Independence: We are not affiliated with any software vendor and will always be objective when helping you select the right solution. We are not a vendor-partnered implementation consulting firm as most other firms offering BPM services are. This enables us to work with technology solutions from any of the many vendors that currently address performance management needs.
Focus: BPM is all we do. We are not a generic body shop or BI/Datawarehousing technology consulting shop. We are solely focused on addressing business performance management needs such as budgeting, financial and operational planning, financial consolidation, reporting and analytics, governance, risk and compliance, profitability optimization, scorecards and dashboards.
Expertise: The people of BPM Partners each have on average 25+ years experience in the space. We have been featured in dozens of articles and are the authors of the Performance Management Vendor Landscape Matrix, the most comprehensive analyst report covering this market. We present the annual Pulse of Performance Management webcast in conjunction with IndustryWeek that reviews major trends and key vendors. BPM Partners also conducts the annual BPM Pulse Research Study which gathers data for project benchmarking and detailed vendor customer satisfaction ratings. BPM Partners shares its expertise in an annual Buyers Guide for Budgeting and Planning Solutions, and also one for Financial Consolidation and Reporting.
Approach: Our experts join your team and lead it to success by advising, guiding, and coaching. We do not dictate, demand, or dominate (related quote from: Novamex).
Unique Perspective: Since most of our staff have worked at the major BPM software vendors , we have a unique view in to these solutions that we can share with you.
Cost Effective: Our rates and discount structure are very competitive. We manage towards short duration projects so that we can accelerate your payback period. With our depth of BPM knowledge and proven methodology we are certain that your total project cost will be less when working with BPM Partners than with any other service provider, vendor, or even on your own. Many clients have commented that we saved them much more than we cost in resource hours, in vendor software/service pricing, etc. (related quotes from: Meridian and Xerium). In addition, most of our services are offered for a fixed fee. No risk, no surprises.
Customer Satisfaction: Our CEO has made a career out of creating highly satisfied clients. He has enabled the organizations he has led to receive numerous service awards including: Inc. Positive Performer, Connecticut Quality Improvement, and SSPA STAR award.
Industry Leadership: We are a founding member of the BPM Standards Group, an industry group dedicated to accelerating the successful adoption of BPM across the enterprise by providing clear and consistent definitions, frameworks, best practices, and implementation roadmaps. BPM Partners has provided its expertise to organizations such as APQC (American Productivity & Quality Center), TDWI (The Data Warehousing Institute), CFO Magazine, TechTarget, IndustryWeek, Business Finance, Information Management, AFP (Association for Financial Professionals), IMA (Institute of Management Accountants) and several others.
