Our Clients:

"We found BPM Partners' independent, in-depth knowledge of the various vendor product's strengths, weaknesses and unique features to be extremely valuable.  That knowledge enabled us to quickly and effectively pare down the vast array of BPM vendors to a core subset that fit our business needs.  In addition, given our tight timeframe for making a selection, it was nice to have an intermediary between us and the vendors coordinating the most efficient evaluation process, including vendor demonstrations, proposals and other communications.  BPM Partners was a great asset to our BPM vendor selection efforts."

"BPM Partners gave us exactly what we were looking for, and provided a valuable level of BPM expertise that companies just do not have internally."

Amanda Hutchins

"BPM Partners provided the guidance and structure needed for us to feel confident we came to the right conclusion for our company."

Jep Larkin
Senior Vice President and Controller

Capital City Bank

 
"We found BPM Partners' established processes, procedures and guidelines very beneficial in bringing all the variables of our project together. In addition, as the project progressed we appreciated how they provided direction and feedback along the way, but then stood back and allowed us to make the final decisions. They were a great value for the money."
Robert Reany
Business Analyst
Carlisle Leasing International
 
"We started our project on our own, looking at several vendors over a 4-5 month period.  At the end, we would have likely chosen the vendor based upon cost and our preference for the sales representative.  At that point, we engaged BPM Partners and their expert consultant opened our eyes to different vendors, guided us through an efficient process to crystallize our business requirements, and helped us choose the best solution that aligned
with our business needs over a short time frame - keeping price and sales relationships as secondary considerations.  I am confident that if we would have engaged BPM Partners earlier, we would have selected our optimal BPM vendor faster and with greater confidence that we were making the right decision for our business."
John Buraczyk
IT Director
CF Jordan
 
"The two-day BPM Partners workshop enabled us to jump start our KPI dashboard development project. Working in partnership with BPM Partners experts we were able to ensure that we developed a thorough understanding of end-users needs and expectations, allowing us to build buy-in at an early stage and undertake a more efficient vendor selection and implementation process, thereby reducing risks for the project."
Alan Clint
Corporate Performance Manager
CGG Services
 
"The support and guidance BPM Partners provided to reinforce the value of BPM and keep everyone focused on key issues was important to us. In addition, the knowledge they shared during Engagement Management about how to bring the best resources to bear on our project helped maintain project momentum and minimize rework."
Ray Andrews
Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer
Checkpoint Systems, Inc.
 
"One of the key benefits BPM Partners brought to the table was assisting us in fleshing out our Proof of Concept.  We also found having an external expert communicate with the vendors to be quite valuable.  In the end BPM Partners helped us to accomplish our objective of choosing the best vendor to meet our needs."
Felicia Levy
Planning Manager

"BPM Partners further educated us on the budgeting market, vendors and their offerings, so that we could take a huge list of options and confidently choose the right package for Latham & Watkins."

David Socher

Latham & Watkins

 
"During our initial meetings, BPM Partners invested the right amount of time to learn the details of our business.  This understanding helped make the overall project extremely productive.  With the services provided by BPM Partners, we are confident that we arrived at a faster conclusion of our BPM initiative than if we had done it alone."

Christine Torraca
Director of Informatics
Martin's Point Health Care

 

"As we started considering performance management alternatives, our main concern was to identify the key questions that would help us answer the question, ‘what don't we know?’, about certain technology solutions.  BPM Partners was able to educate our team to ensure we had the necessary knowledge and process to choose the right solution for our company.  In addition, the guidance and assistance BPM Partners provided helped us develop a negotiation strategy that secured pricing with the vendor that we would not have been able to obtain ourselves.  This savings more than paid for BPM Partners’ services.  Overall we are a very satisfied customer."

Troy Angst
Director, Financial Reporting and Analysis
Meridian Lightweight Technologies, Inc.

 
"Without expert help from BPM Partners, we would have had difficulty arriving at the right vendor to suit our needs. We realized that we were making a 'once in a decade' choice - with the money and effort we were planning to invest, we could not afford a misstep."

Robert Tonsmeire
Vice President - Finance
Millipore

"Novamex worked with, but did not hand over the reins to the consultant. In fact, our staff became more involved in the project. By following the structured approach BPM Partners recommended for evaluating software vendors, however, it freed up our time. The product demonstrations, for instance, became more focused on our business because the consultant helped us work out specific guidelines for the vendors."

Karla Legaspy

Stephen Garcia
Vice President - Finance

Republic Bank Limited (Trinidad and Tobago)

The Media:

" I chose to work with BPM Partners because of their depth of knowledge and experience in this market. But what was most important to me was their objectivity and independence. As their business model is not compromised by software vendors' commissions or finders fees, BPM Partners was a more credible source of information for our readers. Simply put, BPM Partners has been very good to work with. They've handled our projects professionally and responsibly. They respect deadlines and the quality of their work is top-notch ."

David Blansfield
Former Publisher
Business Finance Magazine
Penton Media

" The business community needs experienced resources to help it make critical decisions on how to choose and implement a successful BPM application. We are firm believers in tapping the industry's top experts and providing them with a forum to communicate their insights and expertise directly to corporate executives, management and IT staff. This is why our magazine includes regular columns provided by industry authorities like Craig Schiff and why we invited him to speak to attendees at the BrainStorm/ DM Review Business Intelligence Seminar."

Ron Powell
Former Publisher and Editorial Director
DMReview (now Information Management)
Thomson Media

" BPM Partners is careful to observe strict vendor neutrality. The firm eschews traditional vendor partnerships and the finder's fees that go along with them; rather, Schiff asks vendors he recommends to apply that fee toward a software discount for the client."
