After some informal mentoring during the sales cycle, the customer’s technical team attended our basic training classes and jumped right into development. This is highly unusual for such a complex and visible project. Workflow
      • Lengthy Cycle Time. Opening accounts for both new and existing customers took too long and the costs were high.
      • Error prone. Manually transferring information between the customer, front office administration and account relationship manager led to errors in the data.
      • Swivel Chair Integrations. Unconsolidated user interfaces required the use of a complex web of systems to process new accounts.
    Click for Matrix
  • Leading Private Investment Bank Decreases Risk in Processes
      • Disparate Systems and Teams. The process involved 5 applications and 3 teams.
      • Manual Exception Handling and Rework. Up to 30% of the deals each day suffered from data entry errors that required manual intervention and correction at various points.
      • Lack of End-to-End Visibility. The ever-increasing regulations of financial services requires tremendous visibility. Each point application had different levels of auditing and there was no assessment of the ‘white space’ between applications.
      • Process efficiency improved by 60%
      • Complexity reduced by 30% after integrating applications
      • Eliminated unsupported workarounds to legacy systems

      • Corporate Initiative to Grow 300% Over an 18 month Period. This plan focused on enhancing customer service to achieve growth.
      • No Single View of the Loan. Three separate Loan Origination Systems resulted in a lack of visibility into the end-to-end loan process.

    Blueprint Click for Matrix
  • Customer Use Cases: Healthcare Click for Matrix
  • Leading Hospital Streamlines New Hire On-Boarding Process
      • Error-prone. Hire form printouts usually contained errors and handwritten corrections were often misinterpreted or overlooked.
      • Time Consuming. The file would get lost across the 5 campuses and was often faxed back and forth redundantly. Over 25 hours were spent completing, sorting and correcting data. With a hire rate of over 30 employees a week this method was ineffective.
      • Poor Visibility. No one knew how many people would be at orientation sessions. At times people were missing, given the wrong dates or didn’t have pre-requisites completed.

      • Recovered an additional £3 million in referrals from health authorities
      • Increased visibility into process performance and areas that needed improvement
    Challenges Results This European based hospital became a Lombardi customer in Q3 of 2007. A couple of months after full implementation across the hospital system, the team was confident about the success of the project – the technology is proactively driving performance, and the executive team is very enthusiastic about the possibilities associated with broader rollout of the technology and the BPM approach.
      • Performance Measurement. Due to the highly manual process hospital was unable to measure all segments of their overall end-to-end patient care process.
      • Managing Referrals. Referrals came from other hospitals and arrangements with over 300 distinct authorities, creating a complicated referral process.
      • Existing Systems. Existing legacy systems and applications needed to be integrated with a BPM approach.

      • Projected reduction of operational costs
      • Increased asset leverage through collaboration
    Challenges Results This US based fully integrated pharmacy health care company has been a Lombardi customer since Q2 of 2009. The OCM group took the initial playback "on the road." They presented a demonstration to our stores across the country. The branch manager was "ecstatic" after the demo. His comments included: THIS HAS LOGIC! When can we get it? Anything we can do to decrease variability and increased efficiency is great!
      • Unmanaged Rules. Needed a rules engine to support the management of business requirements within the processes.
