governments provide remarkably better service to their citizens, we've helped non-profits figure out for the first time in their existence how to measure their missions and deliver on their promises, we've helped mid-size companies grow revenues by tens of millions of dollars, and have helped several large organizations save hundreds of millions, too. It's exciting to think about what we can help our clients achieve over the next ten years."
To celebrate this milestone, the company is creating an ActiveStrategy Lending Team through the micro-financing Web site, Kiva.org. ActiveStrategy employees and clients will be invited to join the ActiveStrategy Lending Team. The pooled funds will be used to make small loans to low-income entrepreneurs around the world through Kiva's network, which empowers impoverished people to enjoy improved business success. "Our mission as a company is to help all of our client organizations achieve better results, so we believe this is a great way to support our mission on an entirely different scale with people who – like our clients – are passionate about improving their businesses," said Mr. Bunting.
