AuraPortal, a company specializing in Business Process Management (BPM) software is named along with its customer, ArcelorMittal Foundation, and its channel partner, Core Synesis, as the Silver Winners for the 2010 Global Awards for Excellence in Business Process Management and Workflow.
This annual Global Awards for Excellence in BPM and Workflow is jointly sponsored by Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC), a non-profit, international organization of workflow vendors, users, analysts and university/research groups and BPM.com.
"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," Nathaniel Palmer, executive director at WfMC and Industry Analyst said in a statement.
Global Award, now in its 18th year, recognizes end-user organizations that have demonstrated excellence in implementing innovative business process solutions to meet strategic business objectives. As indicated, there were five geographical regions in which the awards were presented.
The ArcelorMittal Foundation, located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil is said to have received the silver award for the South American region. This division is focused in developing cultural, health, education and social promotion programs benefiting around 800,000 citizens.
Due to its systematic approach to its BPM initiative, the company is said to have 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.
"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," Marcelo Santos, art and culture manager at the ArcelorMittal Foundation said in a statement.
