London, UK (PRWEB UK) 21 August 2014
AgFirst Farm Credit Bank, Columbia, South Carolina, USA has selected Bizagi BPMS for a strategic BPM initiative following an extensive due diligence. Bizagi BPM Suite will be used to rapidly develop numerous departmental business solutions that will improve organizational efficiencies.
A thorough evaluation process compared several leading BPMS vendors and included an onsite Proof-of-Concept project, which Bizagi won. The key factor that differentiated Bizagi against its competitors was its ease of use and rapid application development environment.
Using the Bizagi Process Modeler, Business and Technical teams have been able to effectively collaborate to rapidly build robust, process-oriented systems. These systems are available through an intuitive web or mobile-based user interface and include advanced reporting and analytics capabilities.
AgFirst has also recognized the great benefits to be gained from Bizagi’s very comprehensive self-service ‘knowledge center’ which includes free eLearning courses, full product documentation and video tutorials. Tailored online instructor-led training courses have enabled fast knowledge transfer and further decreased the overall risk of investment.
Tony Stone, VP of Business Applications at AgFirst commented:
“We like Bizagi’s transparent business model; the ability to download both Modeler and Studio for free gave us a welcome opportunity to test the system’s capabilities in great detail prior to purchasing. Bizagi’s tools that allow for rapid application development and promote collaboration between business and technology teams, are key product strengths. Furthermore, using the online support and Bizagi consulting services, we were able to quickly become self-sufficient in using the product.”
Gustavo Gomez, Bizagi CEO added:
“I’m very pleased that AgFirst has selected Bizagi to build their BPM based solution. As AgFirst has demonstrated, providing prospects with early access to the software is clearly an effective measure; customers like the idea of testing our capabilities to the full before making any financial commitment. They also tell me that dealing with Bizagi has been very refreshing and that our entrepreneurial approach to business made this a very easy decision for them, which is all credit to the Bizagi team.”
