Global 360 announced today it has been selected by Microsoft Corp. as one of only 12 Platinum Sponsors for the US ‘Next Wave of Productivity’ launch events. Global 360 is participating at Microsoft launch events in multiple cities across the U.S., including Boston, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Houston, Detroit, Minneapolis and Seattle. At the events, Global 360 will showcase its Microsoft-based process and document management suite, Process360 for SharePoint and analystView.
At the May 27 Minneapolis event, Penson Financial Services Collaboration Systems Manager, Brett Kovatch, will share how Penson is leveraging Microsoft® SharePoint® Server 2010, Microsoft ® Visio® 2010 and Global 360’s BPM suite as an enterprise-wide process platform. The platform will enable the company to more efficiently process and execute millions of financial transactions per day. Penson is leveraging SharePoint Server and BPM to eliminate paper and manual processes, improve team collaboration, and aggregate metrics and performance data across multiple departments into a single dashboard.
Noted Kovatch, “In a highly regulated industry, accountability is a huge factor in our success. We have many manual procedures that lend themselves to human error and are time consuming, so process is key. With our business growing, volumes are growing, so we need to be able to handle the influx of new business as the economy makes a comeback. Leveraging SharePoint Server and Visio, Global 360 lets us scale as we grow and easily build, track, monitor and audit our processes.”
“Global 360 has used SharePoint Server 2010 and Microsoft Visio 2010 as core elements of its business process platform,” said Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President of SharePoint at Microsoft. “The focus on the productivity of those using the system is in line with Microsoft’s belief that the tool has to work for the user and not the other way around. Global 360’s Persona-based approach to BPM takes advantage of the wide adoption of Microsoft SharePoint Server, as information workers can leverage the common, familiar Microsoft experience already in use.”
“We are thrilled to have been chosen by Microsoft as a Platinum Sponsor for this important launch,” noted Global 360 president and CEO David Mitchell. “Continuous, successful process improvement is about capturing documents, automating, and continually improving key processes while gaining new visibility using dashboards and reports – ultimately improving productivity and lowering costs. Global 360 gives organizations the power to truly achieve the next wave of productivity by leveraging their existing investments and making SharePoint Server and Visio the place to do business.”
