- Sponsored by WfMC and BPM.com, presented to AuraPortal and ArcelorMittal Foundation for customer implementation excellence -
Nathaniel Palmer, WfMC Executive Director and Industry Analyst noted, “This year, we saw that the scope of implementations has increased to more non-financial case studies, like healthcare, with greater government adoption, addressing social and environmental issues. Additionally, we noticed that the BPM Center of Excellence plays a more significant role in start-up and success than in previous years of awards.”
The ArcelorMittal Foundation, located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, was founded in 1988 to develop Cultural, Health, Education, and Social Promotion programs benefiting around 800,000 citizens. Due to its systematic approach to its BPM initiative, the AMF has achieved a high level of integration of all information related to individual cultural projects, and is now able to manage its projects more efficiently and collaboratively across the organization. Some of the benefits achieved by the AMF with their BPM initiative include: a significant reduction (50%) in the analysis of projects submitted, and 100% of the proposals generated in electronic format, allowing the evaluation and response times to be reduced significantly. The organization has been able to increase the number of proposals analyzed without increasing the number of employees. “After implementing AuraPortal BPMS we are now able to know which projects best fit with our requirements and financing. We have incorporated a process centric culture since we decided to implement our solution using the AuraPortal BPMS platform,” according to Marcelo Santos, Art and Culture Manager at the ArcelorMittal Foundation.
