It's impossible to find a single dissatisfied customer.

    According to Forrester, "Lombardi is a truly visionary human-centric BPMS vendor" and is "a true Leader for its innovation around process design, optimization, and collaboration." In the report, Colin Teubner, analyst, information management, at Forrester Research writes, "2007 saw Lombardi release Blueprint, a groundbreaking set of SaaS tools for rapid process modeling and discovery. This adds to the vendor's excellent integration with SharePoint and unmatched tools for analyzing processes through data-driven simulation and what-if scenarios."

The report adds, "Collaborative development is another major differentiator in Lombardi's BPMS: Both design and runtime collaboration tools are provided that really set this product apart from its competitors." Finally, the report concludes, "It's impossible to find a single dissatisfied customer."

In Forrester's evaluation, Lombardi was cited as a leader regarding its current offering and strategy. Lombardi received its top scores in the areas of modeling, process solution, and product architecture.

"At Lombardi, we are relentlessly focused on making BPM simple and accessible to a much wider audience within businesses of all sizes," said Phil Gilbert, EVP and CTO at Lombardi. "Our Software-as-a-Service and Microsoft Office-based offerings and our unmatched process-analytic capabilities and focus on organizational management mean that more people can benefit from BPM faster than ever before. These key differentiators help people achieve their process design, optimization, and collaboration goals."

In February 2007, Lombardi released Blueprint(TM) (http://www.lombardi.com/bpm-blueprint-product.php), the first on-demand collaborative process planning tool that enables companies to map processes, identify problems and prioritize improvement opportunities. Processes created in Blueprint can be published in Teamworks 6 Enterprise (http://www.lombardi.com/enterprise-bpm-software.php) and executed instantaneously. Any changes made to process models in the Teamworks Authoring Environment, such as those recommended by the Teamworks Optimizer (http://www.lombardi.com/business-process-improvement.php), are published back to the Blueprint repository for complete, round-trip integration. This approach allows for rapid, iterative process-model development and collaboration between business analysts and process authors.

"We are proud to be positioned as a Leader by Forrester," said Rod Favaron, president and CEO of Lombardi. "As a process-driven company, everyone at Lombardi is dedicated to delivering the most innovative BPM products and services, providing the best customer experience, and to helping our customers deliver superior business results."
