    7. 7. UPRR is one of America's leading transportation companies. The railroad links 23 states in the western two-thirds of the country and serves the fastest-growing U.S. population centers. UPRR also connects with Canada’s rail systems and is the only railroad serving all six major gateways to Mexico, making it one of North America’s premier rail franchises. “ &quot;BHMI is a bulldog organization. They excel at developing and implementing mission critical applications. No challenge is too great and their timeliness is excellent.&quot; BHMI Client Since 1986 The Challenge The Solution <ul><li>UPRR contracted with BHMI to develop an automotive tracking system that provides up-to-the-minute status of each vehicle shipment. This system tracks shipments from an automotive plant all the way to the dealer.  The system currently does the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Handles millions of vehicle shipments each year </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supports over 150 different message formats </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Processes hundreds of thousands of messages every day </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supports vehicle inventory management at facilities across North America </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interfaces with UPRR's Train Control System </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interfaces with handheld technology used by UPRR's facilities managers </li></ul></ul>One of UPRR’s primary lines of business is the shipping of automobiles across the United States and Canada. UPRR receives shipping information from a wide range of entities in a wide range of distinctly different message formats. UPRR required a system that allowed them to receive this shipping information in real-time. They also wanted to provide continuous access to shipping status for UPRR personnel, its customers, its facility managers, and the automotive truckers. As a result, UPRR required a robust, web-based system that could support a wide range of message formats, and provide accurate and timely information.
    8. 8. For decades, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has collected weather-related data and distributed it to flight centers around the globe. The WMSCR system collects, processes, stores, and disseminates aviation weather products to major national airspace systems, airlines, and international and commercial users. WMSCR also collects, processes, and distributes up-to-the-minute flight bulletins critical for flight scheduling, security, and general operations. “ BHMI personnel are great to work with – both professionally and personally. They really take responsibility for their deliverables and the results show.” BHMI Client Since 1994 The Challenge The Solution Federal Aviation Administration <ul><li>BHMI migrated WMSCR to a scalable, more robust environment. </li></ul><ul><li>The solution was implemented on a geographically ‑dispersed, multi-node system that is fully redundant. </li></ul><ul><li>BHMI incorporated contemporary design and development techniques, using UNL modeling, focused business objects, N-tier architecture, and graphics-rich, web-based interfaces. </li></ul><ul><li>FAA deemed this project a major success because it was delivered ahead of schedule, under budget and without any production failures. </li></ul><ul><li>The technology infrastructure of WMSCR was outdated and becoming difficult to support. </li></ul><ul><li>The application was not providing the flexibility that was required. </li></ul><ul><li>The system was having more difficulty supporting high volumes and continuous availability. </li></ul><ul><li>The system was also not architected to accommodate significant spikes in traffic volumes. </li></ul><ul><li>As volumes continued to rise, it became necessary for the FAA to migrate existing and new functionality to a scalable, more robust solution. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Fiserv EFT provides ATM and debit services to more than 2,700 financial institutions nationwide. Fiserv EFT owns and manages the ACCEL/Exchange ATM/POS network, operates over 17,000 ATMs, and processes approximately 5 billion ATM and debit transactions annually — making it one of the largest EFT processors in North America. “ “ We selected BHMI due to their extensive experience with high volume transaction processing systems and their strong reputation within the financial services industry.” BHMI Client Since 2000 The Challenge The Solution <ul><li>BHMI designed and developed a solution that reduces operating costs, enhances customer support, and accommodates aggressive growth. </li></ul><ul><li>The new system provided an operational environment that allows Fiserv EFT to consistently meet or exceed SLA’s. </li></ul><ul><li>Fiserv EFT now has access to real-time transaction data via a secure browser-based user interface. </li></ul><ul><li>BHMI provided an infrastructure that allows Fiserv EFT to enhance existing products or introduce new products easily and quickly. </li></ul><ul><li>Fiserv EFT had a legacy system for settling and reconciling its electronic payments. </li></ul><ul><li>The system had become costly to maintain and was not meeting Fiserv EFT’s growing transaction volume needs. </li></ul><ul><li>The company required a solution that met the following needs: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy to maintain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Low deployment costs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High volume processing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Daily system balancing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User-friendly web interface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Secure and compliant access </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. The escalating cost of healthcare has reached alarming proportions, becoming a national dilemma and growing to be the number one concern of corporate leaders. SimplyWell offers comprehensive turnkey health risk management solutions with proven results to employers across the United States and abroad. “ We selected BHMI because their people are customer-centric and easy to work with on a day-to-day basis. They have been receptive to all our ideas – they took our vision and made it a reality.” BHMI Client Since 2004 The Challenge The Solution <ul><li>After an extensive evaluation process, SimplyWell selected BHMI to create a Java-based solution that provides secure, online access to the following data: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Health risk appraisals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal health and wellness profiles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Individualized, incentive-based action plans </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactive health education modules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Qualified medical information and resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Private, confidential and HIPAA compliant data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Customized executive and group reports </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Program participation reports </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This application, now being used by corporations around the country, has set a new standard in preventative healthcare. </li></ul><ul><li>SimplyWell wanted to address the growing corporate concerns over rising healthcare costs by offering a HIPAA compliant web-based solution that would achieve the following objectives: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Proactively take control of rising healthcare costs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce individual health risks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Achieve direct cost savings </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SimplyWell had a creative business idea but needed an experienced partner to architect, develop, and support the system. </li></ul>
    11. 11. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, insures and provides benefit administration to nearly 700,000 people. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska is committed to delivering the health and wellness solutions that people value most. “ The Agent Individual Online Application hit a homerun with our agents. This was the result of a great relationship with our key partner – BHMI.” BHMI Client Since 2007 The Challenge The Solution <ul><li>BHMI created a secure web-based Agent Individual Online Application that allows agents to do the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easily obtain product and eligibility information for accurate and consistent service. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Complete necessary claims and forms using an intuitive user interface. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Electronically sign and submit insurance documents via a secure interface. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Track and search the status of claims and applications regardless of approval status. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Receive bulletins and alerts from BCBS of NE. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>BCBS of NE had the desire to create several web portals that would provide both its providers and agents online tools that would enable them to quickly and easily access information and streamline the manual process of filling out paper forms. Below were the primary business requirements: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Eliminate the cumbersome process of using various stand-alone tools that needed to be installed for providers and agents to access the information they require. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eliminate the manual process of filling out paper insurance documents and mailing documents to and from various entities. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Deploy these web portal solutions in a short period of time. </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. Corporate Strengths <ul><li>Experience BHMI has extensive application expertise that is an inherent part of its relationship with customers. </li></ul><ul><li>Approach BHMI has a proven methodology and a powerful development environment that ensures projects are completed on time and on budget. </li></ul><ul><li>Quality BHMI has a formalized testing process to ensure the web sites and software we deliver meets your exact specifications. </li></ul><ul><li>Reputation BHMI is willing to provide customer references to prove we always get the job done and done right. </li></ul><ul><li>Stability </li></ul><ul><li>BHMI has the financial security and business longevity so you can be confident we will be around to support you for well into the future. </li></ul>
