Share Article

Bizagi customer adidas is set to provide BPM practitioners with unique insight into BPM success at this year’s IRM UK Business Process Management Conference, Europe 2014.

Bizagi-IRMUK starting small, selecting the right processes to start with and delivering fast results, businesses can gain the traction they need to secure long-term BPM success.

The “BPM Insights from Leading Practitioners” track, will feature Eduardo Gonzalez, Collaboration & Workflow IT Manager, adidas, on Wednesday, 18th June. The sportswear provider will join global brands, including Microsoft and Skype, to help fast-track and fine tune other business’ BPM journeys.

In his presentation, Gonzalez will explain how taking a non-traditional ‘bottom up’ approach has been key to the success of adidas’ 3-year BPM initiative. This initiative delivers process automation across various departments including supply chain, marketing, finance, retail and eCommerce, addressing multi-functional needs of this global brand and focusing on reducing costs, improving compliance and transparency.

Sharing hints, tips and best practice, practitioners will hear how Bizagi’s collaborative business/IT solution connected 500 adidas sales organizations with over 400 factories, to streamline the management of over 5,000 purchase order changes per month and reduced trade vendors' on-boarding time by 50%.

Jolanta Pilecka, Bizagi CMO, commented:

“It’s easy to assume that BPM has to be a top-down initiative to be successful. And while the alignment with strategic objectives is of course essential, the adidas experience just goes to prove that by starting small, selecting the right processes to start with and delivering fast results, businesses can gain the traction they need to secure long-term BPM success.”

“At Bizagi, we’re very proud of what Eduardo and the adidas team has achieved and we’re confident that all those attending the conference will come away full of inspiration for their own BPM projects.”

Bizagi will also be exhibiting at the event providing all attendees with an ideal opportunity to discuss how to prepare for BPM success, which often starts with selecting a right first process that delivers results fast.
